Oh it's an embarassment of riches around here right now. Chart and Spin both arrived yesterday and on Friday I bought the NME which I haven't even glanced at yet. It's a very good thing I'm not working tomorrow, as I've got a pile o' good reading to do.

And from the quick glances I did take, I see that Neko Case is all over these mags, and she was even featured full front-page of the Entertainment section of the Calgary Herald today. Well that's because her new cd Fox Confessor Brings the Flood was released today, of course. (Note to self: stop at cd store tomorrow)

Jerry is still mad at her for ditching the New Pornographers gig here a couple of weeks ago, but when you are a crazy-busy indie babe, you can't do everything. And when everybody wants you, sometimes someone is going to be disappointed.

He's also all worried that with all the exposure that Neko is suddenly receiving, she is going to be spoiled somehow, not be his little secret anymore, I guess. I disagree, more recognition will not ruin Neko Case. It's not like she's going to suddenly lose all her talent and become Nickelback or the Killers or anything like that.

I'll leave you with a couple of quips that I did happen upon during a fast flip through my reading material (and bear in mind that I haven't even cracked open NME yet, which is usually the most outrageous of the bunch):

Pink Mountaintops: "like the Brian Jonestown Massacre minus the schizophrenia" (Spin)

" I see Bry's underpants" (ie Bry Webb - Constantines) - chartattack.com/gallery/20020325-threegut.cfm (Chart) - I am going to go check that one out right now!

Your pile of magazines and a day off sound like heaven. Happy reading!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Thanks Jacquie! Of course you know what days off actually turn into - chore days. But a girl can dream.

Hello Barbara B...You have a new reader, Me! :) I like reading your blog, interesting stuff. Nice to meet you. Have a great day off, you will probley find a way to do both. Chores and Read~ Magizines are my thing too. I can never sit still long enough to read a book.

Will said...

Magazine day - I need one of those myself, considering I haven't even gotten to read last month's Spin yet. I picked up Neko Case last night and began listening to it this morning - amazing. The New Pornographers aren't quite a supergroup without her.

Is it just me or is she completely hot?

Ok, perhaps my taste in music isn't up to snuff, I like Nickleback! Hummm, now I know how to punish you next time we are on a road trip! hahahaha (evil laugh).

Hi Ocean - welcome! Thanks for the kind thoughts. I'll probably end up blowing off most of the day blogging (it is far too easy to get lost in the blogosphere). I still need to read books, but only at bedtime.

Will - last month's Spin! You are worse than me!
I now MUST buy Fox Confessor Brings the Flood today, based on your recommendation. I sadly have to agree that the New Pornographers were not quite the same without Neko Case. In their concert here a few weeks ago, they were still lively and rocked the place, and Carl is still my favourite ginger-haired rock star who looks like an accountant, but without Neko's powerful vocals on some of the critical songs, they just didn't quite make it.

Jeff, it's NOT just you. Neko Case is so gorgeous and hot. I confess to having a hetero-girl-crush on her (and anyone who says they don't, is a damn liar!)

Argghhhh, Bev - I'm banning your ass off of my site! No Nickelback allowed in MY car, and if it's in someone else's car, I may just bail out at 120 kms/hr. You are an evil, evil woman (and that's why we love you).

Monica said...

That's okay. I forgive you, to each his own. I really do like Nickelback. Can't explain why, its just one of those things!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

So we're good, Monica? We agree to disagree, and that's all anybody can ask.

Tydes Perdition said...

I just did a quick search on her and I found this picture. *spooge*

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Whoa, Jeff, I can see her girly bits! Damn, she's as bad as Bry Webb! What is it with these indie hawties running about in their undies?

Tydes Perdition said...

I don't know, but I'm likin' it.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

J, that's cause you are naughty.

Tydes Perdition said...

I know. *giggle*

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Why, Jeff, I've never heard you giggle before. I do believe you are much less stern than I had orginally assumed you were.

Tydes Perdition said...

That was a very stern giggle.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

bwhahaha - king of the comebacks, you are!
