I found the Dixie Chicks CD!

Now I just have to learn how to operate the 300 disk CD changer that Santa brought.

Good thing I can play music on my computer. This is going to make the next hour of paper work go so much faster!

Um, no, it was sitting in a jewel box on a pile of CDs right under the new changer.

Total and utter vindication. I am pickled pink with their big wins! Oh and, 'allo!

This post is pretty much not worth my comment time, but since Eva was here I just wanted to say hi to her.

Oh, and shut up, because I'm not even going to pretend like I've written anything decent lately either.

Well done for finding the CD.

As for the Dixie Chicks, perhaps we should take their lead and start speaking out against th Iran War...

...oops, sorry, it hasn't actually happened yet. Darn me and my prophetic soul...

[apologies for cynicism; not had much fudge of late]

I gotta say, I really liked the Chicks' earlier stuff much more. The new album isn't bad, exactly. And I'm certainly sympathetic to its political backstory. I just didn't find many of the new songs musically or lyrically engaging.

Although I'm happy you found your copy, for your sake.

...and about the Dixie Chicks winning - why is anyone surprised, if it was politically motivated - that entertainment industry voters would give awards to artists who are anti-war? That's like being surprised an Oscar was given to Michael Moore. Forgive my cynicism, but I think it was pretty predictable, given today's political climate.

Now, if you want to talk about the music, I'm really happy for Mary J. Blige. I think she is amazing. I love John Mayer's music, and I'm glad he won. But I was rooting for either Gnarls Barkley or Corrine Bailey Rae for Record of the Year. I love them both.

It's important that the Chicks won -- not just because they're amazing musicians, but it's a real testament to their strength of character, to suffer the backlash they did and come back swinging with a record called "Not Ready To Make Nice." For once, the content of the song is as important as the melody.

And a nice political statement to boot.

I skipped the 300-disk changer and bought an iPod and the little iPod speaker -- I've crammed 400 CDs into that little thing so far, with room for 400 more. Love it, love it, love it.

Hallo, Vangie! Thanks for the postcard! It's nice when people stay in touch even while vacationing on the mothership. Miss you.

Shut up, JP. Just shut up. (Dang. I wanted to be scathing. Too early).

No kidding, D. It's deja vu all over again with these clowns. Once again, on behalf of most of the American people, sorry. Really, really sorry. And get some fudge. I need some, too.

LA: Pft. To each their own.

Gina: It's what keeps us strong.
