In and out with jazz, but this list never manages to hit even the third best song on any of the CDs it played. Oh well. Fitting probably that my fave song of the list is called "Wrong Again."

George, that's a wicked bad Lambchop song. But the Grandaddy's not bad, as far as Grandaddy goes.

Me, I've got about 50% pretty darn good stuff this week.

Yeah, not a very good Lambchop song indeed. Not a Grandaddy fan?

I hope Maine was great--I assume you're back in PA since you're posting. Let me know when you get the covers CDs.

I like Grandaddy. Well enough. I dunno, they can be annoying.

Yes, we're back. God it's beautiful up there. But we went too far into the boonies for good -- make that great -- food. The Acadia peninsula is apparently the cutoff for exceptional food. There were some competent places, places that tried. And I gave them credit for that. But there were many truly awful places. It was a great relief, foodwise, to get back to Portland.

I had to cancel at my beloved Primo, in midcoast Rockland, ME, because of bad timing. But I got my skate anyway, the next night at Portland's Fore Street Grill, which was absolutely freaking out of this world fantastic on the actual anniversary night. God, what a place. 555 the next night was exquisite too, although we had to rush to get two courses in and make it to the airport.

I want to move to Maine. As I say, it's gorgeous. And life is too short not to live near a few exceptional restaurants.

Now that I'm sated on skate I'm dreaming of a 555 stewed duck tartlet...

(Oh, I'll send out my mix CD if you've sent yours. And I'll join that other thing you invo-ed me for. I'm way behind on my life right now.)
