Mad props to you on my blog today for the Alesmith.

I used to think Elvis Costello sucked and had no idea why anyone ever listened to him. Now, here in my mid-30s...I get it. I get why he is a great musician and songwriter.

Wow, three GBV and two Lennon from the same album.

Also that Elvis Costello talk show episode with the Police was pretty damn good.
