E, The Big Star box is amazing--great sound quality, the demos are informative, there's a cool concert never before released in its entirety. God they were good.

Queen, it's almost time for Cattie's Home at Christmas II! Woo-hoo!

Generik, do you know the Deadstring Brothers' cover of "Get Up Jake"? It's pretty cool.
