Amy Dykes, half of I Am The World Trade Center, has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. Well wishes and get well notes can be sent to P.O. Box 829 Athens, GA 30603. Good thoughts, positive energy and prayers can be sent via air mail...

Goodbye to The Rub... thankfully we'll still have Paul writing reviews at 75 or Less and contributing occasionally to done waiting.

Passenger86's interview series has been outstanding so far, with members of The Cars, Devo, and Negativland.

Yesterday on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic: M. Ward (swoon). Today... Snow Patrol invades the studio.

Wondering what the Pixies are playing this tour? Here are setlists of every show, as well as bittorrent download links.

Have I mentioned Patterson Hood's solo album, Killers & Stars? Flagpole talks to him about the record.

My none too shabby friend Kelly needs song suggestions for the opening ceremony for the Relay For Life, "Something upbeat, positive, up-tempo. Perhaps instrumental - maybe something that rocks a bit. The theme from 'Rocky' is just a little corny (to me, at least.) Think sporting event - Olympics - etc. Please give me some ideas - my brain is useless right now. Pretty please." Help out a largehearted friend if you can, and send some suggestions her way.

If (like me) you missed the finale of Friends last night and (unlike me) desperately want to see it, pick up the final episode on DVD, to be released next Tuesday.

Thanks for the shout-out. I'm glad you like those old interviews. I've got a few more to post in the next week or so (I'm putting my Man...or Astro-Man? interview up right now).

btw - I will reluctantly admit that I watched the last episode of Friends last night. (I'd just walked in the door at 9:00 p.m.) I was really disappointed. Not that my expectations were that high to begin with, but it's been a guilty pleasure for a while. Kind of like my Adam Sandler addiction.

Joe: it's been an excellent week for MBE, I didn't even mention the Devendra Banhart show earlier this week.

Jere: Mann or Astro-Man brings back many fond memories of wild shows. I'll look forward to that review.

Kelly: You are always welcome. I watched a couple of episodes of Friends over the years, but have never been a fan. I am an Adam Sandler fan, though, and have converted Linda from an unbeliever, now she likes his movies even more than I do.
