29 Down, 23 To Go

Yamuna's Table is a fascinating book, filled with flavorful vegetarian Indian dishes. If you enjoy Indian food, I highly recommend this cookbook, even if you're not a vegetarian. Many thanks to Lalitree for the recommendation.

Next on my list is Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground 1981-1991, by Michael Azerrad. I picked this book up several years ago, read the chapters on Sonic Youth and the Replacements, then put it down, only to lose it in the clutter that is my "to read" pile. With chapters on Big Black, Mission of Burma, and Beat Happening (among others), I'm looking forward to this book of indie rock history.

"Our Band Could Be Your Life" is a great book. I read it two summers ago and found it fascinating. BTW, your blog is one of the best I've ever seen. I check it out every day. Keep up the good work!

I echo the above comments - Azerrad's book is a work of genius and reminds you of the reasons you got into music in the first place - it's wonderful stuff and something I recommend it to anyone who even has a passing interest in alternative music. The chapters on The Replacements and Minutemen are particual highlights...

I can't recommend the Azerrad book highly enough. Obviously you've already had a taster of what it's like, but the whole thing is informative and interesting and written with a captivating passion and enthusiasm. Enjoy!

A new Indian restaurant just opened here in Huntsville with the nondescriptive name of "Vinny's." I love some Indian food -- my daughter is crazy for it, though.
