Musically loud and appealingly sloppy while lyrically quite sentimental and soft, Bakesale by Sebadoh is one of the best records of the 90s. It will be reissed by Domino in early April with a full disc of singles, EP tracks and rarities, which includes the beloved Rebound EP I clung to so dearly back in those hazy college days...

This just in: Good news for those of us who enjoyed Bob Dylan's fascinating Chronicles: Volume 1! The Guardian UK is reporting that Dylan has signed a massive six book deal with Simon & Schuster!
 
At least two of the books will be further Chronicles, and potentially some of the others will be "a collection of Dylan's musings from the Theme Time Radio Hour show he presents on the Sirius XM satellite channel."
 
That Dylan, he just gets more and more bard-like with age! He's unstoppable.

Could I get any more obsessed with those World Series Champions, the San Francisco Giants?

The answer is a resounding YES, not just from me, I am sure, but from practically everyone in the Bay Area -- it was reported today that the 2011 team is in talks to get what is being billed as its very own docuseries on...Showtime (eh.), covering the whole season, from Spring Training through the (hopefully) triumphant end, no doubt with some tantalizing appearances by The Machine somewhere in there.

Glen and Marketa have hit the Amoeba stage several times, and the Oscar winners even took time out a while back to tell us What's in Their Bag:
