Sex and Violence, Melody and Silence...

Actually , the subject's sort of misleading, but it's only been about four days since I've understood the mumblings of Richard Ashcroft toward the end of "Bittersweet Symphony" - so that phrase is buzzing through my head.

A few things...
Tuesday was this year's "super Tuesday" of album releases, with The Killers (meh), Beck (not too bad), The Decemberists (right on...) and The Hold Steady (f**kin' killer) all releasing new stuff. In addition, I've been following the Foley scandal in Florida. A few things...

There's no positive way to spin this. Rush Limbaugh, Fox News can say "well, Bill Clinton did the same thing..." - uh, no. Monica was a consenting adult. Secondly, I think the revelation that Foley was gay really doesn't have anything to do with the case. He hit on a minor - and as a result, may be paying the price for legislation he helped pass. Note to Alanis Morrissette - THAT right there...is irony.
