Bracket lovers (Hot Rox, I'm looking at you) and list-makers are sure to enjoy this book, which pits, well, everything against everything else and comes up with the "best" in every category.

Some of the more amusing--if utterly wrong! wrong! wrong!--competitions include "Best Paul Simon Songs," "Best Your Boss's Annoying Habits," and "Marital Arguments."

I am so excited to see that Jane Smiley has a new-ish novel that I am willing to overlook the fact that it's about (snore) Hollywood. I will report all findings.

This just in: Golden Dogs are a neat band--certainly part of the whole new wave renaissance, but not empty posturing in front of a keyboard--the tunes are actually good, and the vocal delivery is nice and urgent.
