"...Can you catch a case of happy? Increasingly, the answer seems to be yes..."

This probably isn't an original observation, but it's funny when an actor is named Jon Hamm. It's like being a singer called Bill Tonedeaf or something.

I am liking this smokin' hot garage rock by Detroit's the Sights, who have apparently been around since the last millennium.

When I saw Juliana Hatfield play last October, I noticed that she seemed alarmingly thin--her legs were the circumference of most people's arms, and her face seemed pallid. Having just read her memoirs, wherein she mentions having recovered from an eating disorder, I figured she was ok and on the road to recovery. But this blog post of hers from November 9 confirms my suspicions that she had, at the time, fallen off the E.D. wagon, as it were. Sounds like she is doing well now, though.

If you haven't done the recent "shuffle meme" that's been goin' around, I highly recommend it. The results are not only prescient but hilarious.

1. Put your iPod, iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc. on shuffle.

2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.

3. Write the name of that song down, no matter how silly it sounds.
