Ani DiFranco, Patterson Hood, Drive By Truckers: Questions and Answers with Patterson Hood - The Smoke-Filled Room:

"Crawdaddy!: Overtly political songwriting seems greatly diminished these days, in rock, folk, and elsewhere. How do you see your role as a songwriter? Do you feel an obligation to write about politics?

Hood: I write about life, but much of life is controlled by and affected by politics. I don't write many overtly political songs, but I write a lot about the personal side of how people have been affected by political actions. The personal consequences of politics."

Booker T. Jones

Booker T: A Soul Man Tackles OutKast : NPR Music:

"All this compatibility is palpable on Potato Hole, a guitar-loaded record that works mostly in robust instrumental rock but also explores R&B and funk. While most of the songs are memorable Jones originals, the organist and sometime guitarist includes three covers, among them the Andre 3000-helmed OutKast smash from 2003, 'Hey Ya.'"


Dexateens - Singlewide - Twangville

In today’s crowded field of twangy-rock bands that aspire to be something greater than a glorified Skynyrd tribute band, all-too few of those bands ever actually break out. Chances are slim that a certain new or little known band will produce something that really sets them apart from being just another southern rock band that doesn’t have Mike Cooley, Ben Nichols or Patterson Hood writing and performing their songs. With their most recent release, Singlewide, The Dexateens have done just that, and as a result, the guys from Tuscaloosa have prodcued a disc that will likely make the various Jack Daniels swilling, rebel flag waving clones think about working up a new version of something other than “Gimme Three Steps”.

The Associated Press: Ex-Pink Floyd rocker wants Israeli wall down:

"AIDA REFUGEE CAMP, West Bank (AP) — The legendary rocker and co-founder of Pink Floyd says he would give a concert in a flash if Israel's West Bank wall is torn down."

Bought this one when it came out. Cassette tape, baby.

"3 Feet High and Rising": De La Soul's Track by Track Guide to Groundbreaking 1989 LP : Rolling Stone:

"It's been 20 years since De La Soul introduced a funkier, sunnier brand of hip-hop with the genre-broadening classic 3 Feet High and Rising, an album that went on to inspire legions of innovative followers from Digable Planets and Mos Def to OutKast and Kanye West. Mase, Posdnous and Trugoy looked back at 3 Feet and shared some of their plans to commemorate the LP's anniversary in an exclusive track-by-track interview with Rolling Stone."


Did Ex-Dawson's Creek Show Runner Just Trash Katie Holmes? - News - Yahoo! TV

Tom then went on to seemingly trash Dawson's stars Katie Holmes, James Van Der Beek, Joshua Jackson and Michelle Williams. Check this craziness out...

"The experience was miserable," he continued about Dawson's. "But it was a four-year boot camp. It was like going to TV grad school and learning how to run a television show. Anybody on that show who could make a decision was allowed to run it at some point. I inherited the very awkward college years, and I almost ran the show into the ground. But I learned everything that I needed to know about how to run a show."

When the panel moderator asked, "What was it specifically that made it such a challenge?" Tom dropped this bomb: "It was the four monstrous actors at the core of it."

The audience erupted in laughter as Tom continued, saying: "They were very young, and they got very famous, and they made life miserable for any writer or producer on the show."

You may be asking yourself why in the hell I posted an article about Dawson's Creek.

Well... and I've been hesitant to post this 'cause it was another life, but....

All I have to say is that Michelle Williams was very cool. We chatted in-between takes and she always took the time to sign autographs and chat with some young fans that hung around the set.

And Joshua Jackson once saved someone drowning at Wrightsville Beach... and so have I... but no article was written about my save.... Lots of idiots get into the water at W.B.
