Nick Hornby's Short List - The Short List of Things to Do - TIME:
"Rock 'n' roll, straight up
Drive-By Truckers are intelligent in a way that I really appreciate as a writer. They're just guys being smart in their own space: guitars and drums and big choruses. It's been done before, but they do it well. I've been playing Brighter Than Creation's Dark a lot."

Playmixt= playlist mix tape

In Barr Weissman’s 2010 documentary, The Secret to a Happy Ending, there’s great balance between live performance and revealing interview. The subject this time is not a blockbuster band that’s topping the charts or selling out arenas and stadiums on their mammoth concert tour. The band is called Drive-by Truckers, and they’ve most likely played a blistering live show within a reasonable driving distance of wherever you are right now. This film about them is without a doubt a new addition to the pantheon of great rock and roll films

Playmixt= playlist mix tape:
"From the audience came a question to Mike Cooley about whether he knows a lot about cars. His response? “These hands don’t work! We write about cars, girls and booze.” Much laughter."

Great pics re: Happy Ending movie! Any earthly idea when those of us outside of mega-metro areas can actually see it?

I haven't thought about naming one of my beers after a DBT song, but "Righteous Path" is a great name for a double IPA.

APGG: Doc is in festival stage. Working on finding a distributor. DVD ETA YTBK.

Jez: That's a perfect name for an IPA. Do it!
