While 48 percent of American teenagers reported buying not one CD in 2007, this old fart spent the year adding lavishly to my collection, with my Amazon purchases reaching new highs in '07. While shopping online last night I came across quite a surprising and wonderful find -- the debut Romeo Void album (1981's "It's a Condition") and singer Debora Iyall's sole solo release (1986's "Strange Language") on compact disc for the first time ever -- packaged on one disc from the good people over at Wounded Bird Records.
Although I had long ago gotten my vinyl of these two gems ripped to disc, an official release (complete with "White Sweater" b-side bonus track "Apache") was what I'd always dreamed of, and if the band actually gets some royalties out of their great work, so much the better. I share this with you because I figure that if I -- one of the band's most psychotic fans -- hadn't even heard about this monumental release (apparently it came out last summer), then I doubt many others have either. Hopefully this will help spread the word to other fans of this often overlooked San Francisco band that was truly one of the highlights of the American New Wave scene.
"Never Say Never"
"A Girl in Trouble (Is a Temporary Thing)"
Super bonus! Here are MP3s of Romeo Void's unreleased 1993 reunion demos. The label didn't show much interest, but hardcore fans will love them:

"Into Your Arms" by The Lemonheads
By the time I finally began to get over my post-'80s music shock (Bananarama is still the bomb!) and started to pay attention to "the new breed," the 1990s were pretty much over. That left me with a number of blind spots, but two bands that did make my radar were The Lemonheads (dreamy Evan Dando was undoubtedly to thank for that) and the ridiculously cool and talented Breeders (I was even one of the 10 people who showed up to see the Kelley Deal 6000 live at the Black Cat back in D.C.).
Jump ahead to 2008 and both of these bands are slated to make concert appearances here in New York in the next few weeks. In case you're wondering, yes, I'll be
putting on the ole flannel shirt and pushing my way to the front of the stage and loving every minute of it all. I've got a lost decade to catch up on, you know ...

Please send resume and 8x10 headshot to:
Office of Senator Larry Craig
ATTN: Mark Foley
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510-1203
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Idaho Senator Larry Craig is currently seeking intern applications for the summer term, which runs from May to August. The application deadline is March 15, however if more time is needed for the application process, please contact Senator Craig's office for an extension. Craig offers paid internships within the Washington, D.C., office. Preference is given to Idaho applicants attending Idaho schools who are in their junior or senior years of college (including graduating seniors).
'"Interns have the chance to be an essential part of a working congressional office," said Craig. "They participate in the legislative process as well as ensure that constituent services run smoothly. For those interested in politics, it is an incredible opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at how our government functions while serving the people of Idaho."
Interns are paired with staff members based on experience and interests, in order to best utilize their talents. They are also expected to fulfill some administrative duties such as answering phones, sorting mail and greeting constituents.

Saw this on my brother's blog, a memo from a former colleague of his at the Washington Times (yes, the one owned by Sun Myung Moon, where Bill worked from 1989 to 1997), his successor's successor as copy chief, is making the rounds in the blogosphere:

Subject: Style changes
Here are some recent updates to TWT style.

2) Gay is approved for copy and preferred over homosexual, except in clinical references or references to sexual activity.
3) The quotation marks will come off gay marriage (preferred over homosexual marriage).
4) Moderate is approved, but centrist is still allowed.
5) We will use illegal immigrants, not illegal aliens.
(Be sure to read what my brother has to say about No. 3 here.)
