Buddy Miller update!

Paste: You recently had an Americana Music Award for Best Song. What are your plans for the future? Do you have another album coming out? Are you about to tour again?
Miller: Yeah, I’m going home from the boat and finishing up a record that I’m gonna start, and it’ll be out in August, I’m hoping. I‚Äôm just putting the pieces together, and I’m hoping to talk my wife Julie into being a pretty big part of that record.

Paste: Will this be another duet album?
Miller: I don’t know what it’s gonna be yet, but I know there’s gonna be a record out in August and I know she’s written a ton of great songs, so you know… We’re just getting home, and we play around the house and see what happens.

And to that I say, WOO HOOO!!!


Paste magazine’s Josh Jackson blogs!

Hooray! Josh Jackson of Paste magazine has started a blog of his own at the Paste site.

I’m still grateful for his comments on Auralia’s Colors last year.


When it comes to great comic strips, can anybody improve on Garfield?

Yes they can. Okay, I’m late to this party, but Garfield Minus Garfield is brilliant. The New York Times just noticed, and I’m glad because I didn’t know about this yet.
