Picked up the new Springsteen cd this morning and much to my dismay, its packaged in the Digipak format rather than in a jewel case. I realize the digipak is more earth friendly but I prefer the jewel box. Gotta say Magic just might be the worst Springsteen album cover ever. Kinda looks like they were going after a Darkness on the Edge of Town vibe. While I'm not crazy about the cover, the music itself is top notch. Beyond a doubt the best rock record Springsteen has made since the River. Best of all, its short. 12 songs and 40 some odd minutes. I'd rather have a dozen quality songs than 12 good and 6 filler which is usually the case in the cd age.
Did ya stay up and watch the baseball game? That Rockies and Padres game was one for the ages. 13 innings before the Rockies emerge with the 9-8 victory and a trip to the playoffs to take on the Phillies. The playoffs by the way are on TBS for the first time. Early starts too. Game one of the Indians & Yankees is scheduled for 630pm on Thursday while game 2 is at 5pm Friday.
Why does the Today show still book Ann Coulter as a guest? I can't imagine she brings in ratings.
Today of course also spent a lot of time dealing with Britney losing custody of her kids. I guess thats a more important story than the piece in the NY Times today about how the world is ending:http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/02/science/earth/02arct.html?_r=1&oref=slogin
One last Britney note...how great of a reality series would this be...you take her, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and all the other people who are famous for being famous....you set them each up with a mountain of blow (like at the end of Scarface) and you see who can snort themselves to death first....too harsh? Not harsh enough?
