Speed round:

I have my first job interview Friday. It's with a KFC/Taco Bell. Hey, it's a job. Have now applied at about 15-odd places, including two temp agencies. Driving a good bit, too; planning on going to the DMV for my driving test in about 2 weeks.

CMT, as part of their ongoing "100 Greatest" series, have compiled a list of the 100 Greatest Music Videos (the country part is implied). #1, kinda-but-not-really-surprisingly, is Johnny Cash's "Hurt." But the entire list is interesting and definitely worth examining (you can view 30-second clips of most of the videos, too).

Janet Jackson's Damita Jo did not debut at #2 because of her "wardrobe malfunction," people. It debuted at #2 because its first single ("Just A Little While") was a radio dud (and, honestly, starts well and goes downhill) and its second ("I Want You") is a slow-burn record (which had damned well better turn into a multiformat hit, 'cause it deserves to). Her career will be just fine.

No ABBA reunion - ever. Which is a shame for those of us who never had the chance to hear those glorious Swedes sing harmony live.

What'd I tell ya? It's a matched set of titles at Connecticut. Storrs, CT, "center of the basketball universe" - who knew?

Superb article over at remembering that there was another Seattle musician who died on 4/5: Layne Staley, whom I miss a lot. Especially lately, as I've been listening to Boston's WBCN, which is like grunge never died: Alice In Chains, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, nearly every hour. [Not that there's anything wrong with that...]
