Of Equipment and Bejeweled Jelly

This past week I picked up the new albums from two of my three favorite bands of all time.

-The first is my 15th album, counting singles and b-sides, from a band I discovered in my junior year of high school. Erick Howard once walked to Homer's Music during lunch near the end of my senior year to get me and him tickets to see the band in Kansas City. 16 years after 10 and this band is still amazing.

-The second is the first album from the band in five years, though I would have waited ten thousand days more just to hear it.

-The third band will never release another album. Or, rather, they *should* never release another album, though Courtney Love will certainly try. For Frances' sake, let it rest.
