I hanker for a hunka links (or at least 4, anyway)


Fans of Neko Case - or fans of things that are entertaining in general - will want to check out the July 11th edition of NPR's news quiz show Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me, as she was the guest for the show's "Not My Job" segment. She was cute and charming and incredibly funny, and as a result my already planet-sized crush on her has grown exponentially.

Plus, you learn more than you'd ever want to know about America's greatest punishment candy, the NECCO wafer. So there's that.




Continuing along with the "female musicians that make Bill swoon" theme, Juliana Hatfield is once again offering a bunch of songs available for honor system download on her website.

And you can download songs from her Daytrotter.com session here. Haven't gotten a chance to listen to much of this yet, but her cover of the Stones' "It's Only Rock 'n Roll" is an interesting take on a very familiar song. Check it out.



Christopher Doyle over at ReasonablyClever.com thought it was a good use of time and money to make full scale Lego replicas of Crow and Tom Servo from Mystery Science Theater 3000.



I'm inclined to agree with him.




In case you forgot, or just doubted that it would ever actually happen, The State finally came out on DVD this week. Like, for real. Our long national nightmare is at last over (though I wonder how some sketches are going to play now that the music has been changed... the "Pants" sketch, for instance, made excellent use of the Breeders' "Cannonball," enough so that I can't think of the bit without thinking of the song.).
