A couple of thoughts:

Yo La Tengo will be playing in Madison @ Barrymore Theatre, Jan 23, 2010, 8pm. Tickets available via True Endeavors or The Barrymore.

Combination Pizza Hut And Taco Bell was just too weird of an internet meme to not include. Consider this Pitchfork Review of this song. Also worth considering, this Overcompensating Comic about this song. Then again, maybe that’s just too obscure.

I was sad to see Flight Of The Conchords get canceled, but the series probably had run its course. I would have preferred to play Too Many Dicks (On The Dancefloor), but that’s probably not FCC-friendly. I loved seeing these guys live, since I doubt I’ll get the chance again anytime soon.

Beck’s version of Sunday Morning by The Velvet Underground was one of the highlights of his Record Club project for me. Basically, he and his friends got together to play covers of famous songs by The Velvet Underground, Leonard Cohen, and Skip Spence. By his friends, I mean Jeff Tweedy, Leslie Feist, and Devendra Banhart. Project is ongoing at Beck’s website.

Don’t forget to listen to the rest of the WSUM Morning Zoo for their Best of 2009 shows the rest of this week, 6-8am on WSUM 91.7 FM (streaming online at

This will be my last time plugging the Madison A.V. Club article on WSUM Morning Zoo Best of 2009 Shows.
