What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Not Ready to Make Nice / Dixie Chicks
Not Ready to Make Nice I don't often have a reason to get political here; when the mood takes me I have my other blog for that. And it's almost as rare when I have something positive to say about country music. Not that I have anything against the music, its performers or fans; it's just not my thing. But I have to give credit to the Dixie Chicks. Not just for their music, or for having the courage to stand up and say what even diehard conservatives are finally admitting about the President, back at a point that people were using words like traitor to anybody who dared question him. Especially country music fans, who as a group don't have the most liberal reputation.

Anyway, I'm enjoying the Chicks' new release, both as a song and as a response to those who, even if they're willing to forgive and forget, haven't yet figured out that the Chicks aren't the one who should be seeking forgiveness. Not very Christian to avoid turning the other check, I suppose. Then again, I'm not very Christian either.
