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

A Little Bit Special / Stephen Lynch
I was flipping through the channels one Sunday night. (I almost said "flipping the dial", but let's face it: when was the last time you saw a TV with a dial? Not even at Motel 6.) Nothing much appealed, although I'd stop for a few minutes on Comedy Central before continuing my desperate search for entertainment. Comedy Central were running a show they called their Stand Up Shootout. And the comedians were pretty funny, although not funny enough to keep me from continuing to scan.

And then a funny thing happened. On one pass, I saw this guy with a guitar and a fairy tale background. And he was singing. Singing well. But these really twisted songs. Like the one about his girlfriend with the extra equipment. The thirty seconds of Herm Aphrodite on the iTMS will tell you whether Stephen Lynch is your cup of tea. But before you go, take a moment to hear Jim Henson's Dead. Because for at least this one track, Lynch is using his powers for good. Not that there's anything wrong with using them for evil.
