- Jeff over at Jefitoblog continues to celebrate all things “Power Ballad” with entries from Kix, Warrant and Chicago. I still contend that “Look Away” has the greater wuss rock factor of the two.

- Stereogum shares the news that Nels Cline has the Chicken Pox.
- Kevin at So Much Silence shares the wonderful word that Jeremy Enigk (formerly of Sunny Day Real Estate) is releasing another record and not waiting 10 years this time!
- MOKB shares the brilliance of Petra Haden’s “Don’t Stop Believing”
- Heather deals with server issues and introduces us to the poetry of Luke Doucet.
