I don’t believe in sucking your way to the top either, Jenny (see: “My Pet Snake), but so often, too often, in life it’s not who you know and what you do, but who you do & what you know. Tis life, I s’pose. I guess if I was a less romantic man with lower scruples, I’d have pimped out Baby to Pitchfork for the hits, eh?

SIDE NOTE: Wonder how many of their writers at a concert full of cutie-pie hipster girls uses the line, “I write for Pitchfork” when trying to score?

No worries, we are not becoming a Pitchfork besmirching site, too easy a target. I mean, look…

See? C’mon people! We don’t need to sink to that!!

No, we are talking about love, dammit! LOVE!


Like two birds whistling a tune together, like an old man and woman holding hands as they walk through a park reminding the younger couple passing in the opposite direction, not yet holding hands, what it’s all about, resulting in them holding hands, or like two male chimpanzees going at each other’s buttholes like their competing for a 10 foot banana…


What is love?
Baby don’t hurt me…
And what’s love got to do with it?

Everything, man, everything… It’s the reason for the season. Without it, us humans would’ve been extinct ages ago because, as much as we love doin’ it, we seem to really really really love killing each other even more.

Love has inspired some of the best & worst songs in all of history, but (ir)regardless, I’m still a sucker for a couple in lurrrve making musics together. So yeah, I’m all over this I’m Having Fun Now by Jenny And Johnny album!

Musically, it reminds me more of the AM radio stylings of the Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs albums of recent years, just got that classic laid-back rock with a hint of alt-country vibe. Yeah, it’s not the most original stuff in the world, but they are “having fun now” and it shows. Perfect to just load up while doing a bit of arts & crafts around the house (like we did last night).

Yeah, so, just checked… these love birds are major label?  Who knew?  So yeah, no mp3s here, uh-uh, no way.  So, go through all the BS below to hear some stuff, whether it’s the NPR leak stream, or the silly mp3 widgets, whatever!

    I listened to the first few tracks on the NPR stream and it’s not bad. Kinda reminds me of Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson’s “Break Up” from last year. Both are a bit generic but pleasant (although, at this point, I prefer “Break Up” because it has more of an alt-country Dusty Springfield-esque tone).

    It’s a nice album to have going on in the background, just push play + repeat and go do what you gotta do! Add in the love birds and I was in!
