A track by the Who I'd never heard before! A thousand thank yous!

Do you have the Levi's commercials that Jefferson Airplane did?

No but there's a guy on p2p who does, but I forget his name.

They're on a 2-cd greatest-whatever anthology, but I forget its name. 2400 Fulton Street, maybe? I'll look for 'em on p2p when I get home today. And thanks--I love this kind of stuff.

The Shangri-La's one is especially cool/weird.

"In return, it will flatter his masculine ego."

And, because here's as good a place as any, here's a rigatoni recipe from Steve Albini (via):

Boil water. Salt it. Add rigatoni. while it is boiling, sautee some onions and apples (apples in 1/2-inch pieces cubes) in olive oil. Season (salt and pepper, maybe some thyme) everything. If you have some, throw in some bacon or pancetta cut in little cubes. When the apples are starting to brown a little bit, throw in a bunch of chopped garlic. If you have some, throw in a mess of diced celery.

Just before the pasta is al dente (it should still be firm at this stage), drain it and dump it into the skillet with the stuff, along with some of the pasta water. Toss to mix and continue cooking until the pasta is nicely al dente. Just before service, crumble a bunch of gorgonzola into the skillet and toss until it is somewhat melted and coats the pasta a little bit.

Serve with fresh herbs chopped fine as a topside garnish. I like mint and parsley together.

When rock stars speak up, I listen. Then do the opposite.

Damn, that sounds good. I am totally trying that with Granny Smith apples -- their tartness should offset the gorgonzola and thyme nicely.

Hey! Where is Linda Ronstadt speaking up for the Plow King? That's what I want on my iPod.
