Megan’s post about Lindsay’s high fashion for little money reminds me that I’ve forgotten to congratulate Darcy for earning a well-deserved Juno nomination for Infernal Machines even if he was robbed in the final vote. Since he and Lindsay are among the oldest friends of the blog you may not take my word for how terrific the album is, so instead take the word of such obscure sources as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Village Voice, Downbeat, and Newsweek.

As I fool around with iTunes to facilitate best-of-decade lists that may or may not appear on this blog before the end of this decade, I’ll also note that despite the snub of Infernal Machines there’s plenty of stuff I love in Fred Kaplan’s best of year and decade lists (I’ll give especially strong uninformed recommendations to Sound Grammar, Road Shows Vol. 1, Sky Blue, Footprints Live, and For All I Care.) While I’m plugging CanCon also let me say I’ve derived considerable pleasure from Parkdale and Amor De Cosmos.

And finally, I’m not sure if even he is willing to bet against the Yankees this year, but since I’ve only thanked him privately I’d like to belatedly thank Howard for sending me Never No Lament, Tone Dialing, and Speak No Evil last year; uniformly great stuff.
