I can't get anything done today. I just keep hitting "replay" on Accidntel Death (why can't they spell??).

The sound is catchy, the words are good, and man . . . she catches that feeling of sudden, gutwrenching regret.

Great song.

In severe danger of sounding like a total geek here (what's new?!) but I have a sneaky suspicion about the spelling - see, Jimmy Tamborello from the Postal Service produced/knob twiddles on a lot of the songs (plus Jenny Lewis has done work with them and is a sometimes creditted band member), and one o Jimmy's other projects was DNTEL, thus accidntel deth...
Or at least, that's my theory, I may be completely wrong.

And half the album's lovely (that song included), but then it starts wandering over into Ally McBeal soundtrack territory...
#Aaaaaaaaaaaaahm oooohhhnly a woooooooohmaaan# etc.
It upset me.

Muffy - ha ha!! I hadn't noticed the Dntel connection - but I saw it and thought of it, so I guess I am not that uncool after all.

I agree with the Ally McBeal stuff, but there are some major winners on this album, too.

I like them a lot. Some of her lyrics are annoying, but I thought More Adventurous was a damn fine album.

I actually started listening to them because, come one, Blake was Joey the rat...

But I really love Jenny's voice, and the new album. Even "I Never" and "Does He Love You?" which some of my friends hate..

I just have trouble listening to her, knowing that she was in The Wizard...(even though maybe I kinda liked that movie)

Was she? My life has come full circle - back when I was 10, I WAS the Wizard.

My world is completely rocked.

Blake was Joey the Rat?!?!

Jenny was the chick from The Wizard?!?!

It's like all of my favorite things from when I was 12 are now my favorite thing at 25.

So, Spencer, did you know that your Avatar is in some restricted area of ingenuitous.com, so that every time I visit a page with one of your posts I get asked to log in?

That doesn't seem like a good idea to me, but I'm pretty new here.  Maybe this should be a private message, but I've never got that to work quite right.
