I love love love listening to Ken Tucker's review of Bob Dylan's Christmas album for this line: "And Dylan does make his slow, deliberate version of 'I'll Be Home For Christmas' sound more like a threat than a promise." Dylan's voice has always grated for me, but it's worth hearing snippets of the songs in this fascinating defense of an album it seems many have disliked.
Amusing book reviews by rachelmanija I enjoyed recently:
Anne Bishop: A Daughter of the Blood, aka "the magic cock ring book." I once read a one-shot set in that world while wasting time at a friend's house. It didn't totally suck, but it was stupid. Especially when it tried so hard to be depraved and awful--I laughed and laughed then.
Timeshadow Rider, by Ann Maxwell, "space opera from the id." XD;
