I was at the Bar Harbor Book Festival this weekend (more on that later!), and so didn’t have time to write a longer blog post. I wanted to share two quick things I heard on the radio on my drive in to work this morning.
First Weezer’s new song “(If You’re Asking if I Want You To) I Want You To” is so good! I can’t find a legal video, so no linkage, but trust me, it is good. The DJ mentioned that Rainn Wilson (from The Office) interviewed Rivers Cuomo on his webiste, SoulPancake. I haven’t had a chance to watch the interview yet, but it’s on my to do list. And you can watch them singing Joan Osborne’s “One of Us”, which is quite good (even if it takes a little while to get going).
Second, one of the local stations interviewed Adam Lambert, and they talked about him being gay without ever using the word gay — or any synonym. It was odd. They asked him some pretty awkward questions, but he responded with grace and enthusiasm.
