One picture is worth 1,000 words
That's right, folks, Jenny Lewis and boyfriend Jonathan Rice are cooking up an album together. Can't wait to hear it. And Rilo Kiley is putting together an album of B sides and rarities. Yummy!

I get a lot of messages from people who feel the need to emphasize that they liked me "before Juno". I get a lot of people insulting the fans who only heard of me from Juno. And I get a surprisingly large amount of people asking me if it annoys me that there are all these new "fake fans" because of Juno. I decided to respond to this issue, as I respond to most issues, in musical form. Here's the live debut of "Check Your Snob at The Door" by my soft-rap persona Rerun Rainbowmagnets Steinway...

When the Station Agent posts the song "Alameda" by Elliot Smith, I always feel inspired to post a picture of The City, as they call it in Northern California, from Alameda.
I long for The City.

When the Beatles went to Hrishikesh, India, John Lennon believed a rumor that the guru Maharishi had made advances to a young woman at his ashrama. Whether or not this was true, Lennon--always looking for "the answer"--left India in disgust, and wrote this song. Sadie is Maharishi.
Doesn't seem very sexy to me.

Conover is an ideal match as interviewer because he too spent a year in the prison system as a writer who goes undercover as a CO at New York's Sing Sing prison, resulting in Conover's 2000 classic Newjack: Guarding Sing Sing.

I wonder how the party of no will play their hand in the impending SCOTUS appointment. Senator Leahy thinks they will make fools of themselves.

Safer than alcohol? Moms For Marijuana say it is. That's their first point--the world would be a better place if people took more ganja and less alcohol. If you do not agree with this it must be because you have not studied the issue, or you have an unreasonable cultural prejudice that is blinding you to the truth. Would you really rather share the road with drunkards instead of stoners? I think not.
The Walrus Speaks never recommends the use of any mind altering substance, but we just have to speak out against the legal suppression of something that could help today's world.

Happy Mother's Day.

My question for the Station Agent is, which one of these contestants should move on to the next round of the never ending Walrus Talent Contest?
That's KTWS Radio--www.thewalrusspeaks.blogspot.com on your cyber radio dial.
Seriously, friends, is this the face of modern American conservatism? Joe the Plumber? The dude won some sort of minor election in Ohio. Here's an excerpt from AP.
He drew cheers at a tea party rally last month in Cincinnati when he told the crowd not to let "a bunch of liberal pansies" take away their rights.
"Illegal immigration?" he said. "Put a fence up and start shooting."
Wurzelbacher has never been shy about sharing his views even if they open him up to critics.
He told Christianity Today in an interview last year that he believes gays are "queer" and said he won't allow them near his children.Read the article.

By the way something, George Will might be interested in the fact that in the wake of Sulley's heroic ditch in the Hudson, airports have developed technology to avert birdstrike and that technology seems like it would be adaptable to wind farms.
Speaking of birdstrike, here's Eddie Izzard's classic 1996 bit on the subject:

Hu Jintao, President of the People's Republic of China
PARIS (AFP) – Media watchdog Reporters Without Borders named Monday the world's 40 worst "predators of the press" including politicians, religious leaders and militias to mark World Press Freedom Day.
