Today’s ridiculous news story comes to us from the great city of New York, a place where your devoted Robot will be most of next week, on business. It seems that this gentleman has some issues.

Yes, I am trying some new shit out here. Bear with me…….
I’ve been picking through the most recent offerings from Cracker and The Bottle Rockets. The new Cracker album, called Countrysides, gets the early nod, more for the story behind the album than anything else. Generally, I’ve liked everything that Cracker has ever done. In [...]

I still can’t believe the words I am about to put down here, but they are true: Elliot Smith killed himself yesterday. I am not even sure how to describe how I feel about this, except that it hurts. I didn’t even feel this sad when Kurt Cobain committed suicide. Elliot Smith, to me, was [...]
