Have you ever really, really, really, really...

...used a thesaurus, Bryan Adams?*

Fans** will be excited to learn that Adams, or "Canada’s #1 ambassador"*** as his press agents call him, has a new record out today. It's called "11," because old musicians who are only moderately talented to start with easily forget how to be creative. He's on tour, and actually coming to Alpharetta, Ga., with (snicker snicker) Foreigner on July 20. You heard it here, and for that, I'm sorry.

Those of us who hate Bryan Adams are much more excited that today is the release date for the new Old 97's record, after a 42-year hiatus****. The album is called "Blame It On Gravity" — see Bryan, not that hard — and the couple of tracks I've heard sound great. Crunchy guitar. High lonesome warble. The whole package. Can't wait to hear the whole thing.

* Thanks Jenn. This is a mod of her joke.
** Assuming they still number in the plural.
*** Behind Avril Lavigne, Keanu Reeves, William Shatner, Neil Young, most of The Band, Sarah McLachlan, Jim Carrey, Rush and anyone else over here, right?
**** OK, OK. Four years.

It's a sad state of affairs when Foreigner is the hot (or is that hot-blooded?) item on the ticket.

Ugh. If you say so.
