Weak Ends

The curse of domesticity is spending an entire weekend doing seemingly nothing and having it suddenly become Sunday night without your having accomplished anything. Well, hardly anything. There was rather a lovely meatloaf Saturday...

So in lieu of the deeper thoughts I'd intended to plumb, the gap is being plugged with a few odds and ends. First, in the post about Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs, I mentioned having voted but not being able to find my ballot. Well, I have, and find that I can plead only partially guilty to forming its consensus. Distressingly, neither of my top two songs -- "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," written by Ashford & Simpson but most notably recorded by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, and Leonard Cohen's sublime "Hallelujah" -- placed, but the next seven did make the list (though none at higher than 80). And the tenth tune, Anna McGarrigle's "Heart Like a Wheel," also got ignored. In case anyone wanted to know.

Also, I was chagrined to notice that my link to Jeff Chang's blog, Can't Stop Won't Stop, inexcusably added an "e" to his surname. It's been fixed. Apologies for the name change!

Mmm, meat loaf. I haven't had meat loaf in ... gosh, could it truly have been years? Mmm. Meat loaf.
