Random Notes from a Crank

This entire holiday season I did not once say, "Merry Christmas." Fuck you, FoxNews. 

On my way back from Iowa yesterday, I listened to the "E Street Shuffle" on E Street Radio. Springsteen fans voted on the top 100 Springsteen songs. I'm a fan of the "Boss," but it's always bothered me how in some of his songs he adopts a Southern drawl. He's from New Jersey for God's sake. 

If there were any American songwriter to win the Nobel, it should be Springsteen, not Bob Dylan. 

If you need a good piece of nonfiction to read, I highly recommend Sherman Alexie's You Don't Have to Say You Love Me. It's a fantastic book, people. 

Speaking of the Nobel Prize for Literature, why not Sherman Alexie?
