Oh Dear

What do you say when your best friend has an ugly baby? What do you say when your favorite singer/songwriter has an ugly album cover? Thankfully, I've never had to deal with the first dilemma (my friends and their spouses churn out deliciously gorgeous babies); but, as for the second, well, take a look at this:

WE HAVE A COVER: Thx to brilliant (& brave) graffiti artist i... on Twitpic

I'm sure, sure, sure that she is making some kind of statement here. In fact, I can pretty much imagine what that statement is supposed to be. And I am just as certain that the album's inside will be beyond belief beautiful. But, I hate graffiti, and I refuse to bow to the gods of the age that say that vandalism is a valid form of artstic expression.

What do you think?

By the way, the four-week countdown to this album's release begins TODAY! C'mon October 20!

Maybe, Just Maybe . . .

I see where Carolyn will be playing in Appleton, WI and Green Bay, WI on 4-5 Dec 2009. My wife and I travelled to Appleton for a wedding shower this summer - it's a nice little town. Might have to try to make this one . . .
