    The Examiner, which now comes out every 2 weeks, has better crossword puzzles than the Express ever had. With the Express folding and the recent change of the Epoch Times from free to pay for home delivery, I will have to find something else to do while at Starbucks.

    Much like people hate Boston and deride them as "corporate rock", I never understood the appeal of the Cars. They're OK, I guess. Usually get a dial flip from me.

    IIRC, he made his biggest impact as a producer. The Cars were ok, IMO, but that's about it.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I am hearing a lot of us youngins saying the same. People that were around and remember their start are singing a different tune. They were on the cutting edge of combining rock and new wave in the late 70's.

    The Cars and Rick Ocasek was fantastic. The idea that they were "corporate" is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. They were New Wave pioneers. By definition, corporate is never pioneering, it's rehash of a safe, anodyne formula.

    There is so little music that is both interesting and accessible. Just because everybody knows something doesn't mean it's wrong.

    The first Boston album is great. After it became the perfectionist Tom Scholz Show, they sucked.
