This is a kind of public service announcement to let y’all know that a certain resident troll, who had a special place in my heart but who I know was rather unpleasant to be around, has finally lost his privileges as an “Honored Guest” of the Salon. I’m announcing it because I imagine it will bring some relief to those of you who endured the brunt of his misanthropy for any amount of time, but also to let you know that it takes a lot for me to “unfriend” someone, and even more for me to ban someone from commenting. What finally pushed me over the edge was a combination of his persistent harassing of my other friends and getting eerily possessive of my own attention and affections. So, like, don’t do that. Not that I have to tell any of you.
In other news, I love the new releases by Jennifer O’Connor and Yo La Tengo.
