I was paid today, but I won't have any actual money until the NEXT paycheck, which is the third of the month (so it's theoretically extra), plus it'll have a bunch of overtime hours on it. When it comes, though, I think I will set aside some of it to have the Kitten on the Porch fixed and given shots. He's starting to tomcat around and I feel I ought to be responsible, even if I don't technically own him. Especially when he showed up with a big ol' scab on his back that obviously hurts, since he won't let me touch it, and this morning after I gave him breakfast I went out and found him cowering under the table whilst Big Orange ate his food. Big Orange ran off.

I couldn't find the picture where Nagin REALLY looked like Rickman. It was in the NY Times a few days ago.

I have a stack of reviews to do about ninety miles high. Billy Joe Shaver, the Highwaymen, and Roy Rogers are due next Friday; then two Rosanne Cash discs; then Curt Kirkwood, Bobby Bare's new one, and Cross Canadian Ragweed. The latter is yet another that's got stupid anti-piracy stuff on it which makes me unable to listen to it at work. Well, just means I don't really give it the listening it deserves, 'cause that's where I do my best listening.

I'm trying to get that final draft done, but I'm only getting a few pages done a night. A lot of Della's scenes are for some reason coming out almost totally re-written (I know my heroine, but she's hard to bring across; several people have noted it. Muse, muse).

I have to work more overtime tomorrow. Lord, I'm tired.

Wow! They have the same mouth, don't they?

Happy reviewing. What are the Rosanne Cash discs? Reissues?

Like I said, there was a picture in the Times a couple days ago that REALLY showed a resemblance. I wish I could have found that one.

The Very Best of Rosanne Cash and the re-issue of Interiors; they're doing a whole package of re-issues including also Seven Year Ache and King's Record Shop; I only got the first two rather than volunteering for all four. :)

Are they doing that thing where they add extra songs, so now I'll have to go buy them all over again?

It looks like they might have a few; I'm not familiar enough with Rosanne's work (sadly) to say what's been available before and what's new. The new re-issue of the Highwaymen - the Road Goes On Forever DOES have a bunch of bonus tracks, although I'd wait on buying it until the Limited Edition CD/DVD comes out a month later (boy, is it hard to review it without saying that... maybe I should say it).

Ooooh, that's one I'll definitely be buying.

Did you see in the NYT today that there's a video of them that CMT's going to premiere, I think this weekend?

No, I missed that article. I suppose that means I'll have to watch CMT... :)

I love the bonus tracks. Most of them were recorded live somewhere--very much worth it to hear Waylon's "I Ain't Song." Hee!

Dusty needs a home. He loves people and wants to be inside.
