The Naming of Things

Most of this post will be the latest installment of New Music JKD Listens To, but first, some Other Business.

Namely - Chris Webber was traded to the 76ers for a sixth man, an eighth man, and a fifteenth man. I really and truly hope this works out for him, and the 76ers, but it won't; C-Webb is easily one of the most underachieving superstars in NBA history. His own numbers - and even, for several years, his team's performance - were and are very impressive. But last year, when Webber was injured for most of the year, was the best illustration of what kind of player Webber is - the kind that makes his teammates better. Than him.

The Kings were far better before Webber came back than after - and then, even after, were far better when he was off the floor. It's tough to see how this trade doesn't help the Kings - gives them anonymous, unselfish rebounding muscle and defense, and allows the rest of the team - Stojakovich, Bibby, Miller et. al. to play the sort of pressure-defense, up-tempo-offense game that suits them so well.

Marc Stein disagrees with me. But, well, I don't care.

Now to the real stuff:
ALSO: (via Salon) what Bob sez -
"I know there are groups at the top of the charts that are hailed as the saviours of rock'n'roll and all that, but they are amateurs. They don't know where the music comes from."
Listen to the man, kiddies. Kinda knows whereof what he speaks.
