"You know that new Cure album? It sucks. You know how I know? ‘Cause I’m a Doors fan." — Bruce McCulloch, Shame Based Man. Actually, given Robert Smith’s confessions to East Bay Express, it might not suck as hard as expected. The man appears to be at least trying to make a decent record. Here’s to his Quixotic quest.

Google: Helpful online resource or KGB spying machine? I know, I know — the KGB no longer exists. But that’s not what Microsoft thinks, at least according to this article in SF Weekly.
