What a week, eh, shruggers? Storming from Stockholm to New York to California, it's been one triumph after another.
So it's an inspired choice on tonight's open music thread to run The Replacements "Kiss Me on the Bus" in celebration of our ads finally making it up on buses in California and trains in New York today. The song is also a tribute to my well-lived youth. The Replacements were part of the running soundtrack of my young life -- Paul Westerberg, The Smiths, Morrissey, The Ramones, Patti Smith, Madness, Costello, et al -- shake my tailfeather music. How warm the world was ............. and free. Really free.
