17 out of 22 on the grammar test
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:21am G:

22/22, but I guessed what they wanted on two of the that/which items. I never bought the recently made-up that/which distinction -- many, many authors do not follow it.
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:28am duke:

20/22 - that/which has always thrown me
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:28am Roberto:

Mmmmm Muffs yum yum
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:35am Roberto:

Ooh a grammar test -- I be good at that stuffs. Imma take it now. Results posted soon...
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:35am G:

You go, girl :-)
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:36am duke:

@MS why be you questioning ours scores? We is grammar stars.
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:39am tomB:

was it a bluebird or blue jay? Blue jays can be pretty aggressive
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:39am Peter:

Good job with the bird. As a rule, if a bird appears weak/injured, it is frequently attacked by other birds, even its own nest-mates.

It's because a wounded/sick bird will attract predators.
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:39am ChooChoo - ATL:

Was the "Bluebird" a "Blue Jay"? Jays are pretty aggressive. -- I've seen a Mockingbird kill another bird in the same manner you described.
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:39am Roberto:

  Sat. 6/23/12 11:39am Greg/Brooklyn:

Sure it was a Bluebird? Sounds more like a Blue Jay. They are aggressive... Chasing down other birds and even cats!
Shelly to the rescue... Nice
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:40am G:

That $5999.99 Beach Boys offer is way past the point where completism shades over into commitable OCD.
Avatar Sat. 6/23/12 11:41am Michael:

It was a blue bird - probably a Jay. Do any birds eat birds?
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:41am mrmucho:

hawks eat other birds
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:42am G:

birds of prey, yeah
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:42am Peter:

Peregrin falcons, etc. eat birds all the time. Pigeons are feathery candy to them.
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:42am Peter:

Oops *peregrine.
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:44am Bob:

Michael, you may have convinced me to get a Beach Boys ticket next week in Detroit. I too have been on the fence. Tickets here can be had for as low as $16 too.

Cool to hear that last tune. I only knew it from the Skeeter Davis & NRBQ version.
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:46am tomB:

hawks kill and eat birds. Crows might, and jays are related. More likely, the jay was merely trying to kill the bird, with no intent of eating it.
PS: Bluebirds are there own species and great insect eaters. Not as common as 100 yrs ago. It would be worth a google.
Avatar Sat. 6/23/12 11:48am Michael:

Why kill a bird and not eat it?
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:48am Andy:

The bird attack sounded more like defense. My guess is that if the smaller bird was a wren or sparrow, it was probably attacking the bluebird's egg and/or nest. A predator would've flown away. Mothers stick around til the end.
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:49am PB:

Just tuned in and see that you played Do It Again. Always loved that song, particularly the really cool drum sound they got on that track.
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:51am PB:

Speaking of peregrine falcons didn't Donovan do a (quite good) song with that title.
Avatar Sat. 6/23/12 11:52am Michael:

PB - I'm pretty sure they did NOT get that sound on the track. What makes you say different?
  Sat. 6/23/12 11:55am PB:

I didn't hear the early version that you played so I'm not sure. The 45 RPM version that I have has a really cool drum sound, particularly in the intro. Kind of like a "fuzzed out" sound, for lack of a better description.
Avatar Sat. 6/23/12 11:56am Michael:

Indeed - but it was added as an overdub - I'm pretty sure - not that it, it is still cool
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:01pm ChooChoo - ATL:

I think the bird thing was about territory.
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:03pm seang:

damn that was a good song. I didn't know he wrote a song for the Georgia Satellites.
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:08pm Andy in Berlin:

all sounds great but where's the World's Greatest Music Experts? I miss them!
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:10pm G:

He has them in a broom closet?
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:11pm Sluggo:

Hey, my Gramma did great on the test and she's 91!
Avatar Sat. 6/23/12 12:12pm Michael:

They're impossible to schedule - but I'm working on it
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:12pm Andy in Berlin:

can't wait
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:12pm G:

The old "herding cats" problem
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:15pm PB:

Growing up in Toronto I heard a lot of Teenage Head (Canadian content rules and all) but they were a really good band.
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:16pm Myron Feld:

Michael, i have this 45 (Picture My Face) and saw them @ Max's -- GREAT song!
Avatar Sat. 6/23/12 12:17pm Michael:

at Max's you have to pay & no seats for guys with fat asses!
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:22pm G:

Does Mark Newgarden actually live in a converted funeral parlor in W'burg Brooklyn (so says wikipedia)?
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:32pm ChooChoo - ATL:

Barker Brother, The, "Nancy". I can hear this in the Ska style.
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:36pm Duane:

I hear Mark is working on the definitive Nancy book - an expansion of his important essay "How to Read Nancy."
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:38pm frenchee:

I love the Nancy interview! Also, 20 out of 22 on the grammah
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:39pm frenchee:

Fantagraphics is fantastic
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:41pm Duane:

Newgarden is brilliant, as was Bushmiller. Smart of Fantagraphics to enlist him in this project.
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:42pm Duane:

Thanks for this interview, Michael! Thoroughly enjoyable!
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:45pm Sonny Rickles:

Mike, please ask Scott Schinder what's happening with his Pushin Too Hard book.
Us investors gots to know!
  Sat. 6/23/12 12:55pm Scott:

Hey Sonny, spending the morning transcribing some Pushin Too Hard interviews. I love this music, but hate transcribing....
  Sat. 6/23/12 2:30pm Dan:

Thanks so much for playing 'College Girls'! and Candy Butchers, the magnificent Muffs, and that Romantics version! Nice nice nice.
