firstly, cute pups. secondly, you are correct re: my love for everything up to and including a ghost is born. thirdly, my ears, and they're bad, mind you, dont hear any likeness tween the two, summerteeth and the whole love. sure, "i might" is definitely summerteeth-esque but the rest of it, i just dont hear, but again thats just me. i actually love that people are still loving wilco and will never put down or question why they do, but for me they just aint cuttin it any more. the last three records are fine records, but not wilco "fine," imo. there are glimpses of the wilco i love but they have been too few and too far in between. re: art-rock, or whatever you, general, want to call it. nels' whole background is knee deep in said genre and it definitely crosses over. i am just not a fan and my tagging my post with profanities pertaining to mr cline was a joke. as everything i do on my site is actually for my own amusement. if people like it, awesome, if they dont, i dont care. they can go to stereogum... in the end, i still love em, their first 4 played and continue to play a significant part in my life.
