    • The Life Pursuit is a sort of Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. You get Belle & Sebastian's peanut butter (its wistful, often irresistible pop) dipped in a 'Have A Nice Day!' and glam 70s chocol

    • Dropping like a bomb on some of the blah musical offerings of her contemporaries, Haunted was one of the best albums of 2000, obliterating the competition.

They have reordered TV episodes and podcasts. New used to be at the top so you don’t have to scroll down for the latest. Now, new is at the bottom. Imagine you have a 2 year archive of a weekday podcast with 3 1-hour episodes per day (yes, I am a Jim Rome addict). Minor fail on Apple’s part…

They’ve also screwed up song ordering for podcast sourced dynamic playists on iPod Touch. I get the sense that the guy or gal who kept it all together with playlist ordering moved on to something else recently.
