Thanks for calling Michael!

  1. Wow. Is HVB going into hiding now?

    I am shocked and stunned that anyone would have anything negative to say about Michael Stipe. Shocked. And stunned.

  3. Holy cow, he really seems to have a bee in his bonnet.

    “Tube Bar” reference. I have never heard any of those recordings and haven’t thought about them since the advent of the internets. Now my Friday night is set.

  9. Sammy, after you check out the Tube Bar, head over here:

    Just wanted everybody to know that Michael and I sat down for a chai over the weekend, and everything’s cool. It’s funny — he had no idea I was so tight with the producers of “Project Runway.” For my part, I was more than a little surprised with his appreciation for the Bon Scott-era AC/DC catalog. Turns out REM almost included a cover of “What’s Next To the Moon” on “Monster.” I told him that would’ve been cool, and he nodded, sipping quietly.
