The Realism reviews are pouring in, folks! Here are two mostly well-written and wholly positive reviews here and here. The fact that no negative review has been posted here is not a sign of bias on my behalf, I swear it, it just so happens that everyone is liking the record. When the negative reviews start coming in, they'll be posted with as much sincerity in my vitriol.
Also, if any of you know of any professional reviews I'm missing or if you have written a review yourself, please feel free to hit me up in the comments or shoot me an e-mail.
Several websites are reporting that today is Stephin Merritt's birthday. And, that's great and all, but they're, um... wrong. According to Ms. Gail O'Hara, of Chickfactor and Stephin-documentary fame, Mr. Merritt's birthday isn't until February 9th. Read this for proof. The year is still a mystery to most of us, but that date seems pretty solid to me. Someone should really change that Wikipedia page.
