The best 99 cents you'll spend this year

A few weeks ago my friend nodressrehersal gave me a CD called "Kensington Heights" by a band called The Constantines. I had never heard of the CD or the band.

Since then I have not taken the CD out of the player in my truck, and it's still sounding better each time I play it. Here's how you can find out just how good this music is:

1. Go to your favorite music download store and buy the song "Brother Run Them Down" from the CD.
2. Head onto the highway and begin playing the song once you reach the speed limit.
3. Do not look at the speedometer until the song is over. When you do, you'll see you're doing at least 85 mph.

I can't believe there are no listener reviews for this disc on Amazon.

I'm fretfully behind (if one can indeed get fretful about lj) (which obviously one can, because one just did) on my reading, so pardon the late response.

Yay! I'm glad you're lovin' the disc! Now go write that review on Amazon before you dot another i, Bob Cratchett.

"Fretfully" sted "frightfully": great wordplay.
