Look, we can do it too! This week's show has us listening to two very different releases... the new album from rock band 9mm Parabellum Bullet and the most recent single from piano-pop singer/songwriter Angela Aki. We also have new AA picks this week, so be sure to vote on your favorite!

The uStream was a friendly place as usual, and it's someplace you should be as often as possible. We record at about 7:30, 7:45-ish or thereabouts (Eastern time) on Wednesday nights. Join us, listen to the hosts record the show, listen to us mess up, give us your input, make dirty jokes, and just overall have an awesome time.

Now for notes!
