New Moz album

True to You, Morrissey's mouthpiece to the outside world (run by the super-fan Julia Riley) announces that a new album, entitled Years of Refusal, will be released in September. Also, a remastered version of Southpaw Grammar will be released in July, with 3 unreleased bonus tracks (probably just live).

Just checking in

Yes, I am still alive. The last few weeks have been hectic. I finished the revisions to a chapter on Feist for a book that will appear in 2009. I presented a new paper at the IASPM Canada conference at Brock. And my wife, father and I went to Winnipeg, signed papers and got possession of the house. There might be a bit of work at the house - nothing major, really - although the large yard needs some work.

So, in short (too late), I'm still alive, trying to clean things up here in Montreal to get ready for a move in 3 weeks.

By the way, while in Ottawa, I was able to secure myself a fully working iMac DV SE (graphite) for $5. Retail in 1999, $1499 USD.
