I’ve written a number of times about Jeff Tweedy and Jay Farrar, usually as a reference point in other posts about Wilco or Uncle Tupelo or Golden Smog or Tweedy’s overall impact on my life. In any case, their relationship, or lack thereof, fascinates me.
Which is why I treasure this YouTube clip I just stumbled upon. I didn’t see this linked anywhere else (shame on you, Paste and Stereogum), but it’s from January and has 20,000 views, so I’m not exactly breaking news. Anyway, take a listen to Tweedy talking about running into Jay on vacation in Mexico.

Perry and I had similar thoughts this afternoon, while Pax is too busy emailing pictures of himself to himself on his iPhone.
I thought this a good time to share with you all that, if you haven’t heard, Wilco is the musical guest on Saturday Night Live (hosted by Ellen Page) this week. Wilco and Juno…someone at SNL knows what’s up.
Tweedy would be proud of my beard
To the songs:
Lover, You Should’ve Come Over, Jeff Buckley. A top-10 all-time song for the Padre.
Shiver, Coldplay. Some of their stuff from their first two albums is cool, regardless of what your hipster friends tell you.
Heart of the City, Jay-Z. Whenever I’m on the highway, I wish I had multiple passengers so I could drive in the HOV lane.
We Major, Kanye West w/ Nas. Too long, but the “feeling better than some head on a Sunday afternoon” line is worth it.
A Punchup at the Wedding, Radiohead. Forgot that I actually liked this song…disappointing album though.
Roll with It, Oasis. Sorry ladies, Liam’s taken.
Make Me Better, Fabolous. As mentioned in my best of 2007.
Conquest, The White Stripes. Cooooo-oooooooooo-oooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnn-queeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeest.
Neighborhood #3 (Power Out), Arcade Fire. Unquestionably my favorite AF song.
I Could Die For You, Red Hot Chili Peppers. From By the Way, probably one of my top-5 all-time most-listened-to albums, only because freshman year it was the only thing that everyone on my floor liked.
