WashCycle, I love your blog but still think this race terminology you're using for links is really esoteric... it confuses me and distracts from the subject matter.

And, on another note... what's a DVD? (kidding...)

Used to live right across the street from the REM trestle for 2 years. We'd climb up to the top from time to time and hang out.


Before that, I lived next door to the remnants of the church where they played their first concert. Moved from one REM landmark to another. :)

ScottF, I'm fine with that. I agree with Tyler Cowen that sometimes a blog should be hard to read. That one should not hyperlink every concept and there should be elements that not everyone understands. It keeps the riff-raff out.

But then sometimes I do want things to be easy. So, just treat the "weird French stuff" as bullets.

Actually, the term "album" can also be used in a more general sense, as a collection of songs intended to form one work. So "album" can include a record album, a cassette tape, a DVD, an SACD, DVD-Audio and even an old 8-track cassette. But yeah, I know not everyone uses the word "album" in the larger sense. Just me nitpicking.

The movie "Race Across the Sky" documented the 2009 Leadville 100 mtn. bike race. That was pretty crazy, especially toward the end. (No spoilers from me.) I recommend the movie for any endurance sports fans-especially bike fans- and for anyone who enjoys seeing grand vistas like the Rocky Mountains.

Steve - I'm envious of your R.E.M. landmark living! ;-)

On a related note, perhaps the thoughtful, progressive, environmentally and socially councious, not to mention rather rich, members of R.E.M. could donate some $ to help save the trestle, or at least play benefit concert to help preserve the bridge. Just a thought for R.E.M. and/or their publicist if they're reading...

Albums were originally books that looked a bit like photo albums, except that instead of keeping photos in transparent sleeves, you had paper sleeves that contained vinyl records. Typically about 6, each of which had one song on each side played at 78 RPM. When technology improved enough to put 12 songs on one vinyl disk (to be played at 33-1/3 RPM, they just kept calling them albums, as far as I know.
