Today? Blood and Chocolate. But that's because it's what's in the stereo.

: 5. least favorite elvis costello album?
Goodbye Cruel World

: 6. favorite elvis costello line?
At the moment,
"Please don't let me fear anything I cannot explain,
I can't believe I'll never believe in anything again."

: 7. Have you seen him live? Was he good?
Twice, and I'm going again next month. In my opinion, he was best with the impostors; since then, I've seen him with Steve Nieve, and the show next month is with the Brodsky Quartet. While all the shows were good, the show with the Impostors in Central Park was... well, it was fucking fantastic.

: 8. do you wish to see him live?
Constantly. :-)

: 9. What song would you love to see Costello cover?
Uh... uh... I never really thought about it. I'd rather see him do his own stuff.

: 10. What Costello song would you like to see another artist cover? (name band and song)
I'd like to see the Smithereens cover "Town Where Time Stood Still," I think it fits them perfectly.
