    By the way, I forgot to mention, after our long holiday break, we’re back and should resume our regular posting schedule soon.

    I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and didn’t miss us too much.

    NOT THAT THEY ARE IN THE SAME LEAGUE, AT ALL: regarding Taylor Swift’s singing ability; Bob Dylan’s voice is horrendous.

    SW – No one thinks Bob Dylan has a great voice- but when Dylan was around Swift’s age he was writing better songs than she will at forty – if she last that long. I think her voice is sweet, and charming. But they are selling her image, not her voice. Being able to sing isn’t high on the list these days for a recording artist. She is teenage pop. Does anyone really care if she can sing as long as her shelf life can last? Do you think the people promoting her care if she sounds like Dolly or Ella- they want the cash, the cold, hard cash her image brings to the table. Anything else just gets in the way.

    I actually agree with something on NPR’s site. First time for everything.

    actually, many have argued that dylan has a great voice. it’s as expressive a voice that’s recording today. the timbre and nasal quality may grate on some, but to say he has a horrendous voice? don’t be silly. go back and listen to ‘nashville skyline’ or ‘ain’t talkin’ from ‘modern times’ and re-evaluate. pick a track off ‘time out of mind’ and try not to be astounded by the vocal performances. they’re exquisite. his phrasing is virtually impeccable. of course he’s a great songwriter, that’s a given. but he IS a great singer. he’s no sinatra or pavarotti, but so what? singing is not defined by the concept of a ‘pretty’ voice. dylan redefined what a singer IS.

    Yeah, Kenny, that leak from your publicist totally makes me believe that you are “dating” that Miss Tennessee chick.

    Does anyone else find Taylor Swift’s eyes creepy/weird? Sometimes I wonder if Asians think she’s mocking them, other times I wonder if her face is just pulled back from the force of the wind from all the 9 year olds screaming at her concerts.

    But seriously.. something just isn’t quite right. :(

    I think Amy Colley’s legs are longer than Kenny is tall. Maybe she’s into older, short guys with no neck that happen to be worth a lot of money. Don’t forget the pre-nup Kenny.

    A Dolly Parton knife? What exactly would the handle be shaped after? Hmmm. I think a Bocephus, or Johnny Paycheck, or David Allen Coe edition knife would be far more appropriate. Or how about a Johnny Cash “A Boy Named Sue” knife!

    Carrie Underwear in Playboy? Never happen as Carrie is not dumb and knows her country singing career could, and likely would, take a big permanent hit. I wonder how many of the better known younger female country artists these days would seriously consider such an offer? I would guess not many if any at all.

    I’m sure David Serby appreciates the press he’s getting here on The 9513. David is one of the stalwarts of the tiny and close knit country artist scene here in Los Angeles. Mike Stinson and Dave Gleason are at the top of the LA local hierarchy with David not far behind. I’m just glad LA has a resident country music scene at all! Its not Austin or Nashville by any stretch of the imagination, but its a lot better than nothin’…..

    Playboy should hold out until Taylor goes through her “I’m-a-big-girl-see-my-boobies” phase.

    I always pictured Kenny as more a Miss South Carolina date.
