    Rugby? Fail. Shirts? Fail. Ties? Fail. Candles? Fail. Pillows? Fail. Slippers? Fail. Hats? Fail. Poetry? Fail isn’t the word. Now we have ‘made to measure’. I wonder.

    The comments are good. I miss this blog.

    The poetry is so terrible, creepy and painful to read. Egan needs a friend to save him from himself.

    Mr. Castleberry, why not allow your readers to comment on your original content but allow your readers to comment on content borrowed from others (the you tube clip)? Your blog seems to have less energy as it once did, and I rather enjoyed the comments as much as the content itself. At one time, I really enjoyed the photography of random people (some not so random?) because I liked to see others dressed as I like to dress. In short, your photography of others who embrace preppy style offered variety but it seems you only post photos of yourself and disable the comment feature. Not good, in my opinion. Your blog could be so much better…

    “And if you look to your left, you’ll see the rapid decline of what was once a really great style blog!”

    This is what you do now - aggressively, constantly ape Wes Anderson and tweet about whole foods. Jesus.

    Saw them play this album at LIU Post in 1994. Still one of my favorites.

  • Let the Good Times Roll

    Music & Books  

    The first listen of JD McPherson's own brand of rockabilly is not all that different from rolling onto the tracks of an oncoming freight train and being T-boned for 36 minutes. That force...that crash…that wild attack. That’s McPherson's Let the Good Times Roll. The Oklahoman's sophomore effort is a raucous throwback rock that's fun, pure, and nostalgic of a time when life and television were black and white.

    I've been listening to a lot of blues lately: Muddy Waters, Darondo, Little Walter, John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson...Gary Clark Jr., Benjamin Booker. JD McPherson’s sound is reminiscent of the earliest days of rock ’n’ roll, when blues and country were essential ingredients in its sound. He douses all 11 songs with plate reverb (a vintage effect which essentially turns everything into space music). But McPherson, like Jack White and The Black Keys before him, infuses a cocktail of subtle influences from punk rock to hip-hop.

    "Bossy," "Shy Boy," and "Head Over Heels" will have you turning it up to 11—their hooks, handclaps, and fuzz baritone guitar buzzing through your head and your hips. The entire album is a riot.
