I heart Ashley Tisdale.


Check out Aly and AJ. Better songs and pop-ier. I find myself humming thier tracks much more than Hanna's. (This coming from a 30+ yr old father of a 5 and 6 year old that love Hanna Montanna.)

Ashley is dreamy, though.

Brian Turner

I've plays Black Oak Arkansas tons. What's the problem with 'em? even Lester Bangs gave them the thumbs up.

Irwin Chusid

BT: twice = "tons." Both after the above date.

Miley's 2nd will be produced by O'Rourke and you'll be all over it, Turner.


I heart Irwin, man. You just rock.

I had a radio show on WRCT back in the day that I now realize was more punk rock than I thought it was--because I played stuff the punks wouldn't touch (but apparently I didn't suck as much as I thought I might have).

I must admit, though, the most audacious guy I could think of was the guy who played "It's The End Of The World As We Know It And I Feel Fine" something like thirty six times in a row. He was a normal, and completely deranged the regular listeners. That's chutzpah...


Oh, and Radio Disney often has the best music playing on Omaha AM radio.

Which isn't saying much, but you know what I mean.

M. Barber

Nothing gets me hotter than intra-WFMU semi-spats.

Especially when they are about Black Oak Arkansas. You all should tell us what you are wearing.

Irwin Chusid

Barber: Too bad you missed the Scott Williams-Mike Lupica Gorky's Zygotic Mynci smackdown three years ago. It drew blood — Joe Belock's, I recall.


It's more than that. She has a powerhouse voice, and a Lucille Ball/Jennifer Aniston/Mary Tyler Moore-style comedic sensibility on-screen. You can see it in her effervescence, her hyperactiveness, her unbridled energy. She has a bright future ahead of her.

You have to admit the infectiousness of Miley Cyrus.

Brian Turner

>>Miley's 2nd will be produced by O'Rourke and you'll be all over it, Turner.<<

Heather O'Rourke's dead, Irwin. I'm assuming that's who you're referring to.

Hell's Donut House

I have Britney Spears' "Toxic" video on my iPod, and until now I was almost embarassed to admit it. Almost.

Donut: Justify your lust — check out DJ Joel-Steven's Britney vs. Offspring mash, "Pretty Toxic for a White Girl" (scroll down under "Classic Voicedude"):

While strolling my 4 month old girl through Target, I saw the Hannah Montana CD and I bought it. The only places I had ever heard of it were WFMU and Boing Boing. I listened to it in the car and I thought it actually sounded like The Cars. Her voice is pretty deep for a kid, which I noticed only after I realized that I could understand each and every word she sang. I'm not used to that, as I mostly listen to punk rock, foreign music, or Mastodon.

I took a chance with 10 bucks, but I can't understand yet why anyone would have preordered it.



Miley Cyrus has this quality, a leading lady quality. She is fearless, has no qualms about carrying that show. It's hard to describe. I could write a book on what that effervescence is. :) It's that quality that comes from a phenomenon, that 'x-factor' from the ether. It's magic.

Bob DuCharme

If you like poppy singles by overly sanitized TV tweens, Hilary Duff's "Come Clean" was surprisingly good. "Let the rain fall down..." Produced by her Good Charlotte boyfriend, it's much better than anything on the one GC album that my daughter has.


hey im alyssa im mileys biggest fan ask me any ? about her i will anwser it perfectly just ask i could you anything well not any thing i am still reserching a little bit about her but...

Steven Peterman, Executive Producer, "Hannah Montana"

A friend sent me your review of the Hannah Montana cd and I enjoyed your willingness to hear the music and appreciate it for what it tries to do (and I agree with you, I think it does it pretty successfully). I certainly understand why you might not want to sit down and watch the show and while Disney would always welcome more audience, you're not their demographic anyway. But, if you do wind up visiting young, female relatives and find yourself trapped in front of the set for an episode I hope you'll find that, like the music, the show aims to be energetic and fun with a positive (but not cloying) message. As dads ourselves, Michael Poryes and I have tried to make it something kids will enjoy and parents can watch without wanting to rip their eyes out of their heads. If you ever catch it, you can let us know how we're doing.

Debbie Poryes

I don't find the booty shot above, nor the pouty sexy lipsticked lips on the cover of the "book" indicative of "the girl next store", unless you are living in a neighborhood with streetwalkers. This is an overly sexualized role model presented to girls aged 8-12, most therefore who do not even have their periods yet, let alone breasts or sexy lips. Don't we want our girl children to aspire to more than this?

Irwin Chusid

I look at Miley and see an immensely talented, hard-working young entertainer, and a diligent teen who apparently makes her parents proud. You look at Miley and see a tart. Eye of the beholder, Deb.

Miley Cyrus Fan

Miley is indeed amazing, and I love her music. I think you've done a nice summary of her here. I think she's got a great direction ahead of her, as she looks like she's been keeping her path fairly clean so far (unlike the Britney's out there).
