Music notes

(1) On Dion DiMucci's newest album, in amongst the blues songs from Skip James, Willie Dixon, Robert Johnson and such, he has an original named "The Thunderer". It's about, of all people, St. Jerome! (The guy who translated the Bible in Latin, the translation known as the Vulgate.) Check it out!

(2) On The Amazing Race 12, there is a team of a grandson and grandfather, Nicholas and Donald. Apparently, they're the son and father-in-law of Robbie Fulks, the sometimes-country recording artist. If they're anything like him, then I'll guess that the show's editors must cut out an awful lot of FCC no-nos, because does Fulks ever spew them!
