Yeah I watched this with my daughters when it was on last month and I remember saying that she fucking nailed it. So hot. Also I remember chuckling at the guitarist's self-deprecating grimace about his little flub at 2:17. Great song. [more]

Here in slow old Canada we didn't get yer fancy cash machines until well into the 80's. Luckily, for Johnny Cash, (who was clearly enduring some hard times in the 80's), Canada is so far, far away that nobody would ever see the shitty commercials… [more]
