    Do you remember J-Kwon? In case you don't, we'll remind you. He had a song called "Tipsy" back in 2004 that hit No. 2 on the Billboard charts.

    Stephin Merritt Talks About How His Love For Shopping Affects His Songwriting

    Stephin Merritt isn't the easiest guy to interview. He isn't rude but, at times, it's obvious that he'd much rather be drinking at a bar or playing with his dog than be stuck on the phone with a stranger asking him about his art.

    If you're like me, you've probably been disappointed by Moby's output over the last few years. Last year's Wait for Me, while a pleasant collection of placid electro, didn't have the humanity -- or staying power -- of stuff such as 1995's Everything is Wrong.
