    The first minutes of this episode sketch out some recent happenings that I hadn’t head about… and I suddenly got my hoped up VERY high that Sinead O’Connor had charged the SNL stage, ripped Miley in half, and said “Fight the real Disney”.

    No such luck.

    Glad to have you boys back! And I appreciate the noble sacrifice, you’ve listened to some really bad music so that I don’t have to. :-)

        I’m a fan of Tom Waits, both in the “I actually really like his music” and in the “I’m one of those douche-y hipsters who likes saying they’re fans of Tom Waits because of what’s implied when you say that” sense, and yet I can’t stop, I won’t stop, listening to We Can’t Stop. Seriously, I LOVE that freaking song. Short-haired Miley got me. I even flipped the channel to MTV the other day while Miley:The Movement was on, and I watched until I had to leave the house and really enjoyed it.
        I don’t know if this says something about her getting “better”/more interesting or if it indicates my tastes getting a lot less anal.
