lookout beta

Since I haven't set a Google Alert for my name, someone had to send me this tidbit:

"Once on a roll, Berman obviously has a tough time stopping. Exhibit one: the moment when he pulled out the SF Weekly's review of his latest album, Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea (Drag City), and proceeded to deconstruct, word by word, the Andy Beta piece, which he described as 'the review that really angered me the most.'

"'I can say that almost every single sentence has a mistake or displayed ignorance about country music,' said Berman as he read the entire piece. 'There's so many different wrong things in there. The Statler Brothers are the exact opposite of places where beer is drunk and Stetsons get hung — they were squares.'"

Which is funny, in that I argue the same exact thing about the Silver Jews.
