Apple corps

Another chapter in the saga of "Oh, yes, downloading is killing music, riiiiight": Fiona Apple recorded an album two years ago and Sony refused to release it, because they didn't "hear a single." But now the entire album has been leaked, and so now its no big deal that Sony didn't release it, because everyone can just download it for free, right? Oh, no, wait -- in fact, fans are clamoring for Sony to release it, because they really, really like it and they want to buy it. (I've downloaded it, and I have to side with the fans -- it's good stuff. If Nellie McKay's album could sell, why not this?)

There are a few men in opera who don't mind doing beefcake. Friends and I used to joke that Samuel Ramey had a clause in his contracts mandating him baring his furry chest at some point.
