You Caught Us

Wow, for someone who writes "I fucking hate American Idol," and "I'm pretty sure I've never made it through an entire episode of the show," you sure know a lot about it ["Schlock This Way," June 13]. Don't worry man, your friends will still like you if you told them you like the show.


Uh, Boss?

I admire your courage to publicly insult both a commercially successful rock band and a syndicated television show loved by millions. I hope you keep your job!


Good Taste is Hard to Find, Unless You Read Scene

Wanted to thank you for the article you wrote in Scene magazine regarding the movie Intouchables...["The Quad Couple," June 6]. I can't remember a time that I was so awestruck by a movie. We all just sat there watching the credits amazed by what we had just seen. Hoping your article inspired others as well...know why it was the highest grossing French film ever. Lynne Davies

Peanut Gallery Advice

Bobby [Womack] has some nice stuff on his new album [reviewed June 13]... ("Deep River," "Nothing Is Gonna Save You,") but the production and the mixing on the album is the PITS!

Bobby...forget the phony deep electronic base that makes the car speakers boom... you don't have to appeal to 18-somethings.... you can't and they won't appreciate it.

Go back to your old school..."Woman Got to Have It," "If You Think You Are Lonely Now"... play the blues and mix it clean. Sing it and play it don't need top-40 remix DJ tricks to make it strike to the heart...just the opposite. Give us the Bobby Womack we know and love....that's all we need. liber8tor
