    With their banjo-tramping traveling songs, their Carter Family slowcore, and their whispery serenades, Tiger Saw make quiet music for swelling hearts. This past New Year's Eve was their 110th show of 2005. It’s not a record: in 2004, they played 129. These aren’t just run-of-the-mill club performances, either.

    The satellite TV on the bus crapped out about a week into the tour, so all we have to watch is the first season of The Cosby Show on DVD. I have no problem with this whatsoever, and Wes says it's helping the Brazilians learn about American culture. Not to mention the jazz music.

    Well, not the arm itself, but for the x-rays of said arm.

    You can check the listing and bid here, if you're inclined to do such things.

    DJ Gorky, Amanda Blank & Rjd2 in Philly









    Marina & DJ Chill in Houston







    Jimmy, our trusty bus operator







    Pedro & Gorky backstage at Pitchfork




    Marina's x-ray - see how the bone is popped out of the socket on the left? That's not how bones should be.
