You knew this was coming... Chareidi Idol!

Gift ideas for the musician in your life:Bucket Drums and a FLASHY T SHIRT

Mordy Shinefield emails a link to his latest article, "Yeshiva Destruction: Disturbed's Unlikeliest Fans."

Do these guys sell gift certificates?

Saul Austerlitz is apparently joining the JM beat.

Here's a taste of his latest:
The Chevra’s third album, cleverly dubbed “Chevra 3,” provides a textbook definition of excess: four singers who sound like *NSYNC wailing over ringing electric solos from a guitarist (Avi Singolda) who dearly misses the glory days of Poison and Mötley Crüe. The result is glorious cheese, where the words (mostly borrowed from the Psalms) take a back seat to the desire to sonically overwhelm. Chevra’s fans may not listen to the radio, but someone involved with the group clearly does.
Love his decription of Miami Boys Choir leader Yerachmiel begun as someone who "can't resist a good metal solo."
