* Since she's in The Dead Weather with Jack White now, I'm ready to claim her as a tangential Nashville music person of interest. I'm talking about Alison Mosshart, of course, who is the obscure object of desire in this open letter from NBA dude Paul Shirley. Sweet, awkward or stalky? You make the call. The postscript is refreshingly open-minded: "In the event that you're otherwise romantically occupied, tell the guitarist that, if it doesn't work out with Ms. Moss, I might be persuaded into homosexuality. He's not the beautiful lead singer, but a guitarist ain't bad." (Via Pop Candy.)
* If you paid $8,000 to attend Camp Nashville and "learn" how to be a "country music" "star," then I have good news and bad news. The good news is that you get your money back. The bad news is that you thought Camp Nashville was worth $8,000. Oh, and the other bad news is that the whole thing is "postponed" until 2010. Where I come from, we call that "canceled." Guess you'll have to find some other way to finagle a private show from John Rich. (Via Country Music Tattle Tale.)
* We Own This Town has a new mix up for your listening enjoyment/hatred, featuring DPAUL, Dewey Decibel, Bad Cop and others.
