Joan's such a bore. Her 15 minutes have passed. Thank God both Patti Smith and My Morning Jacket are playing on New Years (going to see MMJ b/c I'm seeing Patti the two days before)...and tons of other interesting people. Great ways to welcome in the Year of the Obama!!

I disagree. I saw Joan this year at the middle east in Cambridge this year and thought her show (with just a drummer) was fantastic. The show was loose, sparse and emotionally charged and her voice was beautiful and clear.

Agreed with 10:35. A huge and underrappreciated talent. Superb songwriter too.

Joan boring? I strongly disagree having seen her twice in London (and will go again when the opportunity arises). Both times Joan was fantastic, funny and the spotlight, in my opinion, definitely suits her. We in the UK love her. With Joan we have someone who can actually sing, write songs with such beauty and passion, play instruments, who thinks, cares and who is gorgeous. Her work is simply wonderful, music for the soul and her collaborations with the wonderful David Sylvian (No Question, Ballad of a Deadman etc)are stunning. I hope that Joan will want to be around for a long, long time yet.

I took 1 st business loans when I was very young and that aided my family a lot. Nevertheless, I need the car loan as well.
