I just listened to Train's cover of a song I've mentioned a few times in recent weeks, Sugar's "If I Can't Change Your Mind," and holy cow is it ever terrible. Now, I don't like and never have liked Train, so I didn't exactly have high expectations for this cover, but it was bad enough to make me think even less of them than I already did, and I didn't think that was possible.

And speaking of the Sugar version, tomthedog posted a video for that song in his pop culture blog, You Know What I Like?, which is a blog you should read if you are a fan of pop culture.

And as long as I'm linking to things, I may as well mention that Sugar frontman Bob Mould has a weekly Q-and-A column in the local alternative weekly, and it's an interesting read.

That is all.
