Borrowing a line from Jim Croce’s “Bad Bad Leroy Brown,” Watts dubbed Ritter the Junkyard Dog — and, ever the literalist, gave him a dog collar and junk cart.

twentyfourbit: Wilco stopped by the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson for the second time of the year tonight and played another pitch-perfect rendition of a cut off their latest album, Wilco (The Album).
