LENNY: ok, then let's go on to discuss something else
IVANA: ok, go
LENNY: i like the bob dylan album

LENNY: what label is that on?
IVANA: camp freddy, for the uninitiated, is dave navarro, scott weiland, donovan leitch, billy morrison, matt sorum and a few others. it's on red--from the dane cook movie employee of the month
LENNY: oh cool, i like donovan.... he makes me mellow, yellow
IVANA: it's the son. we do have a generation gap here. although, i'm the one going to see the zombies tonight
LENNY: clearly it's the time of the season

LENNY: whose is it?
IVANA: sub pop. they'll also have a new shins single before the end of the year
LENNY: that could be huge
IVANA: speaking of huge, the killers single is a call-out monster. watching the contestants on rockstar: supernova trying to sing killers songs makes me appreciate the band even more
LENNY: that's good, we need some really big hits out there
IVANA: speaking of monster hits--evanescence is a big huge hit as well
