NEW YORK - BLACK LIPS IN THE TIMES

March 21, 2007, 3:36pm

We've been kind of worried that ever since giving up the actual news (anybody catch that hard-hitting report on Sudoku this morning?) the NY Times had turned into some sort of _SPIN_-lite tastemaker rag to help keep adoptive parents "with it." But honestly, if that's the way it's going to be and they're going to post videos of the Black Lips running around SXSW on their homepage, what are you going to do? We're sort of hitting saturation point with Lips stuff anyway (not meaning we aren't into them anymore, it's just impossible to write anything about the same band more than 30 times), so we're glad they've got a reputable steward to take care of them while we get a breather.
