clap clap blog: we have moved

I had composed a post on this and then deleted it because I worried that I myself was being, um, punk'd, but since David at NYLPM and Sasha both jumped in, let me point out that as I was listening to the Steely Dan section in question (in which Tom listed a few bands that were objectively bad--I can't remember the other ones offhand) I thought, "Oh, he's baiting music nerds again. I wonder if that will work?" I'm pretty sure it did--but, of course, I could be wrong. Still, there's a whiff of prank in the air.
Of the rest of the bit, I liked the White Stripes point the best.
