“It’s intriguing to watch her deal with us”

I guess irony is just pining for the fjords:

But of all the albums written from a woman’s perspective, this is one of the most accessible to men. It’s intriguing to watch her deal with us.

And I still don’t like Dave Matthews.

However, more power to him for signing Liz Phair to his rekkid label ATO, reissuing Exile in Guyville, (15 years… damn) and starting off the batting order (all male) of semi-paunchy Chicago scenesters and related dudes appearing in Phair’s homemade companion documentary Guyville Redux.

The documentary is available free for a few days only over at Pitchfork. I wouldn’t say it’s revelatory, exactly, though worth watching. But, given the impact (arguably on an entire generation of women) of the original release, would it have killed Phair to interview a chick?
