Today is Radiohead day...

...if you hadn't noticed already. Thom Yorke's (of Radiohead) solo album (buy) leaked onto the internet, and it's pretty crazy. I'm going to go against the flow and you, know, not bother posting tracks. I'll just lead you to them... Frankly, I'm neither obsessed with Radiohead nor a fan at all of electronic music, so it's not doing too much for me.

There are better things to check out...
  • So last week it was Bob Dylan's birthday, and I was completely oblivious. But other people weren't. Another one of those on-drugs-crazy-cover-posts I keep linking to...this time of one of my favorite Bob songs, "Girl From the North Country." Some interesting information about the song: it was written to the tune of "Scaborough Fair," which Dylan had only learned the winter before (1963) from a British folksinger, Martin Carthy. It was also put on my favorite of Dylan's albums, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.
  • One very fun mix-up of The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" with Guns N' Roses' "Welcome to the Jungle"
  • NPR stories on John Stewart (no, not Jon Stewart), the folksinger, and one excellent non-Latino Spanish-singing band. It's pretty awesome. Las Rubias del Norte, anyone?
  • The Sunday Source's list of the best local Jukeboxes. I'm definitely going to try to visit one or two besides the Black Cat's this summer.
  • Islands loses a member...and Pitchfork needs interns for its music about a cheap way to get in...
  • Bruce Springsteen is channelling Pete Seeger?
  • The 50 most conservative songs of all time...makes you wonder

And Politics...

  • Hillary "Clinton A Politician Not Easily Defined"??? Can you hear that spun as "Flip-flopper"? I can...
  • So, if you read Wonkette like I do, you know that they all are out to get Katherine Harris...but the staffers seem to have managed to find someone worse...
