Human Audio Sponge DVD!

Saw that Human Audio Sponge (aka YMO aka Takahashi, Hosono & Sakamoto) will be releasing a DVD Feb 8, 2006 called "HAS". Preorder at Tower.jp here: http://www.towerrecords.co.jp/sitemap/CSfCardMain.jsp?GOODS_NO=926020&GOODS_SORT_CD=103

Don't know if there are any more details, but I'm assuming this is the show they did in Spain @ Sonar 2004. Heard some of the audio from that and it was good. Looking forward to this.


Bob Moog has passed away

Decent article at MTV
Bob was the one who started the whole synthesizer craze really. He was 71.



After a co-worker accidentally types HTanks instead of Thanks in an email, I came to the reliazation that when we are all typing Thanks, we are really typing in the user ID of Tom Hanks in a typical networked computer (first initial + last name). So, next time you write an email, remember Tom. THanks!

Thanks is also one of those words if you repeat it enough times, it sort of loses its meaning. Try it! (make sure you aren't at work or saying outloud).


New Stereolab & new (lost) Esquivel

Billboard is reporting some new Stereolab tracks coming out on 7" only, plus a lost Equivel album he recorded live in the studio for the La Margerita mexican restaurant chain in Chicago (circa 1975). Esquivel due Sept. 6.


New Goldfrapp in September

Billboard is reporting a new Goldfrapp album, "Supernature" on Sept. 20 with a new single "Ooh La La" on Aug. 23.


New Kraftwerk

Saw this on the Japanese HMV site, but it is a forthcoming (June 6th release)

It's a 2 CD set of live Kraftwerk called Minimum-Maximum

Their early live stuff that I've heard was pretty amazing.


Tired: Podcasting

I'm sick of the word Podcasting. The radio station KCRW uses it like in every other sentence. "Can't listen to the radio? Go to the website and get the podcast!" I can't take it anymore. Can't you just "download" like the good old days of 2000? Now you have to "podcast"? Come on!


A dog called chappie..


If they made doggie romance novels, this dude would certainly be on the cover. Nice flowing mane, Lion King!

Robbie Dupree = Michael McDonald?

How come Michael McDonald never covered Robbie Dupree's 1980 classic "Steal Away"? It totally sounds like a Michael McDonald song.
