you've probably heard that google has launched their video search along with a player. how might this day go down in history? the beginning of the end of cable tv? google stepping directly in the ring with microsoft?

can't afford an air conditioner?

j. ralph's music hasn't made him famous, but it has certainly made him rich.

his job? making volvo, volkswagon and other "edgy" brands sound rad. typical assignments? make it sound like the tv is broken. make it sound like music from a student film by stanley kubrick.

if you aren't drooling in envy yet, you should know he records in a retired silent movie theater in lower manhattan.

new on the way. live at the house of blues features pac's last taped performance along with snoop and ex-weed carriers the outlaws. most notably, the extra footage includes an interview with suge knight. in this unseen footage, he may or may not make vague threats against everyone on earth, gross accusations of homosexuality and hints at secret porn videos featuring every famous female ever.

the ny times by praising the blog at the expense of believer magazine's professed earnestness. people may make fun of zach braff's effusiveness, but really garden state did for indie rock what breakin 2: electric boogaloo did for turbo's career.
If The Believer's music issue is more problematic, that's because it's also more neutral. In an effort to stamp out snark, the editors also seem to have stamped out skepticism, and so the magazine takes it for granted that indie-rockers are the most important musicians on the planet: the harpist and songwriter Joanna Newsom, for example, taps into "a deep, universal pain." (Might those words appear on a certain blog sometime soon?)

neal pollack on and his experience with mcsweeney's in this past sunday's new york times book review (reg req'd).
I can barely remember century's dawn, before my persona arrived. I had a job, I owed no debt, I rented an apartment, I wasn't married. My knees didn't hurt when it rained. Then I got involved with McSweeney's, which, according to most dictionaries, is an old Gaelic word meaning "trendy literary scene."

and dave eggers' (complete with a response-to-the-response from pollack).
He quotes me as saying, "We're about to enter a new age of literary celebrity." When I read this online this morning, I had to re-read it a few times, looking for some postscript that indicated that, as Neal usually does, he had made the quote up. ... The quote doesn't sound like anyone, really—no one would have said something like that, unless they were addressing, in a bad late-'80s TV movie, some kind of misguided depiction of a glitzy (ha!) book-industry convention.

a delicious glass of sizzurp

turns out there are several schools of thought on this provocative question.

i've been listening to a promo copy of cage's upcoming hell's winter cd, and it's pretty good stuff. beats by el-p, rjd2, and dj shadow (!) (rollie p has the shadow-produced track available for dl ), as well as instrumentation from members of yo la tengo, on some str8 wtf shit. i haven't really kept up on what cage has been up to for a while, but he has sure switched his style up (in a good way) since his days of ultraviolent rapping about eating people's eyeballs or whateverthefuck gory zaniness he used to be into. the new album has a lot of political content and "regular dude rhymes" mixed among all the x-rated-ness. the end result is something as equally inspired by slug/aesoprock as it is by the grimy rap styles of onyx (not to be confused with the grime rap styles of all those british dudes). i RIKE it.

turns out i was mistaken when i thought that battery science was moving right along. wiredblogs reports a discovery that the ibook battery is . jeeeez guys, that's embarrassing!

however the hard drive scientists continue to squeeze more info into tiny crevices. Seagate just annouced the first . Its the first drive to use new "perpendicular recording" which allows for larger yet more efficient drives:
Standing bits on end also improves the reliability of read-write performance in demanding environments. The Momentus enhancements come without increases in power consumption or heat generation - crucial as remote users look to work longer between battery charges and system builders seek to pack more performance in smaller notebooks.

william powell, the author of the anarchist cookbook, .
During the years that followed its publication, I went to university, married, became a father and a teacher of adolescents. These developments had a profound moral and spiritual effect on me. I found that I no longer agreed with what I had written earlier and I was becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the ideas that I had put my name to. In 1976 I became a confirmed Anglican Christian and shortly thereafter I wrote to Lyle Stuart Inc. explaining that I no longer held the views that were expressed in the book and requested that The Anarchist Cookbook be taken out of print. The response from the publisher was that the copyright was in his name and therefore such a decision was his to make -- not the author's. In the early 1980's, the rights for the book were sold to another publisher. I have had no contact with that publisher (other than to request that the book be taken out of print) and I receive no royalties.

Screwed Up Records & Tapes is the store that keeps alive the memory of Robert Earl Davis Jr., a.k.a. DJ Screw, the local hip-hop DJ who was the inventor and namesake of screwed music. No one knows for sure how or exactly when Screw created the slowed-down sound, but members of his south Houston crew, the Screwed Up Click, say that Screw was playing around with his turntables in 1991 and serendipitously discovered that dramatically reducing the pitch of a record yielded a mellow, heavy sound that resonated with the slowed-down pace of H-Town.

The pressure on Watterson must have been enormous, but he steadfastly refused to sell out, even a little bit. "I look at cartoons as an art, as a form of personal expression. That's why I don't hire assistants . . . and why I refuse to dilute or corrupt the strip's message with merchandising," he said in his Festival of Cartoon Art speech.

Traditional copyright faces webcomics with an uncomfortable choice. Its restrictions, properly enforced, would mean a virtual end to crossovers and homages, fan art, fan fiction, and many other staples that make the webcomic a more entertaining creation and foster artistic growth. A total lack of copyright, however, leaves unscrupulous readers free to “bootleg” subscription sites, program tools to deprive comics of advertising revenue, and even profit from others’ labor without permission.

the new york times music for robots.
Only a handful of music blogs, with names like Fluxblog, Stereogum and Largehearted Boy, have any influence, but even those still have a long way to go to fundamentally alter the landscape of the music industry. Many labels view blogs as little more than potential providers of free publicity; even a blog like Music for Robots, which gets about 8,000 unique visitors a day, is little more than a blip on the radar of major labels. But blogs are acting as incubators for new talent like the Hysterics. It's doubtful that MTV would have discovered the band as quickly otherwise.

I always had dreams of becoming a successful rapper. More importantly, I had dreams of being successful. A lot of people have one track minds of what they want to do. Sometimes that works, but they never think that they may have another position in life to do. For example, some rappers aren’t good rappers, but they’re great CEOs. Some CEOs aren’t good CEOs, but they’re great rappers. I always kept that in mind, so I just did whatever I had to do to be successful – part of that was doing street promotions, deejaying, being a rapper, doing the gold teeth. All of it was me – Paul Wall.

not new but still laff-worthy: .
[Tino] doesn’t look the least bit creepy or unnatural. What he looks like is a smoldering latin heart throb…wearing Jordache shorts that were made for an eight year old girl, and an izod golf shirt that is stretched so tight you can see through it. The colors used in the title block are timeless, assuming your idea of time is between 1976 and 1978.

According to John Jay, the executive creative director at Wieden & Kennedy, the advertising company that has long had the Nike account, consumers are savvy enough to play limbo with the markers of design elitism and democracy, mass-market and independent. ''The trend for customization is definitely about a growing indie spirit in a sea of mass,'' Jay says. ''But it doesn't have to be one versus the other. It's also about a new sense of originality, where one brand's innovation is enhanced by yet another source of ideas or editing, about cultural remixing and not being satisfied with only one source of originality.'

. jeez, it doesn't get any worse than having your fucking wallet stolen in front of thousands of gangsta rap fans.

A burned car discovered in Vallejo on Wednesday has been connected to the Las Vegas slaying of a Kansas City rapper listed by police as a "person of interest" in local rap legend Mac Dre's death late last year.


there's a new built to spill album .

There's just something about leaning on a piano in a Paris studio that makes you want to sing other people's songs. And when it came time to put together the album, we had 20 songs to choose from and by then it didn't matter which ones I had written and which ones I hadn't. It wasn't an issue anymore - we put on the songs that seemed to belong together. I don't think I'll do any covers on my next album though. Though I may do something that's sort of traditionally based like "When I Was A Young Girl". I like doing those songs, because otherwise they don't survive.
