Stereophonics USA tour

Stereophonics have just annonced their US dates for their Pull the Pin tour!

L.A. on September 16th. Cool! I was afraid it would conflict with BlogWorld.

The unofficial SxSW music show

I'm currently in Austin, Texas attending SxSW interactive. I am not attending the music festival that follows next week, BUT... today I had a very cool cab driver who told me all about it. (He's playing in a band himself!)

There are like 250,000 people attending. And the festival is only on the evenings from 8pm to laaate. Plus, it's only for indie bands.

So what happens with a quarter million people all day long?

Well... the majors would throw parties in giant warehouses and would fly in some of their major artists... Basically the unofficial festival ends up bigger than the official SxSW music. Pretty wild eh?

But it gets better: now some bands think it's even cooler to play unofficial, because it makes it "indier" than the official.

Anyways, kudos to the Austin cab drivers. On average they are the coolest I've ridden with! :P

That podcast song [EXPLICIT LYRICS]

You cannot possibly ignore that podcast anthem by Cruisebox [broken link].

What's a little bugging though, is that you won't find the original version with the explicit lyrics, the rude words and all the rest very easily.

So I thought I would post the results of my search here... :P

Verse 2
Do you remember your first computer

Listenin’ to everyone who’s ever done a podcast

Verse 3
It’s history, now you see, each and every nation
Radio has got to go, it’s our emancipation
Play that song, sing along, mash it up and mix it
Radio was fuckin’ blow ‘til Adam Curry fixed it

Yeah, somebody heard the call
Now, you can have it all

Instrumental
