Already started putting things together in a movie of some kind and I could use all the material that I can get my grimy little paws on. So send them this way (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll be sure to include them in the up and coming "Road Tripping with Capt. Buffnstuff."

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have a CD in stores, titled "Raising Sand." Grilling out one night a couple weeks ago Mien Vilif tried to introduce me to the disc.
"Voice of Change" was recorded in 1969. Yea, groundbreaking like Mason Proffit and a dash of these guys...

There’s one last thing to find out: what these children think about the Beatles after such extended exposure to them. Unfortunately, the panel’s powers of speech have been exhausted. The most I can get out of them is that The Beatles are “very good”. But the following day Otto’s friend Willard, an articulate nine-year-old, comes over. I play Norwegian Wood, A Day in the Life, Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds and Helter Skelter to the boys. After careful consideration, Willard explains the Beatles’ place in society today.
“Now it’s all about the pop and the urban,” he tells me. “This is the time for Lady Gaga and Beyoncé. The age of rock has gone, but you can still put on Helter Skelter for the old geezers and enjoy it. Actually, The Beatles’ songs are much better than the modern songs.”
“The Beatles are great,” concludes Otto, with the conviction of someone who knows about these things. “The modern songs are a pile of dog c**p.”

NEW YORK (Billboard) - "Super poppy." "Just plain fun." "Surprisingly optimistic." "Catchy as hell." These are not phrases often used to describe Pearl Jam, the 30 million-selling purveyor of angst-ridden guitar rock now approaching its 19th year of existence.
And yet these are the words being used on blogs to describe "The Fixer," the first song from the Seattle rock band's ninth album, "Backspacer."
