  • I can’t wait for the new Pearl Jam album. A letter never sent has all the tracks you need from their previous releases to put together a nice mix to get you in the mood.
  • Kwaya Na Kisser has a live recording of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke guesting with R.E.M. on “E-Bow The Letter.”
  • I normally wouldn’t link to Bono solo tracks (sorry U2 fans). But when you have him covering “Give Me Back My Job” with Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Carl Perkins you just can’t avoid it. Head over to Cable and Tweed now to give it a listen.
  • Mocking Music has a bunch of live tracks from Neutral Milk Hotel, R.E.M., Wolf Parade, Sigur Ros, and supergroup The Bens. Well, they’re super to me.
  • Let’s stick with the live music thing: Ear Farm has a whole Red Hot Chili Peppers concert live from London, while Phish & Chips has a solo Ben Harper show live from Boston.
  • And finally, m3 online has four versions of Feist’s “Mushaboom.” Why do you need four versions? Because it’s that damn good, that’s why.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Giant Tetris

by

Go ahead, take a break from your work and enjoy one quickie game of tetris. Techie geeks created this giant game of Tetris on the side of a building in Rhode Island using “eleven custom-built circuit boards, a twelve-story data network, a personal computer running Linux, a radio-frequency video game controller, and over 10,000 Christmas lights”. But they still got screwed by the elusive l piece.

SIZZLER: Kidman Never Congratulated Holmes

by

nkindex.jpgNicole Kidman has clarified her passive aggressive statement last week in response to the birth of Suri Cruise. The actress was quoted saying “I hope mother and baby are doing well,” but neglected to publically congratulate ex-husband Tom.

But now she’s laughing off reports that she said any of it. She was clearly misquoted. So now she’ll probably make a proper congratulations to both Tom and Katie…. Any minute now…Nicole?

CINEMA’S GOLDEN AGE: Silent But Deadly

by

silenthill.jpgHollywood loves making crappy movies almost as much as we love watching them. Here are this week’s class favorites:

1. This movie is almost as entertaining as sitting on your buddy’s futon, eating Cheetoh’s and just watching him play video games for hours on end – $20.2 million

2. Hilarious skewering of “topical” pop culture events like Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah’s couch last year, daring and original Brokeback Mountain jokes, and 1997′s Million Dollar Baby – $17 million

3. Because watching Kiefer Sutherland run around with a gun, screaming “Noooooo!” once a week just isn’t enough – $14.7 million

4. I’m melting! I’m meeelting! Nooooooooooooo! – $12.8 million

5. They had the talking animals part right, but they forgot about the arctic temperatures – $8.1 million

Papa WOW

aww yeaaahhhh.jpgA lot of people have an embarrassing answer when people ask them the question “What was the first concert you ever attended?” For some people it’s a humiliating early 90′s pop act like Color Me Badd, for others it’s a forgotten post-grunge act like Bush or the Gin Blossoms, and for most it’s New Kids on The Block (or even worse, NKOTB.) But as bad as some of those acts are, imagine being the kid who answers, “Well… it was this guy who used to be married to Britney SpearsKevin Federline.” Would there be anything worse? Sadly, it’s going to happen to somebody. BlogNyc has pictures from a K-Fed performance– people attended, people gave him the finger, people will now be forced to tell people that they went to a Kevin Federline show for the rest of their lives. Poor souls.
