As you might know, i’m a huge Lennon fan – and I’m quite excited to share this with all of you – it’s a preview of her new album, Damaged Goods!
The album rocks, I love the first track! Check it out, and enter the contest too!
I interviewed her on Episode 61, and she’ll be in Detroit on Friday (2-17)! So if you’re in the Detroit area, and want to check out an amazing female artist – Go to Smalls in Hamtramck on Friday 2-17-06! I’ll be there, as will some of my friends too! The show is more based off her ‘Career Suicide’ CD, so it will be very personal – I’m looking forward to hearing and meeting her! See you there!!
With podcasting, things I talked about back in 2003 are finally becoming possible:
“The question is, of those 150+ cds I bought, how much money went to the actual artist who made the music? Probably not much. So here’s my thought – what if next time you download mp3s of a good song, album, whatever – you give that money DIRECTLY to the artist? Maybe via mail, pay-pal account, in person, western union, whatever way you can. That way – it circumvents the RIAA, the marketing companies, etc. Any thoughts?? I think it’s a great idea… Imagine people giving money to the artists who hit the drums of a great drum solo via a pay-pal account set up for him?”
The tide is changing, and podcasting is leading the way… Many independant artists are being heard all over the globe because of podcasting, and it’s possible that we could see the first music artist played on a podcast sell over 1 million records… all due to podcast play!!
If’ you’re not listening to podcasts, you’re missing out on the next wave in radio – Better than terrestrial radio, better than Satelite radio – and you can even create your own podcast to join in on the fun!
It’s been a while since I did a car-cast, so I thought I’d take the equipment along for the ride on my karaoke hosting gig – Talked about Podsafe music, karaoke, and more!
And even threw in a karaoke medley from the night, just for good measure!
CD Baby has gathered up many of their artists which have agreed to donate the entire wholesale price to the Red Cross Disaster Relief fund – With music ranging from Electronic to Spoken Word, there should be a CD for everyone!
Just found a cool way of recording your karaoke versions online… ksolo.com – I just signed up for the 7 day free trial (should have waited until after midnight, as I’m down to 6 days now!) and I did a couple recordings – you can have a listen here!
Today I purchased my tickets for the big NIN show on Oct 8th at Joe Louis arena!! I’ve got 2 general admission (floor) tickets – and since i’m a NIN Spiral (fan club) member, I’m able to use a special member only entrance, and am able to enter in earlier than the general public! I can’t wait until Oct!!!!
This is way cool – better than I had hoped! NIN just announced the fall US tour dates, and they’re coming to Detroit (of course) on October 8th and playing at Joe Louis Arena!! Much better (IMHO) than the Palace… Queens of the Stone Age are opening up for NIN… also very cool! As soon as tix go on sale… I’m buyin’ floor! 😉
I did a podcast just about the trip to see Star Wars with Trent on Wed/Thurs at 12:01 – Enjoy!
Went and saw the midnight show of Star Wars Episode 3 with Trent tonight, and it was incredible! Well worth the wait, but wish Lucas would do more! I’ll have a podcast of the event later this week!
In case you haven’t been playing along, today is the official release date of ‘With Teeth’ by Nine Inch Nails! The long awaited follow up to ‘The Fragile’ and I’m on my way to pick up my copy! Of course, I’ve already heard it, and it’s growing on me – looking forward to listening to the Dual Disc version…
And I guess this also means I have to start thinking up titles again… *sigh* 😉
Look – it’s a non-podcast post! 😉
Just wanted to put a post up about Nine Inch Nails – the album, ‘With Teeth’ comes out on Tuesday (May 3rd)!! I’ll be picking up my copy after work, have to drive to Ferndale to get it though! I’ve been listening to the album, and it’s starting to grow on me – I think I’ll have this on a regular rotation in my car! If you want to hear the album – you can – go to NIN’s My Space page and have a listen
Lots of reviews too, of course – BlogCritics, News Tribune, MTV, Boston Herald – all gave the album great reviews! After listening to it without 2,000+ other people in the room, it does have a ‘Pretty Hate Machine’ sound to it, and I think it’s a welcome return of the sound!
The 2nd single, Only (which is where the subject line comes from), really has that feel – and almost sounds like Trent Reznor’s new favorite band, LCD Soundsystem… The video for the song is being directed by the director of ‘Fight Club’, David Fincher. Should be an interesting video too – lots of CG effects…
I’m excited, even though I’ve already heard the album – It’s a good album, that will only get better! And I’m looking forward to seeing NIN in concert too, rocking out to the songs and moshing in the pit 😉
Also – the subjects, which won’t be NIN lyrics for much longer, will be from the new album from now until May 3rd – so you’ll have to listen to the album to figure out the song!
