The service allows users to download songs for 99¢ and full CDs for around $10 a pop. In addition to that, iTunes now supports the AAC format (Advanced Audio… more »

Speaking of Sketchbooks…

…Kevin Cornell, local exotic male dancer/exotic male designer, has posted his most recent sketchbook online. I can’t help but be a bit taken back by the girth of it all. He is too talented for his own damn good. If my sketchbook looked like his I would rule the world (or at least a small island off the coast of… more »

The Jacket Thief

Someone decided to steal my new jean jacket this weekend. Friday night I was hanging out at Tattooed Mom’s on South Street with some friends.

I have also heard that the internet leaks are not the final mastered versions of the songs. Whatever the case, it’s awful damn good. Some great pop action mixed with some very different structural… more »

Wait a Minute Mr. Postman

Every once in a while you get an album that you can’t seem to get out of your stereo. For local crazed mustache man ROb Weychert it’s Lightning Bolt’s new Wonderful Rainbow. For me, it’s The Postal Service’s new Give Up. I just got my hands on it this weekend and have been listening to it more that what would… more »
