It’s a Shame About Evan

Where you been Evan? Stoned out of your gourd, probably, in Australia. But, thank god, you’re back! The Lemonheads have a new album coming out in September, and here’s a link to the MP3 "No Backbone" It’s great, a song that could have been on "Its a Shame…". And, they found out which 7-11 J. Mascis of Dinasour Jr. has been working at, talked him into coming into the studio, and got him to do the guitar. He shreds it, as usual. And, to make it even more promising, it’s produced by Bill Stephenson, you did the Descendents, ALL and a couple other great bands. So, it’s sure to blend good guitars, pop/punk, and some good lyrics. I’ll add this one to my list to buy.

I found out about this on My Old Kentucky Home, a great music-focused blog run out of Indianapolis by Dodge. Here’s his write up on the Lemonheads. Christ, he’s good. And, a never  ending flow of good music. I’m going to buy the Kamikaze Hearts, too. Another  thing I found on the site.

Can you Tell Me What Mixx is by looking at the Front Page?

Check out this page. Pretend you don’t know what the Mixx awards are (I don’t). Can you figure out why you should care by looking at this web site? If you can’t figure out what the awards are, how would you answer their question, "can you afford to keep MIXX out?"

** update! After poking around, it seems like MIXX is "the Official Interactive Event of Advertising Week 2006 the MIXX
Conference and Expo is THE preeminent event for marketing and agency
professionals and the publishers and technology firms who help drive
their efforts." Whoever made this site a) doesn’t know jack about intereactive and b) should be fired. Do advertising firms really get interactive, btw?Or, do we have to go to specialty interactive shops?
