I think I have alligators in my backyard. Not only have we had a ton of rain, but I stupidly left the irrigation system on automatic. As did all my neighbours. Consequently, a good portion of my yard seems to be sinking. If I’m not around for next week’s podcast, it’s because (a) the alligators finally came for me; or (b) I’ve disappeared into a massive Florida-like sinkhole.
In either case, my will stipulates what should be done with all my music memorabilia–providing it can be recovered, of course.
Speaking of which, did you hear about a lock of Mick Jagger’s hair selling for $6,000? That’s sort of weird, but not as weird as some of the other bits of rock star DNA that have been traded.
Michael and I also talk about Downloaded, the new documentary on Napster. (Spoiler: They get closed down.)
Other topics dissected this week:
- A great app called WhoSampled
- Why songs fade out
- Apple’s possible new headphones
- Vanilla Ice loves us!
- And how to smuggle booze into concerts safely and securely.
Finally, we could use a donation or two. Not that we’re begging or anything…
