This week on Greetings From Area Code 207

This week on GFAC I interview Jake Roche who's probably best known as a former member of Jeremiah Freed and who now has a new solo record out. He'll be at The Big Easy this Friday on a great double bill with Dominic and The Lucid.

Spring is here, time to race the mower...

No, seriously. Clicking here will get you the local contact for the fifteen year old U.S. Lawn Mower [two words... who knew?] Racing Association, if you think you are strong enough, mean enough, and fast enough to race lawnmowers. Fish around on that site to learn more.

What are you looking at me like that for? Don't shoot the messenger, eh?

David Halberstam and Kurt Vonnegut lost in quick succession

I am a fan of great writing. To some degree, I am a member of the media, and we note when one of the greats passes on. David Halberstam, R.I.P. (and no, he did not just write about sports.)

Hit the jump for more hot dog-on-doll action shots!

Is your dog in heat and humping anything it can wrap its horny little legs around? Are you constantly having to pry your promiscuous pooch off the legs of guests, parents and members of your church? Protect your leg from a hump attack by getting Scruffy a Hotdoll. Yes, it's a sex doll for dogs. It's shaped like a dog and it'll allow your tension-filled pet to go to town as much as his little heart desires, humping away until he passes out in exhaustion, leaving a wispy coil of friction-singed dog-fur smoke wafting into the air.

When did Ryan Adams morph into The Grateful Dead?

From Lily Allen's Myspace blog!

I'm writing to tell you that I have cancelled many of my May and June tour commitments in America . The reason for this , is because my mummy and daddy are very rich , and I have never been in a position where i have actually had to do any hard work before .. I thought that being a popstar meant going out getting trashed with famous people and sleeping in all day . The fact that this is not true has come as a huge dissapiontment to me , and as a result I am throwing the towel in.

New Suzanne Vega song and CD

Magical Mystery Tour Ends for Apple Corps Executive

How many Beatles collectors, after all, have looked at the Sony Legacy reissues of recordings by the Byrds, Janis Joplin and Miles Davis and thought, “If only the Beatles archive were treated this way”?

If you always hated hidden fees

This decision by the Lollapalooza people should come as a nice surprise.

For all the Rolling Stones fans in the audience

Sadly, this is probably saner than snorting your family members.

Springsteen Steals The Show At Springsteen Tribute

Prior to the Boss' appearance, the evening comprised several memorable performances, including stark acoustic readings of "Born in the U.S.A." and "Dancing in the Dark" by Joseph Arthur and Pete Yorn, respectively; a passionate "Streets of Fire" by Elysian Fields; and an infectiously charged "Atlantic City" by the Hold Steady.

Sanctuary Records to wind down U.S. label

From the continuing saga of "everybody uses music, but the record labels can't figure out how to make any money anymore," another medium-sized label shuts down (at least the U.S. operations.) Whither Morrissey and Dolores of the Cranberries?

Did NOT see this coming

Another Day, Another Musical Conquest For Britney Spears. Trying so hard not to be judgmental. Trying very hard not to run shrieking through the 'CLZ offices.

The Police hint at new album.

For art's sake? Because there is a special magic? I mean, c'mon, it's not like any of them need the money...

Nobody learns Japanese that fast...

I wonder if Cheap Trick wore special translation wristbands when they recorded at Budokan?

Happy Baseball Season, see you at Hadlock Field Thursday.
