Here are some more tidbits I picked up from the July 13 issue of Rolling Stone (with Johnny Depp on the cover):
A cool place to find new music and .mp3s: The Hype Machine (http://hype.non-standard.net/)
Ever since I read about this site I've been addicted. It scours blogs for .mp3 postings and then has a little radio station thing that plays the songs most recently added. YOu can also listen to the most popular .mp3s for teh week, so do a search for an artist or song. An excellent tool to find new music!
A movie called Who Killed The Electric Car?. Remember that movie Tucker, about a guy who invented a car with all kinds of cool features but the Big Three automakers put him out of business? Seems history repeats itself. There's a documentary out that examines what happened to GM's EV-1, an electric car with no emissions and no gas or oil that was leased to Californians in 1996, "only to mash its fleet into scrap metal in the Arizona desert six years later." Check out the trailer at www.whokilledtheelectriccar.com and check out the movie when it's released next month.
You can buy cover reprints of classic Rolling Stone magazine covers at www.rollingstone.com/covers for $25 each. I think I'm going to decorate my office with the August 1991 issue with Tom Petty.
You can watch the R-rated version of Buckcherry's video for Crazy Bitch at www.rollingstone.com/crazybuck. (Not Safe For Work!)
