Things you learn when you finally check your MySpace account

1. Steve Nash (basketball poster boy from my alma mater Santa Clara University) likes to get all freaky-like (from a MySpace bulletin from Gorilla vs. Bear).

And speaking of Santa Clara, last night at the gym I nearly flew off the treadmill when I looked up at the bo-ring sports channel TV that I always seem to get stuck in front of and saw a USA vs. Ireland rugby match on ESPN-U that was taking place at good ole Buck Shaw Stadium there on the SCU campus (took place on Saturday, aired Tuesday)! It was so cool & unexpected to see very familiar landmarks and maybe even a few faces in the crowd while a few states away.

2. Rocky Votolato has a new video for “White Daisy Passing,” which is a song I featured early on in a Monday Music Roundup and I still enjoy immensely. Rocky Votolato also looks suspiciously like my cousin Alan. However, he is not.

3. Roger Clyne recommends my interview with him to his MySpace friends (file under: “near gave me a heart attack” and “muy cool”)

4. There is a free in-store with the Raconteurs at Amoeba SF at 8pm tonight.

5. Leona Naess is playing a handful of gigs in London this month.

If only I checked MySpace more often. Imagine the endless limits of my musical knowledge.

  • My friends recently got me back into basketball and subsequently turned me into a Lakers fan. So it should come as no surprise that I hate Steve Nash on the Suns and laughed REALLY hard at that picture.

    Don’t get me wrong: I think Nash is an amazing player and his team is fantastic. They play great ball. But that’s precisely why I hate them so much.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
