New Pearl Jam photo book (5×1) FINALLY available

I love it when Pearl Jam reads my mind. Just yesterday it occured to me that there was a book of live Pearl Jam photographs (5×1, by Seattle photographer and long-time friend of the band Lance Mercer) that was supposed to come out this past Spring, but that I never heard a peep about it following the initial announcement. I went trolling the web to no avail.

Then just today I was alerted that the book is now (finally) available. It’s 180 pages of concert and tour photos, like the Place/Date book (1998) which I own and love to leaf through. The price is a bit steep ($40!) but it’s got commentary from Pete Townshend, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Stipe, Gloria Steinem, Howard Zinn, Cameron Crowe, Kelly Slater and more, so I will more likely than not end up coughing up the dough to buy it.

I’m just a girl who can’t say no when it comes to Pearl Jam.

Check it out here.

PearlJamOnline.it is a supercool Italian fansite with great downloads. Check out the rar/zip file of the best of the European 2006 tour. It’ll be on this page with the link that says “File zippato.” I love Italian.

And I’ve got two cool posts coming later today once EZArchive stops balking at doing its uploading duty. Same old, same old, I know. See you later.

  • yes, observant c gets the gold star. thank you my dear for noticing. I lived in Italy for a semester in college and am destined to spend the rest of my life wishing i could relocate there. maybe I will! i speak some wicked italian, and by wicked i mean “really bad now because i am forgetting more each day.” ;)

"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.
