  • Hello there, Im from the music blog Kapritska. I created a group on Last.fm for music blog owners, and would be awesome if you could join. The idea is to be in touch with people who do the same thing.

  • J, it was emailed by Alex (head Damnwell). I don’t think it has ever been released. Awesome, isn’t it?

    heather — April 15, 2007 @ 10:29 pm

  • Missed it by a couple of days…I’m heading down to Phoenix either tomorrow or Wednesday. Not sure that my wife would be cool with me skipping out on funeral duties to go see a movie…but I have only met her grandma a few times.

"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.
