All the cool kids are ditching work and school. Be there or be a Richie Cunningham. If I see you wearing an obvious combination of red on top, white on bottom (or vice versa), I will kick your ass.

Dudes and Dudettes- ARTROCKER NOW HAS A WEBSITE! If you haven’t heard of the little mailout that could, well here is your chance to get caught up, you big fat loser! Coming from of the sassiest, snarkiest limeys that side of the Atlantic, ArtRocker is a weekly music text-fest. And I have been known to input some little New York moments now and again to the list, so check out the archives for some fun stuff you might have missed. Two thumbs up!

THE “E-MAIL NOTE” I MIGHT HAVE TALKED ABOUT IN… ER… ONE OF MY E-MAILS TODAY

OH MY GOD.

Something was messed up with my e-mail, so if you e-mailed me in the LAST 2 WEEKS and I haven’t responded, I wasn’t blowing you off! I just realized something was wrong now… I mean I thought it was weird I wasn’t getting digital love from anyone but I just figured.. that I wasn’t saying anything interesting! Holy Jesus. I apologize for the delay in responses. You’ll hear from me soon.

Coldplay to perform on the MTV Europe Music Awards… Host (and Coldplay fan… for real!) is P.Diddy.

From the SR mailing list:


Sigur Rós have spraypainted a mural on a wall in laugavegur, the main shopping
street in reykjavík. the wall is located next to the band’s favourite record
store in reykjavík, hljómalind. when ágætis byrjun came out in 1999, the band
displayed a huge wooden carving of one of the angel drawings from the album,
which they had carved and painted themselves.

Listen to the new Turin Brakes song, “Long Distance.”

Higher-res versions of “Outtathaway” now up on the official Vines site.
