The Watch List

Listening:

1. The Kaiser Chiefs AOL Interface Podcast, it features acoustic version of three of their new songs. You can download it here.
2. The Beep Seals - They've got the nu-surf sound down, but could someone tell them to change the font color on their myspace page!
3. Sol.iLLaquists of Sound - Smooth positive hip-hop, also check out their myspace page.
4. The Nudie Suits - New Zealand indie-pop meets American Bluegrass.

Reading:

1.A Cool $25 Million for a Climate Backup Plan by John Tierney - Leave it Al Gore and Richard Branson.
2. What WB Yeats' 'Second Coming' Really Says About the Iraq War by Adam Cohen - Here is the link to the actual poem. It is interesting, but I don't think Yeats was predicting the future!
3. Wag Magazine - This mag collects some really interesting art and literature, and I always enjoy turn pages with my mouse.

Wishing:

1. Bonnaroo Festival Tickets - The Decemberists, Lily Allen, The Black Keys, Aesop Rock, Spoon ... Oh Yeah!
2. Yellowbird T-Shirt Project - Great causes, but it is still $25.

Getting:

1. Free music from Stones Throw! First it was Chrome Children 2 (music from Adult Swim) last month, then they dub February J Dilla month and give us "Thank You J Dilla Act 2" mixed by J-Rocc, and finally on V-Day Peanut Butter Wolf gave us his "Valentine's Day Mixtape". Thank you, Stones Throw!

Watching:

1. The DL - Ever since AOL launch the music blog "Spinner" I've been addicted to their segment called The DL. I especially enjoy any of the episodes that Sara Schaefer is in, she makes the DL a must see.

2. DJ Zebra's mini-documentary of his expirence at Bootie 2005 (I found this here)
