From what I could tell, the online web-diary doesn't bring the entire story to conclusion. But, you can buy a hardback version via his website.

Since I had to know what happened, I ordered the book. Haven't read it to conclusion yet, but apparently the book's been edited for easier reading.

Thank you sir...I picked one up during my lunch hour. Everything's working fine now...no need for me to have the overwhelming feeling of buyer's remorse now!

iPod USB question

So, with all this talk about the pros and cons of the iPod, and a friend of mine showing his off all weekend, I decided to pick up my own. Now, after throwing down multiple hundreds of dollars for it and its required accessories, my computer (which is only about 18 months old) is telling me that I'm...

My mini has a 4 gig hard-drive which is enought to hold about 70 of my CD's. I keep my CD's anyway, as I not only like the covers/notes but need them for my car stereo. (and i have over a thousand so ditching them is NOT practicle) I can't afford the new BMW 5 series with seamless iPod integration....

Re: Enough Already.

Yo La Tengo? Come now. Yeah, I'm a little curious about that one as well. In truth, I never thought I'd see the same post reference both YLT and Rolling Stones, especially in this subject thread. While not nearly as rockin' these days, I'd wager to say that YLT has one of the most unique sounds aro...

Drone: So, you're into music. What's your favourite band? Me: Well...I can't usually pick a favourite. But I really like Radiohead, Wilco, Sloan...(at this point I list a couple more, but then trail off when the guy obviously has no idea what I'm talking about) Drone: I've heard of Radiohead. They ...

ACL Festival

I attended last year's event that REM headlined, which is really nothing like SXSW. Basically, the venue is a small park (usually with soccer fields) about one half-mile square in size. Six main stages, a few smaller ones, but none that overlap each other. So, you're never trying to listen to one ba...

I've seen them a number of times now, but the best way that I can describe them comes from a friend of mine's quote at the end of their show during SXSW 2002: "Everyone's walking away happy and with a big smile on their face, but I don't understand it." I dig 'em...although I don't think their CD do...

Re: Corgan blames Iha for SP breakup

No, they stopped doing that after "Siamese Dream". They SHOULD have broken up then but then hindsight's 20-20 eh? I don't know, as with all double-albums, the whole Mellon Collie mess would've made for a pretty strong single album, if the strengths of both had been downsized into one. Can't argue w...
