One thought to “Music Around The Web 12-19-2005”

  1. Outstanding collection of articles here John!

    1. Starbucks with an integrated music bar.. who can’t deal with this? have your steaming fresh latte and burn a disk of your favorite songs while you sip ….hum, better buy stock now… it’s a caffeine/music lovers dream come true.

    2. downloading music. no comment. but let it be known, i have a crappy dial up modem… did you hear me Bush?

    3. Iran bans western music. Bad Idea. all that will do is instantly create a greater desire. will we hear an entire nation chant, i want my MTV…. sounds like an excellent way to have the ringing of revolution develop a deeper, bolder rhythm… the underground will never let such laws keep great music, of any orgin, out of the ears of those that love it for the sake of what music really is, the greatest good that mortals can know and all of heaven we have below…

    4. Tab sites. it will be a battle from here on out. not quite as bad as the songs face. but there is some really bad tab out there, that’s not worth downloading, and if it is your fav artist/album, i’m bettig most will pay the price to get the right version.

    5. Ear Buds. what did you say? O, but the bass is so nice out of those! take this one seriously, children, or else you won’t be rockin’ to the good ol days without a hearing aid. and you know how hard it is to find the batteries for those…. headmuffs will stage a comeback. look for cool colors to show up and ones plastered with your favoite band… i think Ted L. Nancy should write a letter about this….

    6. Keith Richards. lol. yes, i think it might explain that marlboro man effect. yeow, though, that must have left a mark! after you win that on Ebay and watch it 10 times, then what?

    John, nice selection. and your top movies of ’05 post is excellent too. keep up the good work of spreading worthy news.
