I applaud the efforts made to keep this album from leaking but I am very thankful that it is finally here. Links below from a few people who have uploaded it.

...and there gone. I guess we couldn't expect them to linger for long. Regardless, the album is out July 10th.

STYLUS posts this article comparing the UK's original tv series "the Office" against the US vesion. In the article, they battle out the Receptionsists, the Music, Embaressing Situations, etc.

Itis much too long for me to read now but if you want to jump ahead to the spoiler.....UK wins 5 to 4.

I think Peyton did a decent job and held his own despite being a non-actor. Considering the recent show with the talented Julia Louis-Dreyfus bombed, this guy soared. Get the clips while their HOT - it looks like NBC Legal is all over YouTube's links.





Bloc Party extend their US tour...the State of Ohio is still left behind.

BEST of the REST

These are the new bands I listened to that were OK but didn't get the full post treatment.

BATTLES: If you watch LOST, I would say this the music they are playing when Sawyer and Kate found that guy in the brain washing room. Off the wall, non-stop, noise. Sometimes ambient, sometimes driving, sometimes loopy as hell.

COCO ROSIE: More rainbow colored sprinkles by the way of Animal Collective-ish weirdness, this time, more centered by the 'rap' stylings of the ladies. A nice mix of Bjork and Antony and the Johnsons.

MIKE: Is it hetero to listen to a conglomeration of Freddie Mercury and the Scissor Sisters? As much as I enjoy the good qualities of those artists (seen in his track, 'Grace Kelly'), I get a bit skeeved listening to MIKA's voice never leave the helium-induced atmosphere as on 'Relax, Take It Easy'.

A look at new college hoops uniforms

'Starting tomorrow night, four top schools—Arizona, Florida, Ohio State, and Syracuse—will don Nike's System of Dress, a radical new look that brings ....baggy shorts.....form fitting jerseys (ten inches smaller in the torso), resulting in a second-skin look that's more Bode Miller than Ben Wallace. Players will also be able to customize their uniforms by adding options like padded shorts (to protect against the errant knee or elbow) and Dwyane Wade–style leg wraps.
