Can I Leave the Office Yet?
5:30pm.. where you at?
Couple things to end your workday:
I discovered a great new blog today -- Jefitoblog. Talk about well-rounded: they have links ranging from rare Beatles and live Led Zepplin to Paul Simon to Little Feat to, err, Bruce Willis. Interesting stuff. Today's best? A link to a new Soul Asylum song entitled "Stand Up And Be Strong", and , "rarer than rare" Beatles stuff. Very, very cool.
By the way, Soul Asylum's new disc, Silver Lining, is out on July 11th.
In kinda sorta related news, the Jayhawks' Tim O'Reagan has a new album coming out on Lost Highway this summer. A few songs are now streaming at his MySpace site. Also, the Jayhawks' Gary Louris has an appearance on a live Sadies album coming out on August 8 via Yep Roc. (Via Chromewaves.)
In completely unrelated news, AOL, in its continuing quest to stave off irrelevance, has a cool session with Pearl Jam. (Link via Indie Blog Heaven.)
And in even less related news, word comes that Pete Doherty wasn't injecting that poor, passed-out girl, he was just stealing her blood to create art. Err, ok, Pete. Good luck with that.
