The songs that were available on the Wired Magazine CD a couple weeks ago are also available for download at the Creative Commons site. Lots of good stuff there including Paul Westerburg, Chuck D, Beastie Boys, Le Tigre and David Byrne. Next week, people will be able to post their mashups to the site as well.
Production for the sixteenth season of The Simpsons has been delayed. The show’s main actors, who are no longer under contract, have walked out and are demanding more money. Apparently they are holding out for $360,000 per episode, that’s a nice 188% increase over their current $125,000 per show.
Hopefully both sides can come to an agreement soon so we are not left Simpsonless in the fall.
I swore off stadium concerts several years ago after a Red Hot Chili Peppers show, but I made a special exception last night for Bruce Springsteen. This was my first Springsteen experience and I’m happy to say that it was one of the best concerts I have ever seen. Some of the more die-hard fans I know said that the set list last night was one of the best they had seen.

Here’s your chance to experience Junkyard Wars firsthand at a mall near you! Participants will build unique junk gravity-racers and compete on a special effects-filled, mini race track.
For those of you in the New York area, they will be at Roosevelt Field May 16-18. I’m sure you’ll be able to walk right up and build your own “gravity-racer”. No crowds, no waiting, right?
