ATB: Beatles Going Online, iTunes Join Mile-High Club, Michael Nesmith, RIAA Gets Tough, New York Dolls Get Help, Jack White to Kiss Kinko's Girl?

  • One good thing has come out of the Apple v. Apple trial: Neil Aspinall revealed that they are digitally remastering the Beatles' catalog as well as preparing to make it available online. Wonder if they'll sell it on iTunes...
  • Speaking of iTunes, they are in discussions with in-flight entertainment developers to bring the music service to airplanes. But how will I get to hear the best of Bob Newhart's standup if not on a plane?
  • Michael Nesmith has put off being a media visionary for a while so he can make music again. And make jokes about inertial burn.
  • The RIAA wants people to quit MIT to pay their downloading fines. Next come the broken kneecaps.
  • The New York Dolls are getting help from Michael Stipe, Iggy Pop, and Bo Diddley on their upcoming record. That must have been hell on the caterers.
  • Finally, Jack White has confirmed that he and the White Stripes are officially on a break. Gosh I miss Friends.
