Eurythmics Symbolic of Slow News Day, plus Bono's Passport Problems, Bob Dylan Intersects Himself, Madonna Crucified, Music Genome/Pandora

  • The Eurythmics re-reunited for an evening at ASCAP's Pop Music Awards. I'm really scraping the bottom of the barrel, eh?
  • Bono got stuck in South Africa because there weren't any blank pages in his passport. Hopefully, Little Steven will come to his rescue.
  • Bob Dylan got three streets named after him in Duluth, Minnesota. That's going to cause some difficulties when giving directions. It'll be worse than all those Peachtrees in Atlanta!
  • Madonna, the Cher of my generation, is back on tour and people are trying to muster the energy to be offended by her crucifix shtick.
  • If you haven't already, you should check out Pandora. It builds playlists for you based on an initial recommendation, say Lou Reed, and finds other bands that have similar elements in their music. Then you can add on preferences, bands, songs, etc. It's a part of the music genome project, and it's a great way to discover new music. Maybe I'll talk to them about adding an Advanced category!
