Roomba Goes Midi on Your Ass, plus NME Smiths Contest, Bono's Face for Business, Lou Reed's "Meditations," Ian Copeland

  • A genius has made the Roomba midi-ready (too bad it's not the Woomba). Music Thing has the video.
  • NME wants to know how the Smiths changed your life. For me, I never tried to pass off "Ere thrice the sun done salutation to the dawn" as my own.
  • A painting of Bono's face is being used to attract foreign companies to Ireland. Because you just don't see enough of his face these days.
  • Word at the Lou Reed forum is that there is a forthcoming CD from the Advanced Mr. Reed, a "65-minute drone and feedback piece with a spoken-word piece over the top by his accupuncturist (with a very difficult-to-understand Chinese accent)." He just never lets me down.
  • Here's a nice obituary for Ian Copeland.
