Mp3 blogs. For people like me, who are constantly on the lookout for new exciting music, mp3 blogs provide a daily fix. Run by real music geeks, blogs like Fluxblog and Said The Grammophone provide unknown yet fresh sounds, together with informative and inspiring descriptions. The songs are hosted temporarily, but long enough to spread the word of a hot track or a talented artist. As a starting point for your soulsearching, the mp3 blogs are unbeatable. Other blogs worth checking out are The Mystical Beast, Gabba/POD, Popnose, TTIKTDA and Do you feel loved?

The Naked Trucker From the site: "The Naked Trucker Show" is a cabaret show about buddies...  two buddies that met on the open highway... when T-bone hopped up in the cab of a trucker who likes to drive around naked... and now they sing... naked... well the trucker is..." I got to see the Naked Trucker show here in Hollywood at Cafe Largo last Friday night and laughed so hard I cried. They perform at a number of comedy festivals and recently played on the Conan O'Brian show. Their comedy is at the same time, campy, touching, and densely layered. I found myself laughing at what seemed to be a straight line minutes after they told it. If they come to your area, check them out.
