- Nasa bombed the moon this morning. They deliberately launched two spacecrafts into the southpole around 3 a.m. I thought it was a bad idea, but I thought it might at least look amazing. Apparently there were no results that could be seen by the naked eye.
- Ghostface Killah releases the coolest-sounding album title of the year? The Wiz is my favorite movie so Ghostdini: The Wizard of Poetry In Emerald City is such a fun name. Check out reviews at The Smoking Section and Pitchfork [& stream the whole album from the site]
- The Pixies are releasing limited edition CDs and downloads of a few of their European tour performances. You’ll have a chance to hear their 1989 album Doolittle professionally-recorded and played from beginning to end from stages in Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris.
