Since I started tweeting my daily music intake, I’ve wanted an iPhone app that would simply transmit song and band information directly from the iPod to Twitter. I’ve found one in iShareTunes. Maybe Blip.fm will come out with something similar, so I can start having fun and playing DJ like MPomy.
Exit le cliché du pilleur qui ne file pas un rond aux artistes. En réalité, ceux qui téléchargent le plus de musique illégalement dépensent en moyenne deux fois plus en achats de musique, que ceux qui ne passent jamais par le peer to peer.
This evening, as usual, I plugged in the iPhone before getting on the Metro home. First up: the first tune off Darediablo’s first record, Blue Plush Interior. Only thing is, I can’t remember what the tune is called. Darediablo might not even have been Darediablo at that point. It might have been the Jake Garcia Group or something. Any help, Hammer? Or anybody else?
Anyway, the song has this big ole funky bass line. Nice. So, I’m grooving on that as I get on the Metro. Then I notice, hold on a minute, something is unusual about this Metro car. There’s no carpet! That’s right, most DC subways are carpeted. But this train is brand new. Not only does it have an uncarpeted floor, it is much roomier and much better equipped in terms of poles and straps to hang onto while you’re riding along. It occurred to me that the new train looked more like an NYC subway car than DC Metro.
So, I’ve got a funky Darediablo track all hooked, I’m feeling the new Metro car, and there’s this New York vibe happening too.
Then, at Farragut West, the driver tells us that everybody has to get off the train because of mechanical failure. The Darediablo tune ends.
So what tune is next? “Groundhog’s Day” by Primus, recorded live back in March 13, 2004. Hammer, Kurt and I attended. Here’s the track from Frizzle Fry, via Lala.com.
