In case you haven’t heard, David Byrne takes his blogging very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that past entries to his official journal have taken on Czech Republic steel foundry/coal mine complexes, “The Kindle Experience,” and Bono. But in his latest rant/essay, Byrne goes a bit more apocalyptic. Check out “Internet Antichrist” here.
Whereas Fake Tom Waits joined Twitter in the early days, the real Tom Waits didn’t start tweeting until today. (It’s probably just an intern, but at least it’s an official ghost Twitterer or something.) Anti Records pointed their followers at the new page today with: “All the Wit and Wisdom of Tom Waits is now on Twitter! Follow @anti_tomwaits.”
So what’s he tweeting in there? “Kathleen and I came up with this idea of doing music that’s surrural— it’s surreal and it’s rural, it’s surrural.” Ba dum chh.
OK, I’ve got good news and bad news. Bad news first: Spoon’s record company demanded that all bloggers remove links to download “Mystery Zone.” Good news: Spoon’s killer new song from upcoming album Transference leaked and it’s probably too viral to be contained at this point.
