Are online guitar tabs soon to be a thing of the past? The US Music Publishers’ Association is doing all it can to make that happen. Already, the Online Guitar Archive and Guitar Tab Universe sites have gone black.
“It is simply wrong and unjust that many illegal Web sites are able to make money, whether from selling advertising, other products or by other means, giving away music that does not belong to them,” MPA President Lauren Keiser said in a statement on the association’s Web site, www.mpa.org.
May I suggest to Mr. Keiser that he get a life — puhlease.
3.) “The dumb-ass witness” – They find some yocal who may or may not have seen the incident, but you get his incomprehensible story anyway. “he drove up dare see den turned around and came back to where I was standin’ at…. then started firin at the man, bam-bam bam see”. The best ones are from places like Melvindale or Taylor. Oh and don’t forget the brother who ends every sentence with “know what I’m sayin’”, know what I’m sayin’.
The French have been voted the world’s most unfriendly nation by a landslide in a new British poll published. They were also voted the most boring and most ungenerous. The Germans have no to reason to celebrate the damning verdict. They came second on all three counts. Italy was voted the world’s most cultured nation with the best cuisine, while the United States was named the most unstylish with the worst food.

I’m a bit late to post this, but if you haven’t seen these video’s yet, you really should because they’re brilliant: comedian Stephen Colbert at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner drops a couple of napalm bombs on the Bush Administration — in the presence of an increasingly annoyed Shrub. The video’s: parts one, two, three.

Neil Young is set to release a new album called Living With War. The songs are — surprise! — anti-Bush / anti-war, and will be available as streaming audio on his site next Friday. There’s even a weblog:
This is about exchanging ideas… it’s about getting a message out. It’s about empowering people by giving them a voice. I know not everyone believes what I say is what they think. But like I said before.. ya know.. red and blue is not black and white.
The event was emceed by Moon Zappa, who approached the stage while Kanye West’s “Gold Digger” was playing and proceeded to get down in an embarrassing-mom kind of way. We laughed at her rather than with her, but her lack of pretense was endearing.

Idiot Morons Forever: a pay-per-view TV “seance” is set to contact the spirit of late Beatle John Lennon.
The programme, on US digital channel In Demand, will feature psychics travelling to sites of significance to the former Beatle, including the Dakota building in New York where he was shot dead in 1980. They will then assemble around a seance table, with infra-red cameras to capture any “presence” in the room.
Yoko Ono’s spokesman Elliot Mintz sums it up nicely: “A pay-per-view seance was never his style.”

More Tom “I may be a crackpot but I’m not gay” Cruise news: apparently Viacom pulled last night’s scheduled repeat of the high-rated “Trapped in the Closet” South Park episode after Cruise threatened to cancel all publicity for Mission Impossible 3 if Comedy Central aired the episode that satirizes Scientology and mocks his sexuality again.
