Quick trip to the library this morning to grab some CD’s and DVD’s. Among the items we brought back: Foo Fighters‘ “One By One“. When I popped that disc in the Mac for a quick listen, here’s what appeared in iTunes:
Now, unless this is a one off fuck-up (highly unlikely), there must be thousands of last.fm subscribers that don’t know the first thing about mp3 tagging, scrobbling this Foo Fighters album, thereby effectively spreading the message that they love Michael Bolton. Thanks for the LOL Dave.
In other news, I got my hands on “yet another” Frank Zappa biography (thx bernard), imaginatively titled “Zappa: A Biography“, by Julian Colbeck. This one’s interesting as it was written in 1987 — that is to say: while Zappa was still alive (and about to kick off the ’88 tour). FZ-fans seem to have received it with disdain at the time (“useless“), however I quite like this particular bio. Its lack of pretension is refreshing — the book presents a “matter-of-fact” overview of Zappa’s life and music without going into minute detail (I’m looking at you, Miles). In all: a great introduction into Planet Zappa for The Young Sophisticate.
Right, well having said that, we’re off to watch:
* Yes of course we’ve seen these before. Jeez!
