The Black Lips vs. India

The Black Lips flee India, scared they’d be put in jail by angry tour sponsors.

we have had to flee the country of India due to

having our whole tour canceled and having to escape being held by

police for indecent exposure during our most rawkus set in Chennai at

the Campus Rock Idol showcase.

Jrips Found YouTube – The Death of Charlie Parker

Good Story – When Charlie Parker died, the coroner estimated him to be a 55 to 60 year old man.   He was actually 34.   That is some hard living.

At Mixwit, you can create your own digital mixtapes and share with friends.I love Mixwit’s service and sent them an e-mail with my own suggestions.

Mixwit was kind enough to personally respond back.


Great suggestions! We’re working on this.

great app. love it. I would like a “your mix is like…” feature based on similar song choices. also, mix pics take long to load. Are you creating the thumbs on the fly. Seems like you could cache the image somehow.

also, i’d rather subscribe to a user’s mixes then just favorite one mix. if they made one good mix, they’d probably make other good mixes and i wouldn’t mind if you notified me when that user made a new mix.

Sadly, while trying to post this mix, I’ve discovered that the “Post to WordPress” link doesn’t work too well. So I can’t embed the mix in this page. Sux!
