Here's some of the stuff that's got my attention on the Internet:
- PBS's documentary on Jimi Hendrix is getting some attention. I'm looking forward to checking it out even though I only recognized two people (Steve Winwood and Paul McCartney) they interviewed in the trailer. I don't listen to Hendrix too often, but hearing even his old standards like "Voodoo Chile" in the background of the trailer got me excited to check out this documentary.
- NPR has a great interview with the Bad Plus's Dave King despite the horrible, horrible interviewer. (Some gems: "Is being a drummer hard work?" and "As a Minnesotan, you probably know a thing or two about hockey." When Dave mentions his Midwestern roots/band mates, she changes the subject.) I think it gives some valuable insight on a musician of which I had very limited knowledge. He's so much more than just an amazing, powerful drummer.
- Dave's website is super interesting too. He's a pretty funny dude. You can tell he has super active, super creative mind and a killer work ethic.
- Here's a profile of "sound collector" Justin Boyd. He does what I try to do with my dopey little "Audio Scratch Pad" entries, only he is infinitely more proficient at it than I am.
- And finally, enjoy this French site, wherein contributors record the sounds of their neighbors having sex. Sweet revenge? Erotic enjoyment? Who knows. One thing is for sure: privacy is dead.
