Last night, I downloaded the video for Michael Jackson’s Thriller for my new iPod. I recently had to purchase a new iPod due to hard drive failure on the other one, so I opted to buy a new one. It’s the video iPod, and I have to say that I’m extremely pleased with the purchase. I just thought I’d share that.

Apparently Charlie Hitchcock (ex-Particle) was kicked out of Particle, even though it seemed ammicable when announced. [Glide Magazine]

Chicago band Punsapaya changed their name to Dearborn. “…they found themselves at a junction where the band realized being DEARBORN is what they wanted to do with their life and that the name Punsapaya was not a proper title as to who they are, or who they are becoming.” I think that’s an interesting way to put it but easily well said. I always feel weird when a band just changes their name. Call me crazy.
