Australia, Mr. Jackson, the third-oldest sibling, said that the R&B family
would reunite next year for a world tour that would include his superstar
brother, Michael, as well as his younger sister Janet. “This has been a long
time coming for the Jackson family to get back together,” Mr. Jackson said,
according to the news agency. “It is just the timing, so what we’ve been doing
is working on the music and all the logistics.” No tour dates have been

Another realization is that Jay Reatard is not quite as poppy in person as he is on record. We saw him wreak havoc at Maxwell's in Jersey City. For a full report read Nick Greto's report over at kevchino (You may have to go below the fold).
Tonight, we plan to head to the Mercury Lounge for Wye Oak and The Music Tapes. And later on to the Bowery Ballroom to see Marnie Stern, A Place to Bury Strangers and Vivian Girls. But another realization is that plans don't pan out as intended at CMJ. Regardless, it's been a blast!

You’ve never heard of Daniel Martin
Moore, from Cold Spring, Kentucky. That’s okay. Before we got his
unsolicited demo in January 2007, neither had we. Luckily, he’d heard of us, and
contacted us the way people in Cold Spring still do—he sent us a package, just
to see what would happen. In all honesty, his odds were quite slim, but
occasionally we’ll take down that “no solicitation” sign on our door.
Eventually, we opened his package and gave his four songs a listen and decided
to contact him—we happened upon Daniel while he was working at a friend’s bed
and breakfast in Costa Rica.

hello my mind is not functioning at the correct speed at the moment thanks to
being in Tokyo but however and here is one of my favourite video things that has
ever happened for Reckoner it is, the result of somebody entering a competition
to make an animation to one of the tunes on IN RAINbows. on aniboom. you can
scroll down dead air space and find all about it.. but anyway
so we asked
them whether it was ok to make it the official one we use as it goes with the
song so well. they said yes.
and if you're like me and find it hard to find
videos on televsion any more, or even turn on the television you can watch right
ok now im going to fold some clothes.
