Free music...

MP3 blogs.

I love em. The second best thing the internet has to offer...

If you don't know usually it's people or groups who love music, write about it and then give you an example in MP3 form.

Here are some of I check daily. With a link to the site and an example of songs you can get there.
My new favorite classic soul website. I actually don't read the blog much but he offers long, mixes of soul songs organized around a theme. Recent themes included "Soul Strings", "Soul Hammond Organ", "Beatles Covers" and "Popcorn Songs".
You can also download each song in the mix in a zip file. Here's a recent single song:
Geraldo Pino: Heavy, Heavy, Heavy *
Used to be my fav classic soul site, still a winner, but this is where you go to hear great songs and learn a ton about the song, the artist and because it's written by "a PhD in Ethnic Studies from UC Berkeley."
Rita Wright: Touch Me, Take Me
Stereogum is a hipster site that likes art rock almost as much as it likes making fun of heiresses. Hit or miss but often has hidden gems.
Kings Of Leon: "My Party (Kenna And Chad Hugo Remix)"
This site is new to me and it seems to love indie rock, bootlegs and covers. And although we just started going steady, I'm already wearing it's letterman jacket.
Ryan Adams: "I Want it That Way" (live Backstreet Boys cover)
Ok, sorry, I like mash-ups... screw you.
DJ Topcat: Young Folks Rehab

*I'm stealing these download links and they are often temporary so grab em' now. (If you right click and open in a new tab/window you can preview before download. If you want to keep 'em, right click and then click 'save link as'.)

Flowers + Time Lapse, again?

Garden from cohnjoyne and Vimeo.

I'm actually pretty allergic to flowers... but I've found that although they don't smell as good on video, they don't make me sneeze.

My new favorite Red Sox blog...

... keeps its wits about it, and so should we:

"their (NYY's) schedule is about to get a lot tougher and ours (BOS) is about to get much easier."

Finally a movie...

... that is less of a waste of time than the game it is based on:
