A Couple Minor Additions
Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

I’ve been playing with the plug-ins for this site for the past hour and have added a few things.  Most importantly, there is a new system of user registration.  New users can set their own password, have a couple more fields they can fill out, and must complete a captcha.  My time is better spent doing fun stuff with this site than sorting through spam users.  Additionally, users can now subscribe to comment replies and add photos to their accounts.  Have fun!

More War Child Album Updates
Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Update #3:  It is official.  The War Child album to which David Bowie is contributing his song “Heroes” to be covered by TV On The Radio will be postponed until 2009 due to more artists showing interest.  Maybe we’ll get a double disc?  *hopes*

War Child Album Updates
Saturday, October 18th, 2008

Update #1: In my previous post about the upcoming War Child album “Heroes”, I reported that the song David Bowie was contributing had not been released yet.   The official word from BowieNet is that the song will be….wait for it….don’t want to ruin the surprise….”Heroes“!  I know, right? Knock me over with a feather.  You will actually be pleasantly surprised to learn that TV On The Radio will be covering “Heroes”.  They rock, everything they do is good.

Update #2: I hear tell that the War Child album will be delayed.  I’m qualifying this as a rumor since there is no official word.

[edit]Since the delay has been confirmed I am removing this article from the Rumors, Lies, Stories They Made Up category.

Another David Bowie Cover, But This Time For A Good Cause
Friday, September 26th, 2008

I know we bitch a lot on this site about the seemingly never-ending stream of David Bowie covers…either that or we ignore them like the latest Cat Power cover. However, the newest cover will be featured on the album Heroes being released on November 24 by the charity War Child. So I don’t even have the urge to bitch about it since it is for a good cause. The concept of the album is that music legends such as David Bowie, Paul McCartney, and The Clash will choose younger artists to cover one of their signature songs. No word yet as to what Bowie song will be included, but one of the songs will be Joy Division’s “Transmission” covered by Hot Chip. That makes me squee with delight – I love that song! I can’t wait to find out what the Bowie song will be and who he will choose to cover it.
