My Kinda Station!

While reading some one of my friend's livejournal post on customizable radio stations, I came across a great one mentioned by one of his visitors, Pandora. You can create your own stations by either a favorite band or song. It will then play other songs that are similar in genre or sound. If something comes on that you don't like, jut rate it with a thumbs down and it will never be played again. It's a great way to find new music or if you just are tired of the same songs loaded on your iPod or other digital playlist. The other great feature is if you really like a song they played that you don't have, you can click on a link and buy it from iTunes or Amazon.

G.W.A.R. "Kills" Lordi

It looks like G.W.A.R. continues to show their dislike of Finland's shock rock group Lordi by including Lordi's dismembered head on a stick in their stage shows on the current Sounds of The Underground Tour. The rival started when accusations of Lordi stealing G.W.A.R.'s stage show idea of wearing similar foam latex monster outfits and playing heavy metal. During most of the shows Lordi's head appears after GWAR's opening song, Oderus asks the crowd, "Oh, were you expecting LORDI?" and proceeds to take a replica of Mr. Lordi's head out on a stick. As expected, the crowd then gets covered in blood. A video of G.W.A.R.'s performace of this at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ is now floating around YouTube thanks to The Syndicate Blog. You can watch it down below!
