fashionable

Just a musical note.

I dig opbmusic.org ... which is somewhat like Oregon Public Broadcasting's attempt to create a really cool live streaming version of a college radio station. Very spiffy. Very Oregonian.

Now if only they could stream Powell's, rainy, overcast skies, and a good cup of coffee...

And speaking about Oregon music, The Decemberists have a new album coming out shortly, and have released an initial track "The Rake's Wife" on their website.   Also, Spin Magazine recently offered up a previously unreleased B-side of theirs, which they embedded behind a flash player... but anyone who wanted to look at the page's source code could probably figure out that the track is actually available here, in mp3 form.

Shocking! I'm sure I've said enough already...
