It is probably a bad idea to watch old episodes of 120 Minutes when you are in a really grumpy mood and there is any chance of the following video/song coming on:

Where can you watch old 120 Minutes episodes? Or am I asking a dumb question because you're sitting on a pile of taped episodes?

VH1 Classic is rebroadcasting them, although I suspect that it is actually just the Alternative using the old MTV graphics/theme.  Unfortunately, none of the old VJs.

I am totally with you. So fun, so annoying, so fun, so annoying.

Sadly, the other stuff of theirs that I've heard has done absolutely nothing to encourage me.

From the breakroom (we're on the 6th floor) I saw a single red balloon floating along between our building and the local school.  Made me think of Nina and her 99 luft balloons which of course, I'll be humming all the way home tonight.

Sleater-Kinney was better on album than live, but they still were the best female rock band of the last fifteen years.

I thought they were just broadcasting the show The Alternative using the "cachier" name of 120 Minutes to try and draw in the sad old bastard crowd, not that it was actual re-airs of old videos in old shows in some kind of orderly fashion.

That video sure does suck.  Nice that the video tagger couldn't even get the fucking name of the song right too.  You'll just have to watch it to see what I mean.

Radiohead virtually giving away its new album online, legally.

I'm sure people have seen this by now, any thoughts?

Damn if this doesn't take on a whole new meaning 30 or so years after release

Radiohead doing that could change the Industry for good.

meh.  Some people might pay up once just for the novelty, but it's not going to change anything.  Radiohead is one of the few bands that can do this and possibly still make money, or not care if they don't. 

Offer a group of people something for 2 cents, and sooner or later that's how much they will pay for it.  Unless they can get it for free.

I realize I've really sold Brian Jonestown Massacre short.  I always thought they were kind of odd, and DiG! didn't help.  Now I kinda see what they were talking about.  13 Tales is a really fantastic pop album, but BJM is the better band overall.  By a lot.
