Wonder Twins: A.R. Rahman's Journey Home World Tour

New Wonder Twins in today's Metro Times. This time we went back to the Pontiac Silverdome for the make-up date of A.R. Rahman's Journey Home World Tour. The original date, back in June was cancelled when the entire stage collapsed. Like, collapsed. Looking at the stage - which you can do by using your eyes and directing them toward the two photos below (taken by Jamie "My Cellular Telephone Is Awesome" Hornsby) - you can imagine, if all of that came crashing down, that it might be a pretty big catastrophe. Thankfully, there were only a few minor injuries. But it was only a couple hours before show time, and virtually everything on the stage was destroyed. Scary. SPOILER ALERT: The stage did not collapse this time.

A treasure trove of musical goodness for Morrissey and Smiths fans

I have clearly been ignoring my overflowing Google reader of musical blogs for way too long - because the other day I came across a post from The Vinyl Villain titled "ONE SONG BY THE SMITHS: A Saturday Series (Part 11)." Part 11?! Wait, what? That means there are 10 more of these that I happened to miss? Shame. On. Me.

I'm currently nerding out and catching up. Wow. Each post features alternate versions, videos, live bootlegs... all with with the kind of sincere fan musical analysis and critique that makes me weak in the knees.
Now, I've noticed some of the MP3 links don't work on the actual blog anymore - BUT... they all seem to be working in my Google Reader. So do yourself a favor and add The Vinyl Villain to your reader and get reading/listening.

And when you're done catching up on the Smiths posts, check out his "IT'S FRIDAY, I'M IN LOVE ... WITH MORRISSEY" series which took a look at each Moz single ever released. Good, good stuff.
