#musicmonday: No regrets, just love

Posted in 104, awesomeness, blame society, celebrities, entertainment, music, musicmonday on April 18th, 2011 by Hannibal Tabu

Every week, I post a lot of links to free music you can download. Why? Why the hell not? I’m not hosting the links, I didn’t upload ‘em, I have no legal liability and I’m helping promote the artists. Essentially, I’m a g******ed hero! Enjoy!

Sometimes I rant about musical stuff — that goes at the end. The music is divided into three categories …

HOLD UP: Four quick notes before we start …

On May 2nd, 2011, this column (which is what we’ll be calling it from now on) will be moving to Komplicated.com. That’s what this was always intended for, and now that the feline has escaped the luggage, there’s no need to keep goofing around. That means if you’ve been doing this on Facebook, please click “like” on the Facebook page and you’ll be tagged. Somehow. Oh, I just realized how, never mind.

Second, the format of this column is changing. This was considered but is moving up in the queue because Sunday night had a hugely important consideration — a candle lit dinner conversation over salmon with my wife. Everything else had to fall by the wayside when she broke out her romantic steez. Sorry.

Third, we normally focus on downloads here, but Prince is playing 21 nights in Los Angeles (this columnist will be there April 22nd) and he’s doing some crazy stuff. How crazy? How about covering “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” by Michael Jackson, while Eva Longoria dances on stage? Hell yeah!

Finally, look for a #musicmonday extra late tonight with videos from Coachella. Just gotta sort through ‘em a bit, and didn’t wanna stand in the way of the downloads.

Column starts … now!
