Perry Farrell’s Satellite Party

You can stream the entire album by Satellite Party, Perry Farrell’s new musical project, over on their MySpace page. I’ve been listening to it this morning, and while it’s not the worst thing out there, I don’t see myself illegally downloading buying it anytime soon.

I understand the creative urge to keep producing new product, but like Harrison Ford’s film career, I feel like each project Perry does tarnishes his earlier work which was nothing short of amazing.

The new album is out tomorrow.

CD Baby makes me smile

CD Baby may have one of the worst logos on the web, but I can’t think of a place to buy CDs with more personality. During the checkout process of ordering the latest aether album, they asked if I had any special requests. They said I could ask for “anything.” So I asked that they draw smiley faces on the shipping envelope. I thought the request would throw their shipping department into an uproar.

But then the package arrived and there they were: five smiling pen strokes.

Somebody actually listened to me. Try getting that kind of personalization out of your favorite retailer’s supply chain process.
