goldfish need music too. this one's taste is ultra-refined. only the best for the fattest fish around. read the blog. we'll drag you through concerts, websites, new music reviews and the same stuff you read everywhere else. except here, we're ruled by a creature whose memory is three seconds long. it's a tough swim.

the napster-like magic moment. so Muzzle of Bees (i love you, if only for your blog name, that is my favoritest Wilco song ever. favoritest) has been doing this very important thing, and you should all sort of know about it, if you don't already.
there's this series, Get To Know Your Blogger, which i enjoy quite a bit, and it's for reasons perfectly exemplified in the most recent edition. this interview with San Diego Serenade is one of the best i've read so far - i guess it's what i would expect coming from Conor, who's one of the better blog writers out there. i want to quote something here, though:
How important do you think music blogs are in general? Do you think they will continue to be as popular as they are today?
whoaaaaa. Conor, my friend, holy crap. you said the words i was having a lot of trouble articulating.
his point is absolutely perfect. i read an article in the Phoenix a while back with this exact same point (you can read that here, and i highly recommend it). they went on about sites like YouTube and even mentioned said the gramophone, largehearted boy, and an aquarium drunkard. they ask the question: when are we going to get hit for free mp3s? when will we start to pay?
it's stuff to chew on. and it's important, because if you're reading this, chances are you're involved with a blog. and i think they're right. this is the magic moment - breathe it in, guys. because the heavy hammer could come down on the fun at any minute.
anyway. if you want to read everything done for the get to know your blogger series, well there you go. i just linked you to it.
NOTE: as much as toaster loves free music, he'd like to encourage you to buy the cds of the artists you enjoy. he'd also like to remind you that any music hosted by or linked to from this page is property of its respective owners, so if that's you and you'd like it to not be here, just let us know.
READ ME: if files are not working properly upon opening or saving [ex: unknown file type], make sure that there is a .mp3 at the end of the filename, and all will be well.
also: all files posted will only remain available for two to three weeks. if you find something in an old post that you'd really like to hear, tell us.
be our god damn myspace friend. damn it.
love for these blogs
