More Important But...

I know there are more important things in the world, but here's more LHK music, film and sports news:

1) In limited Apple stores today, Wes Anderson is releasing his short film "Hotel Chevalier" (starring Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman) as a promotion for his upcoming feature "The Darjeeling Limited". The short will be available FREE tomorrow on iTunes!

2) Just heard Mark Ronson's "re-version" of Bob Dylan's "Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine)" on KCRW, and I'm on the fence about it... It's supposedly the only "official" Bob Dylan re-mix, and it'll be available on the forthcoming greatest hits package "DYLAN: His Greatest Songs" due out on Oct. 2nd.

3) Speaking of the Dub (aka KCRW), they also just played a track from Heavy Trash's recently released album Going Way Out with Heavy Trash.Heavy Trash is one of Jon Spencer's (from the Blue Explosion) side projects, and I feel bad for not mentioning this cd before because I love me some Jon Spencer (and especially since the album has 3 "baby" songs)! He is the definition of sexy, dirty rock!

4) Speaking of music, "Amazon MP3", which is Amazon.com's new digital music store, is up and running.

5) In Robby Ginepri news,

- He participated in a fitness podcast called "Dr. Fitness and The Fat Guy". You can download the free episode from iTunes (released on 9/20/07); he's on towards the end of the show (around 52:20). Trust me, you'll want to skip most of the (boring and shrill) show and just get to Gineps!

- Robby is also participating in yet another exhibition match against Pete Sampras this Saturday, Sept. 29th in the FedEx Shootout in Frisco, Texas.

6) On the topic of my tennis belovEds, Marat Safin recently took a trip to Tibet. I didn't think I could love him more... (Thanks to Erwin for the heads-up).

7) Check out an interesting online version of the official Chelsea FC magazine (with tons of coverage on their recent U.S. summer tour).
