Björk - Pluto (available on Homogenic)

B-52's - Hallucinating Pluto (available on Time Capsule)

"In View", The Tragically Hip's first single from their forthcoming album, World Container is now streaming at their website.

A tour film called "Echo & The Bunnymen USA Tour 2006 Film" is now online at, appropriately, enough the Echo & the Bunnymen's website.

The Official Stephen Colbert Green Screen Challenge puts viewers' "Jedi video editing skills" to the test. So far they have pitted Colbert against a wide variety of opponents including Star Wars characters (naturally), bears, children, and himself (hey, what more "formidable opponent" could there be?). The first prize is $500. The winner will be determined by a popular vote, and voting closes on Election Day.

For an unusual, more musically-minded take on the challenge, check out "Colbert Crazy":

Right now "Stephen Colbert vs. Rancor" is in the lead:
