Singer Jailed for Robbery?
Punkbands reports: Horse The Band vocalist Nathan Winneke was reportedly jailed yesterday in the Toronto area following an incident at a gas station. At 5 am Lambgoat received the following email from group keyboardist Erik Engstrom: "Nathan our singer was taken to jail tonight after our show with Dragonforce in Toronto on suspicion of robbing a gas station and firing a pistol at a woman. 

Nathan has been reading Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry and got way into it, thinking he is the main character, Gus. He drinks a bottle of whiskey a day and bought a cap gun which he took the orange thing off of and a 12 inch bowie knife which he named 'blue duck.' Every night when he is drunk he fires the cap gun in the air and runs around screaming. Tonight at the gas station he had just fallen out the side door of the van. He climbed back in laughing hysterically, and shot his cap gun into the air twice. We left the gas station. Two minutes later I was lying face down in the middle of the freeway handcuffed with a handgun and a shotgun pointed at my head. [is it real? It is a hoax? We don't know but it was fun so we posted, you can read more about this "horse play" at the full story link] - Click Here for the Full Story

hecklerspray reports: Remember when you heard the news that Michael Jackson had signed up with a Bahrain record company to release a new album on that would usher in a new golden age of Michael Jackson greatness?

Yeah, that's not happening any more. For some reason that only Michael Jackson knows, Michael Jackson has left Two Seas, the Bahrain record label, and is setting up his own company - inventively called The Michael Jackson Company - to possibly release his new album on next year. At least with Michael Jackson naming his company after himself, the eight or nine people in the world who would actually buy a new Michael Jackson album will find his CD just a little more easily[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Lime Wire Vs RIAA
music.tinfoil reports: Lime Wire has decided to fight fire with fire. Rather than simply defending itself against the RIAA's lawsuit against them, they have decided that the best defense is a good offfense.

Enough cliches there? I thought so. First it plans to demonstrate that it is markedly different from Napster as it is truly decentralized. The company also states that by clicking the "I Agree" bit when installing the software, the user agrees to use it only for legal purposes, so if the user is using the software for evil then it surely can't be Lime Wire's fault, right? Grokster tried that one, it didn't work.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
