Dickie's Quickies

Michael Bérubé has asked readers to weigh in on who should have been a one hit wonder. You know, that band or person who had the one song you begrudingly admit was great and the rest of their output turned out to be drivel? Weigh in on the topic in the comments section.

SXSW music festival
has a really cool promo going on this year. They have posted a link to a BitTorrent file containing all 750 songs submitted by bands appearing there this year. You get 1 high quality mp3 by each band, which comes to 2.6 GB. Or you can download the 30 second samples at 345 MB. For those unfamiliar with BitTorrents, the more people who are downloading this puppy the faster it will go. Even though 2.6 GB is a very large file, it's a great way to get to know some of the acts at the festival.
