23 Seconds, 23 Magic - for $999?

I've always wondered about the mystery of Blonde Redhead's lyrics to the title track of their newest album, "23". Daphne Carr of interviewed Blonde Redhead vocalist Kazu Makino who said, "'23' is sort of my magic number. I don't know what it means, but I seem to be surrounded by it. The album is full of ideas that derived from things that have been close to me for a while, and the number 23 is one of those things." While Carr is disappointed by the sound of '23', I find it quite magical. In fact, if I were to have one song playing for me as I die, this would be the one. Tomorrow, I may be able to find out when that will be.

A Bay Area company called will launch a service tomorrow that will provide you with a complete report of your DNA. For $999, the company will reveal the secrets of the 23 pairs of chromosomes you possess, give you a break-down of your genetic 'hand-me-downs' from your family tree, and identify certain diseases that you may be at risk of developing. Perhaps this '23' is yet another element of Kazu Makino's magical number.

It's About Time A Rock Band Made Another Deal With The Devil

Last night I went to go see Portugal. The Man. I've been listening to their new album, Church Mouth, incessantly for the past few months. The album is somewhat different than their previous releases incorporating a classic southern-blues rock vs. a rock-synth combination. In my opinion each album/ep is better than their last. On 'Church Mouth' you might initially hear a White Stripes influence, but the sound is bigger than that; perhaps it is what the White Stripes would have liked to achieve if 1/2 their band was a bit more talented. On the other hand, I've read reviews that discuss how Portugal. The Man is influenced by Led Zeppelin. Great. Saying that a rock band is influenced by Led Zeppelin is like saying the Pope is influenced by Jesus Christ.

But it is a valid comparison; and a comparison that even the most discriminating music lovers will agree with especially after seeing them perform live. As a group, Portugal. The Man, is incredibly tight and each member plays like he is trying to out-do the musical awesomeness coming from the band mates around him, and that was fun to see. Cliches aside, while you will hear the influences of greats like Led Zeppelin, Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, Santana and Black Sabbath, the band continues to exhibit the fruits of their musical experimentation which may or may not be the direct result of a faustian bargain.
