Wolfgang’s Vault

This past week I've learned of the most awesome site if you like (primarily) classic rock.  It's the Concert Vault at Wolfgang's Vault.

So what is it you ask?  Well, legendary concert promoter Bill Graham apparently taped large numbers of the shows he promoted.  These are recordings that were taken direct from the soundboards and are of amazing quality.  There are literally hundreds of shows already online and it grows every week.  We're talking classic groups in their early and prime days.  How about The Who in 1968?  Or ELP in the mid-70's?  Or maybe The Cars in 1978 just as they are about to hit the big time.  Yeah, you can go now.  :)

Bravo NBA

I am not a basketball fan by any stretch and actually I have never really liked it at all.  But I will give the NBA credit for doing something that other leagues often don't do.  That is listening to the players and righting an apparent wrong that they made when they switched to a synthetic ball.  Kudos to you David Stern for listening and going back to the old leather balls. [Insert your own crude joke here.]
