Piece Of Crap

This is the name I have affectionately given my laptop, when after 3 years of (not quite) loyal service, it could no longer take the strain of housing a monsterous PJ bootleg collection, and died, hence the lack of updates for the last week or so.

It also happens to be the name of a Neil Young song he performed with PJ way back in 1994 at the Bridge School Benefit concerts, notable for being the first shows Jasck Irons played with the band. Check It Out:

Anyway, now I'm back, so lets go over the all the important (and the not so important) news in PJ world from the last 7 days.

Eddie's song Guaranteed has been nominated for a Grammy. It is in Category 84, Best Song Written For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media, where he shall commence battle with Chris Cornell, who was nominated for You Know My Name for the illustrious prize once dubbed by Mr. Vedder as being 'completely worthless'.

Keep your eyes peeled for the Guaranteed music video to premiere soon as well.

Meanwhile, Stone has been using his recent downtime to plot another Brad show, as part of a Seattle Benefit for presidential candidate Barack Obama. Get tickets here.

In the new Rolling Stone, Jeff tells us how "Pearl Jam's goal every night is "Let's try to be Zep in ' 73, MSG . " They changed it up with every record. When we made Ten, we wanted to be as diverse as possible so we could go any direction we wanted after that, the way they did."

Sticking with the famous magazine, they made up for last weeks lack of PJ inclusion in their top 25 live albums of all time by naming Mother Love Bone's Chloe Dancer/Crown Of Thorns as one of the top 50 songs of all time over 7 minutes long. There were no rankings given.

Also, an upcoming episode of Iconoclasts, which will feature Sean Penn, includes Ed's music from Into THe Wild. Check it out on the Sundance Channel, December 10th.

Finally, in what can barely be passed off as newsworthy, College football player Colt McCoy, 21, quarterback for UT, named Yellow Ledbetter as one of the songs that gets him pumped up during a workout. How this would get you pumped up I've no idea, but he's probably bigger and stronger than me, so I won't argue.
