Here at marlboromarathonrunners we consider ourselves to be a family. And, in six minutes, one of our family members will be celebrating his birthday. The person in question is our own beloved Caleb Keys. Over the past couple of years Caleb has been like a brother to me, and I am happy to call him my best friend. I know we’ve had our ups and downs, but Caleb is seriously one of the nicest, most down to earth people you could ever meet and it has been a privilege to be his friend. Heres to many more birthdays my friend!
Dr. Mad 69 has cooked up a new track for all you boys and girls out there. The track is entitled “Atari Bombs” and features some of “the docs” best work to date. Also, Dr. Mad 69’s new myspace is up and running if you want to check out some of his tracks. Enjoy.
This years ACL Festival lineup is a major letdown. The first thing that should be pointed out is how similar to Bonnaroo this years lineup is. Last year there were a ton of artists that I was excited to see, but, as of now, Beck is the only artist I’m even slightly excited about seeing this year. This years lineup lacks some of the bands that made the last couple of years so great. I mean sure, Stars, Jenny Lewis, M. Ward, and a few other very talented artist will playing the festival, but there isn’t much else to look forward to in my opinion. I know many will disagree with my opinion, but it seems that ACL is lacking this year.

Here it is guys every letter of the alphabet minus x. It was really hard to narrow it down to just 25 songs, but i feel like this playlist reflects me.
In an impromptu press conference held earlier today, Dr. Mad 69 announced plans to release a series of several albums chronicling the lives of his closest friends and relatives. This ambitious plan has already begun to be compared to Sufjan Stevens 50 states project, with the only difference being that Dr. Mad 69 will most certainly deliver on his promise to complete the series of albums, whereas Sufjan has already reneged on his promise.
Rumors have been circulating around the blogosphere that both Satchmo Flask and Dr. Mad 69 will be playing the Austin City Limits music festival this year. Although the lineup has yet not been announced, the two artist’s label, Truffle Hunter Records, has confirmed that both artist will indeed be playing this year’s festival. Caleb Keys, the head of Truffle Hunter Records, recently said in a press release, “This is an exciting time for the label. With both Dr. Mad 69 and Satchmo Flask on the bill for ACL, we should be getting some much deserved attention. Hopefully people will be impressed by the label’s already stellar roster, and more bands will want to sign with us.”
Andy, I have a few suggestions as to who should open for Zeppelin. I think that that duo known only as Daft Punk should open for Zeppelin. But actually, instead, Zeppelin should open for Daft Punk! Arguably the two greatest bands in the world, with Daft Punk being #1 because, of course, they have remixed themselves and Zeppelin has not. Now I know some of you will consider my view to be blasphemous, but I dare you to listen to Daft Punk’s Alive 2007 album and not rock out harder than you ever did to Zeppelin. Also, I think that if Daft Punk is not available to play then Dr. Mad 69 would be a good alternative.
