The following is taken from Songs:Illinois (see the sidebar for link). A lot of music bloggers are pushing to get people to go out and vote, and frankly I couldn't agree more. Get out there and do it. This election is going to be close and, I suspect, very divisive (Like this country could be any more divided) even after all the ballots are counted. Don't throw your vote away, use it, cast it.





Hey!! Stop what you're doing! You're not going to find that Arcade Fire live bootleg today, nor will you be stumbling across the b-side to "Hand In Glove", and there's no way you'll be finding that unreleased Pixies album. What you need to do is get ready to vote in the most important election of our lives. Figure out where your nearest polling place is and make sure you are registered. Tell your friends to vote, tell your enemies for that matter. But just vote.

Worried that you're not informed enough to vote? You're on the internet - the information is out there waiting for you. Not a U.S. citizen? Then please call or email all your American friends and make sure they plan on voting. Many artists/organizations are stepping up and helping with the Get Out the Vote campaign, and now so are many of us in the music blogging community. Below are some links but please continue to add your own.

And since this is an mp3blog we've added a song or two as well.
Vote by Chris Stamey w/Yo La Tengo

From me I've added The Creekdippers' (w/Victoria Williams and Mark Olson from the Jayhawks) "Poor GW"

Eminem's powerful new video for Mosh

Get Out And Vote On November 2nd. Regular Blogging Will Commence On November 3rd.

Thanks,

I think I am more into Bicycle blogs than music blogs....

I may try to get some sound samples from my bicycle and post them.

TRACK 1: Knobbies on Asphalt
TRACK 2: My Brakes Need to be Toed (towed?) In! (often improperly refered to as; Did you hear that squeak?)
TRACK3: Slow Leak.....

etc.

buy the CD
can't give you all the TRACKS for free

Joel, we've all got our passions. Yours is certainly bicycles. I actually love the idea of having sound files of the noises that your bike makes. That'd be kinda cool
