by Josh Kimball

*There’s a Coachella webcast, for those of you still behind your computers. It’s very ad-heavy. [more cowbell]

*The lineup for the Pitchfork Music Festival has been announced. Also, I am old and poor.

*Countertrend (local): The Mill City Live (free outdoor music) slate has been announced. [switchblade comb]

*More on Grand Theft Auto’s music store (and other music ties) from Scientific American. [mediaeater]

*Starbucks and in-store music apparently no longer mix.

*Countertrend: Midlake guitarist launching his own line of coffee. [getty images]

*Madonna’s new album, the execrable (surely?) “Hard Candy” is streaming on her MySpace page prior to its official release. [mashable]

*Amy Winehouse was arrested for headbutting a guy outside a London bar, but she was not charged by police. Headbutting. [huff po]

*The Dead are history. (They’re donating a bunch of old stuff – not their recordings, though – to a university library in Santa Cruz.

*Add your (or others’) twitters to your online calendar with Twistory. What people do with Twitter data is getting more and more interesting. (My relatively boring Twitter stream is here, fwiw.) [techcrunch]

*I will post less boring things soon. Also, this is my 1,000th. In under a year. Lots of stupid videos, but still. Goodbye.
