I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around,
and don't let anybody tell you different

April already?

Some April fool's jokes and hoaxes from the music sites I frequent:

Housequake.com gives us an exclusive interview with Prince, but give it away all too easily by quoting Prince as verily speaking the unspeakable:

"I also loved to play with some old friends again. Sheila E., Michael B., Lisa, Wendy and of course it's great to have Tony M back too."

R.E.M.'s official website announces the band's "Wetness Rules" Tour in Europe this summer:

Following their legendary New Zealand "lakeside” performance on Saturday night, R.E.M. announced today that its upcoming European shows will be an “all wet” affair: every show will feature a front row pond (3’-5’ deep) so that completely crazed fans, as well as others just hot or tired, can enjoy a total immersion front row experience.
Plus, R.E.M. is ON! announces "Waiting to Happen", Peter Buck's upcoming solo album.

Also: Une Fille du Limmatquai points us to the Top 100 April Fool’s Day Hoaxes of all Time. And Gmail goes Infinity+1.

Aber de bescht isch ja wohl folgendes Email vom Benji gsi - en ewige Klassiker (mindestens siit 1995!):

ich verreck, jetzt bauets wükli en mc, ide nöchi vom bellevue!!!
und zwar chunt ja s kino bellevue use und döt chömed so schiggi miggi wohnige ihne und nebed dra um de ecke en mc donalds!!!

Alright, back to English and back to seriousness. Just wanted to say I might not be blogging for a while - Natalie Portman and Katie Holmes asked me to be their personal masseur on their private yacht for the next 14 days. Will post reports, pics and (hopefully) videos once I get back.
