Of The Goddamn Internet

DOWNLOAD THIS:
EverAd's Play J is offering downloads of an exclusive Wyclef Jean track. The song, which has yet to be selected, will not appear on Jean's just-released second solo album "The Ecleftic: 2 Sides II A Book." A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Wyclef Jean Foundation, the artist's non profit charity which helps provide music therapy, instruments and lessons to children and young adults. The track will be available for 45 days on the Play J site, as well as Web affiliates including Launch.com. Meanwhile, fans of Cajun country singer/songwriter Lisa Angelle can download "A Woman Gets Lonely" from her self-titled DreamWorks Records Nashville debut. The album will be available for downloads in two-song bundles every other week until Oct. 3, and will be available in its entirety on 10/31. Liquid Audio is distributing the downloads via its Liquid Music Network, and allows fans to preview album art, photos and liner notes. Angelle has penned hits for Wynonna, Kathy Mattea and Trisha Yearwood when she's not busy wrasslin' gators in the Bayou.

SINGING THE BLUES:
Music e-tailer CDNow is getting ready to debut its exclusive Web session with blues legend Taj Mahal. The artist will appear on the site's Center Stage Sept. 5, and can be viewed for six weeks. The exclusive footage includes a special interview with Bonnie Raitt, who was lured to the studio under the guise of eating shrimp cocktails and playing nickel slots at the Atlantic City casino.

BRIDGING THE GAP:
Web space provider i-drive has launched features that allow users to interact between desktop applications and the Internet. Through i-drive, users can create MP3 playlists and stream music without downloading flies to their desktop. Photo albums can also be created and shared on the Web. Users can save and retrieve files stored on I-drive from Microsoft Office applications. Its creators say they hope their programs will help stop the violence between the desktop and the Internet.

BECAUSE YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MUCH SPICE GIRLS NEWS:
BBC America and Virgin Entertainment Group have come together to form The Britbeat, a music news and entertainment site catering to Anglophiles. The site offers British music and culture news, artist chats and contests. In addition, Radio Free Virgin features The Brit Beat radio channel. Said Virgin Megastore Online general manager/senior vice president Dave Alder: "It's just like visiting London, but without the bland food and bad teeth."

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO GOING TO CLASS?:
Tailgate parties and keggers are so last millennium to today's college students. The big activity is file-swapping on Napster. According to Pennsylvania State University's Daily Collegian and Washington State University's Daily Evergreen, students on both campuses are still using the controversial service to download music. Students waited to return to campus to take advantage of the high-speed connections offered by most schools. Oregon State University, Brown University and Northwestern have stuck to their bans of the file-sharing program. According to one university spokesperson: "We like our students to get their entertainment the old-fashioned way--fraternity hazings and date rape."
