The Flaming Lips - War Pigs

Wow. I saw the Flaming Lips over the weekend at Brown University, and like always it is one of the most exciting, elaborate, and flat out fun shows that anyone can see. I still hold them as the best live act I've ever seen. My first time seeing the Lips was about a half a year ago at the Bank of America Pavillion in Boston. That however was a night time show and due to venue restrictions, Wayne couldn't do the bubble bit. I was especially excited for that this show, as well as how their performance would be without the emphasizing ability of a light show (as this was a day event.) It worked out great, and with the giant ballons drifting their way through the audience, the gorgeous spring day made for a vastly superior setting compared to a covered venue. This was their setlist:

Ta Da! (w/ Wayne in Bubble)
Race for the Prize
Fight Test
Free Radicals
Yoshimi Pt. 1 (w/ Singalong)
Yoshimi Pt. 2
Vein of Stars (w/ Firebird)
The Yeah Song (w/ Singalong)
Taps/Waitin' for a Superman
She Don't Use Jelly (w/ Singalong)
Do You Realize??
A Spoonful Weighs a Ton

There were of course dancing aliens/ santas, confetti shotguns, confetti cannons, dozens of giant balloons, giant hands, a nun puppet...the list is endless. It's a blast, that's what it is.

For this entry's song, I'm using a Flaming Lips' cover of Black Sabbath's War Pigs. They played this at first Flaming Lips show last year. However this version comes from Austin City limits and features Cat Power as a guest vocalist.

I also got to hang out with Wayne Coyne for a bit after the show. He seems to love meeting people, as he was incredibly gracious the whole time. I talked to him alone for a good three minutes, though for a good while the conversation was group based, with everyone having a say. Some of the topics brought up were the Yoshimi musical, the woman who died by drinking too much water, Grey's Anatomy, the Teletubbies (by me), Bonnaroo, and heads exploding. Man...what a night.

My iPhone screen is messed up and I was wanting to repair it. But I don't understand looking at it exactly what the LCD and the digitizer look like. Also, what exactly does the digitizer do?

I realize that one has phone capabilities. But what I"m asking is; Which is better? And if you are going to purchase an Ipod touch, why not just go ahead and get the Iphone? Also, what is the price difference?

This has to be the most useful app I’ve seen in quite a while. I had heard about MyWi before but I thought it was only an app to tether your iPhone so I didn’t even look at it.
