Since sifting through dull newspapers, hyperbolic blogs, and overflowing RSS feeds for meaningful news can be an arduous process, News Net catches and compiles both the amusing and the significant reports that were overlooked throughout the long holiday weekend.
• You remember that story we did on Milwaukee noise-music maestro Peter Woods soliciting donations for the release of his new album? Well, never mind—Woods just gave us word that Minneapolis label After Music Records will be putting out the record in February.
• While we strongly encourage shopping locally this holiday season, one advantage to shopping online is that there’s no sales tax on out-of-state purchases. However, that might change—according to the Journal Sentinel, the state loses $150 million in revenue each year because it can’t collect these taxes.
• Pavement’s knockout performance at the Pabst Theater in September tops local blog Muzzle Of Bees’ top 30 list of the year’s best concerts. (We’re pretty sure it’s going to make our list, too, when it comes out in December.)
