Sound Advice 

by Inlander Staff & r & Long in the Ear & r & The Long Ear in Coeur d'Alene is celebrating 32 years of existence this week by giving you free stuff. Thursday will feature live music and giveaways. Saturday will forego the music and give away more stuff. Deon over at the Long Ear says they're also trying to wrangle an in-store with Jason Mraz. Don't hold your breath, though, waiting for that rocket to come.





Street Like Meatwad & r & With the success of sci-fi tinged MCs (MF Doom, Quasimodo, Kool Keith, etc.), tons of sucker-ass pretenders have begun to vie for the geek MC throne. We at The Inlander think you'd do well to mind the authenticity of your nerd-rappers. To that end, allow us to endorse MC Chris, whose pedigree is immaculate. Not only does he watch hella cartoons, he helps make them. Formerly a writer on Sealab 2021, he's been a voice actor on Aqua Teen Hunger Force since its first season. The merest sampling of his geek-cred includes the voices of MC Pee Pants, Young Carl, Little Brittle and Sir Loin. He graces Fat Tuesday's on Friday.





Punk Like Shampoo Commercials & r & It's hard to say whether becoming corporate shills is a big deal anymore. I mean, didn't "sellout" used to be a scarlet letter? No longer, it seems. The Postal Service is hawking Volkswagens. U2 is pimping iPods. Now the White Stripes' Jack White is flogging Coke. He justified it to & lt;a href="http://nme.com" & nme & lt;/a & thusly: "I certainly wouldn't want a song that I'd already written to be used on a commercial ... To be asked to write something particular along one theme of love in a worldwide form that I'm not really used to appealed to me." Coke and love in a worldwide form? We think we know that one. Doesn't it go, I'd like to teach the world to sing / in perfect harmony?

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
