Oh no, I'm going to the Tampa show. I hope that doesn't get affected either.

Haven't heard anything myself. Yes, he was a heroin addict, sober since around Yoshimi, I believe. If you want to see a heartbreaking scene depicting his addiction at its lowest, he allowed himself to be taped shooting up and discussing his addiction in the Fearless Freaks. But, at this point, there's no reason to speculate it has anything to do with that. He seemed fine and in great spirits last week though, so the news was especially a shock to me, having seen them live so recently and nothing seeming wrong.

Sorry if that came out a bit smackdown-ish. Not at all how I meant it. The Fearless Freaks is one of the best music documentaries I've ever seen, and that scene, like I said, is crushing. I can't believe he let himself be taped doing it, but that kind of honesty is also kind of what makes me love the Lips. I mean, Coyne and everybody are talking about how they legitimately thought Drozd was going to die in the middle of filming Christmas on Mars and that they were planning on what to do/how to replace him if it came to that. Fucking poignant and agonizing stuff, really. If you can track it down, definitely, definitely check it out.

sounds intense... my interest in this band grows. there's a video of John Frusciante talking about shit, but that's immediately after he shot up, no footage of him actually going under.

still waiting on a call about the status of my Embryonic vinyl

Seconding the rec for that documentary - it's what got me interested in the band, as I'd just known one or two of their songs up until then.

Still vague news, but he's going to be fine:

Not sure if you saw this or not, LMP: Pitchfork: The Flaming Lips Reschedule Shows

Looks like all of the Florida shows got rescheduled in October. All tickets for the shows are being honored. Still a pretty huge bummer, though.

I did see this, thank you. Hopefully I'll be able to drive down and see the show.

planning on buying the Soft Bulletin 10th anniversary vinyl... can anyone who has it tell me why there are two discs? on their website it only shows the tracklisting for disc one.
