In accordance with the prophecies…

…I lied about not posting for a few days.  Two cool things: Jeff Ament (of Pearl Jam) with Doug Pinnick (of King’s X) -and- a free Michael Moore movie Slacker Uprising.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

First things first.  In 2004, Doug Pinnick (bassist/vocals of King’s X) and Jeff Ament (bassist of Pearl Jam) wrapped up an album tentatively titled MontanaIn 2004.  At this point in time, Guns ‘n’ Roses’ Chinese Democracy may come out first.  Jeff & Doug have been friends for a while… at least since way back when King’s X opened up for Pearl Jam.  During PJ’s MTV Unplugged session, Jeff had a big “King’s X” written on his hand (in 1992?).

Anyway, today on Blabbermouth it was dropped that Jeff Ament’s solo album called Tone (pictured above) comes out on Sept 16th via PJ’s Ten Club.  It features Doug Pinnick as guest lead vocals on a track called “Doubting Thomasina.”  It’s limited to 3,000 copies… CD only.  I’m hoping this makes the 15-or-so track Pinnick/Ament album more likely to be released soon.

Also on the news feeds today… Michael Moore‘s next movie, Slacker Uprising, comes out in less than 3 weeks.  And it’s free… sign up at http://www.slackeruprising.com/, and you’ll get a code to watch it free online on Sept 23rd.  You can also buy it on DVD for $9.95.  The online movie and DVD are distributed by Brave New Films, who have put out some other good progressive political films as of late on Wal*Mart, the Iraq war, the 2000 election, et cetera.

Here’s a trailer for the movie:
