Okay, that's not quite true. But it sure does look that way, hmm? Steve Burns, ex-host of kids TV megahit Blue's Clues has retired his striped shirt, shaved his head and joined the hordes of guitar-slinging young men who prowl the back alleys and clubs of America in search of an indie rock record deal. Good for Steve. That's a career move nobody's thought of before. I'm sure Mom is thrilled.

To his credit, Steve's had the good taste to record with some members of the Flamming Lips and his music is pretty damn cool - kind of strange, orchestrated pop with a fractured song sensibility. I like what I've heard. Hear it yourself by downloading the mp3s at Steve's Web Page.

BTW - thanks to Pseublog for pointing out this bit 'o music news.
