For the last four Sundays, I’ve had to make a decision: to watch Mad Men as it airs on AMC at 10pm in standard definition, or wait until sometime tomorrow (most likely not until after work), and watch it on demand in high definition. I usually wait until Monday and watch it in HD (I only watched the season premiere during its normal broadcast time), but I’m kind of bored tonight.

At least next week I get football and Entourage to occupy my Sunday, allowing me to easily push Mad Men off until Monday.

Word has it that Buck 65 is leaking his latest album Dirtbike in three parts, with the first part showing up on the internet yesterday.

The album is formatted like Buck’s early work, with one song flowing into the next like a mixtape.

Download here.

I’ll update with any new info on the album (currently there is none, except for this out of nowhere leak).

Elsewhere, Buck 65 will be starting his hosting duties for CBC Radio 2’s Drive on September 2nd at 3pm.

I’m only about about halfway through, but I’ve already heard enough to highly recommend checking out Travis Barker & DJ AM’s mixtape Fix Your Face.
