There hasn’t been much to cheer for if you’ve been a fan of the New York Knickerbockers over the last decade or so. While the once mighty franchise has struggled, there is now a reason to watch them – for the beginning of their on Friday night games on MSG at least – as they will feature a new song and video from Robert Randolph & The Family Band. The song, called Get There, features personalized lyrics about New York and the Knicks from Randolph who’s been a lifelong fan of the team. While we’re not too sure how good the Knicks will fare, we’ll put our money down that the song will be a lot better than Go New York, Go New York Go.

Finally, while everything was coming up The Beatles this September – between the long awaited remasters and video game – the Fab Four’s catalog was still missing from digital retailers. Well, in a step that might signify that they will soon be headed in that direction Apple Corps. and EMI will release a limited edition USB drive featuring the entire Beatles in Stereo remastered set as 320 Kbps MP3s on December 8th. All 14 albums and 13 “mini-documentaries” will be included on the 16GB USB drive, which will be shaped like the iconic Apple logo with “The Beatles” written on it with only 30,000 of them to be produced. Very cool concept.
