Kid606 is the world's preeminent laptop revolutionary. His latest CD is The Action Packed Mentalist Brings You the Fucking Jams.
Amoeba - Growing up around wackass San Diego record stores turned me into a Napster-loving, music-stealing MP3 freak. Amoeba makes my music habit legal. (2455 Telegraph Ave., Berkeley. 510-549-1125)
The Smokehouse - The perfect stopping point between Amoeba and my house, where I try not to get sauce on my CDs. (3115 Telegraph Ave., Berkeley. 510-845-3640)
Nation's Giant Hamburgers & Great Pies - At least one thing on this list has to sound patriotic. (Various locations)
Giant Burger, the Grand Lake Kwik Way, Everett & Jones, Top Dog, Art's Crab Shak, and all other places where meat is served - Before Kid606 can sit down with stacks of wax and make music, he must first sit down before platters of meat. Don't come at me with that vegan shit.
Berkeley Free Clinic - For always providing service with a smile and swiftly delivering STD results before tours. (2339 Durant Ave., Berkeley. 510-548-2570)
