Shorties

Reel Radio has archived radio broadcasts going back fifty years. (via Ned via waxy)

"Killers and Stars is simply amazing, a stark, acoustic song cycle that peels back the nerves of the human condition with bristling intensity and wit." The Memphis Commercial Appeal gushes over Patterson Hood's solo album, Killers & Stars, giving it four stars. (registration requires, in cases like these, remember bugmenot.com)

My first post is up at A Million Love Songs, a short piece about "Sugar, Sugar" and why the song is significant for me.

"I love hearing people complain ó especially when thereís nothing I can do about it. Back pain or the health system ó great, Iím all for it. I want to hear people complain while I do little tasks for them." The Dallas Voice interviews David Sedaris, whose book, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, is released Tuesday.

"'He's happy and I don't just mean happy in a not-suicidal way,' explained one member of Morrissey's entourage who wished to remain anonymous. 'He's like Little Morrissey Sunshine.'" Deadbrain dishes some Morrissey satire.

"While the rest of the DC stood rooted to the spot, Angus duck-walked his way around the stage like a depraved goblin Chuck Berry, dripping rivers of sweat as he methodically, ritually disrobed. We duck-walked with our air guitars around Alex's room, careful not to skip the needle." The Guardian publishes an excerpt from Seb Hunter's Hell Bent for Leather: Confessions of a Heavy Metal Addict.

Thanks to the people who recommended China Mieville's Perdido Street Station as the 24th book of the year in my 52 Books, 52 Weeks project.
