Artist Phil Szostak (creator of the Largehearted Boy logo) has launched a new blog, Pop Zeus: Creating the Guided By Voices Tribute Comic Book.

Singer-songwriter Julie Doiron talks to NOW Toronto.

"I've been really lucky that so many Eric's Trip fans have stayed with me through the solo years, and with the newer fan base it means I can tour less often and still make a decent go of it."

The Minnesota Daily complains that the recent crop of tribute albums "don't have enough mohawk."

Matthew Caws of Nada Surf talks to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

“What we have now is actually what we had always wanted, the kind of slow buildup of making records and getting fans,” says Caws. “Six months after 'Let Go' came out, one of the guys in charge of Barsuk said, 'Maybe I should check that 'Popular' song out.' He had never heard it. And I think that's great."

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer lists "10 drinkin' songs right up there with Paisley's 'Alcohol.'"

"Why Henry Drinks" by Drive-by Truckers. Kiss-offs don't come much stronger than "hanging with you I know why Henry drinks."

Go Triad features the "confessions of a college-radio DJ."

Popmatters eulogizes hip hop artist and producer Jay Dilla.

Aural new York offers pink iPod earbuds.

My favorite cooking show (even if it is public access in a city where I don't reside), The Post Punk Kitchen, now offers a cookbook, Vegan with a Vengeance. The included blurb from Joan Jett:

"Vegan with a Vengeance is on my kitchen shelf. This fun and creative book is delicious for people like me, who don't eat pets!"

Neil Young and Jonathan Demme discuss about their documentary film, Neil Young: Heart of Gold, with the Chicago Tribune.

"We did a film and created a concert rather than getting a concert that we thought was good and going in and filming it," Young said. "We did it in reverse."

The Kaiser Chiefs won three Brit Awards.

Filter gives some specifics on the new Tilly and the Wall album, Bottoms of Barrels.

Popmatters profiles the current crop of doom metal bands.

In the New Yorker, Sasha Frere-Jones reviews the Yeah yeah Yeahs second album, Show Your Bones.

The entire record seems hopeful. It is rife with cheery catchphrases—“we’re just another part of you,” “good things happen in bad towns”—and tremulous guitar parts.

The Vonnegut Web is "the most expansive, yet wholly unauthorized, Kurt Vonnegut site in the cosmos."

IGN lists the 25 greatest Batman graphic novels (in an old link).
