Yesterday's additions to the constantly updated master list of online 2007 music lists:

NPR's All Songs Considered (listeners poll)

The New York Times examines "the continuing cult of Glenn Gould."

TIME interviews author Stephen King.

Why do you think filmmakers are so fond of your work?

It's visual. I grew up at the movies. I went to movies before I wrote. My first editor Bill Thompson used to laugh and say "Steve King has a movie projector in his head." Filmmakers react to that. They see, because they're visual creatures themselves, and they say, "Gee, I'd love to do that." In some cases they run their heads into the noose, because it's easier to make it up in your mind than it is on the screen.

The New York Times recommends recently released music boxed sets.

NPR's All Things Considered interviews author Nick Hornby about his new young adult novel, Slam.

Drowned in Sound interviews Aaron Hemphill of Liars.

The Guardian's books blog examines the comics blogosphere.
