Shorties (Radiohead, Anthony Bourdain, and more)

Radiohead released a fan-made concert film of the band's August 23, 2009 Prague performance.

The Irish Times profiles Anthony Bourdain and his new book, Medium Raw.

The Financial Times profiles author Gary Shteyngart.

Gary Shteyngart is one of those rare writers who is as funny and resplendent in person as he is on the page. Which does make one wonder how he gets his motivation to write, since he could just sit around having lunch. Before we are finished he will put on several different accents – Italian, Russian and a couple of others – invent six different characters and speak for them, and neatly cycle through several comic motifs, so it will kind of feel, by the time we leave the restaurant, as if I have just put down a lively short story.
