John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats is profiled and interviewed by the Raleigh News and Observer. "People engage so deeply with my stuff that it ends up shaking them internally. But I can defuse a lot of situations by being approachable. It's easy to talk to me, and I don't play much of the unapproachable-artist role except right before a show -- I hate it when people approach me when I'm trying to get my mojo on. Any other time, it's fine. So it's hard for someone to be an obsessive stalker of a guy if he makes himself available. I'm fortunate in that my level of 'fame' is slight enough for that to work. I lead a charmed life."
Kingblind is presenting one of my favorite bands, Japancakes, Wednesday night at the Echo Lounge in Atlanta. Also on the bill are National Grain and Paul Melancon. Stop by and buy Morgan a drink for me (we'll square it up later...).
MF Doom is interviewed by AllHipHop.com. "There’s definitely a second Madvillain album in the works. He would send me a CD and it would have like a hundred beats on it (laughs). The CD would say like '150-250', then I’d get another CD and it would say '250-350'. I got so many Madlib beats that I could do Madvillain albums from now until 2030, kid."
Is Bush Wired? (the weblog)
I've restarted posting pictures to our Flickr account. Stop by if you're feeling voyeurish.
I really don't need a Gucci iPod case, but I'm sure someone does.
Quote of the day from Mike Cooley of the Drive-By Truckers (about the future live dvd of the band's recent record release shows for The Dirty South): "We're trying to do something visual. You can't get arrested these days unless you make a fucking video. I thought it was silly in the 1980s whenever they started that crap and I still think it is. I think we should film a nice landscape with a song over the top of it and they can send me a check."Posted by david on October 09, 2004
