  • I would just like to point out that I just imdb'd this and saw that Crispin Glover and My Hollywood Girlfriend Lizzy Caplan are also slated to appear, and therefore it is probably already my vote for movie of the year 2010.

  • Mountain Goat John Darnielle on California's elimination of domestic violence shelter funding: "I spent Christmas & New Year's Eve of 1983 in a motel with my mother & my sister; we were lucky. My mom had a job. When I consider that mothers & sons & daughters without the means to get themselves into a Motel 6 might have to spend a night with their abusers after having found the strength to flee — well, I wish I had a turn of phrase that describes what it feels like to think of people in such situations, but I don't."
  • Daniel Johnston, Unicorns, Zombies, Beulah, Microphones — Michael Cera likes good music. But you probably already knew that.

  • Hey, remember Zak Sally, you know, he played bass in Low back in the day? And how he does comics and stuff? Well he just put together a solo album called Fear of Song, and hand printed/glued/numbered/signed/packaged every single one real beautifully. You should look/listen here and then probably order it.

  • "After a couple years of promises, LOCAL CURRENCY, a compilation of singles by Franklin Bruno, is back from the manufacturer and in hand. A bonus: everyone who orders gets a free EP of Franklin covers by Mac McCaughan, Laura Cantrell, Lou Barlow, and Jennifer O'Connor. It's really good. But wait, there's more. I don't have it yet, but the first 150 to order will also receive a free 7" of never-before-heard songs by Franklin."

  • Byrne on U2's mega-multi-360-sensurround-spider stage show: "It could be professional envy speaking here, but it sure looks like, well, overkill, and just a wee bit out of balance given all the starving people in Africa and all." Which, weirdly, is the exact same immediate gut reaction I had, starving Africans and all.

  • The first downloadable track off the Mtn Goats newest album, and the full name of the Brandon that Darnielle once thought I was.
