  • Next to "blogger" in the dictionary, they should carry a picture of Jeannette. Her interests span all the arts, and her posts are fascinatingly personal. She has a cinematic eye for daily detail, is a mom of four, and she blogs every single day.

  • Jim's blog has always been a personal inspiration, and just when I thought I had his vast repertoire of interests pegged, he recently laid on us a rock-solid essay on, yes, economics.

  • If you didn't see Michael's desert island discs post, you absolutely need to.

  • Ben and I may not agree on this movie but man is he fun to read.

  • Mosey on over to Tuwa's Shanty for some MP3 goodies of Modern Lovers and Junior Walker, served to the accompaniment of Laurence Olivier in The Marathon Man.

  • Sarah on vibrato taboo. (When I hit the end of the first paragraph, I felt a little shiver. You'll see why.)

  • Precious words from Tom Waits.

  • Alas, it's not online but there is a fantastic essay on Hou Hsiao-Hsien by James Quandt in the new Artforum that is worth driving to the bookstore or library for.

Thanks for the mention. Too kind, as always (I just wish I could write about music as well as Sean at StG).

Tofu John is awesome too. Nice story he told.

Tuwa--At first glance, I mistook the Junior Walker "Roadrunner" for the old Bo Diddley tune, but I guess they're different songs. (btw, there's a killer version of the latter sung by REM bassist Mike Mills on the Backbeat soundtrack. Greg Dulli of Afghan Whigs sings the Lennon stuff. Great soundtrack.)

That Modern Lovers track is okay, but if you're going to have the gall to cover "Sister Ray" by the Velvet Underground, you should at least admit it's a cover.
