screw you guys, i'm doin' a new post
I got tired of adding stuff to today's previous post, so I've started a new one.
So there. Hey, get off my back.
MP3 The New Pornographers - "Twin Cinema"
First off, donewaiting came up huge with the heads up on Matador's posting of the title track & cover art for the forthcoming New Pornographers' record, Twin Cinema. It's what you'd expect from Canada's leading indie power-pop supergroup, though it could use some more Neko. More to come on 8/23.
R.I.P. The 'Bu. At long last, the dudes' much beloved Channel 101 series is dead - but it went out with a bang. Can't wait for Awesometown!
Also, R.I.P. Adult Swim's Sealab 2021. Heads up via bradley's almanac.
I haven't been paying close attention of late, as I totally overlooked the formerly embattled & always excellent blog Moistworks getting a major redesign/reorganization last week. Well done, gentlemen. I likey-likey.
Last nite, the beta version of MNspeak (a sort of mpls-ist) was launched by local bloggers Chuck Blogumentary & Rex Fimoculous. Norwegianity & East Lake were right on top of this yesterday, but I didn't stumble across it until late this afternoon, when my webstats tracked back to the site's local blog aggregator. I'll explore it when I have more time, but it looks cool so far.
I'm not gonna make it to that Gogol Bordello show. Not ka-blamo.
