Problem World!

More substantial than Twitter, less labored-over than an actual blog (and if you’ve been following this site you might be able to tell that I don’t enjoy laboring over blog posts). My tumblr page will probably wind up becoming my main base of talking-about-substantial-stuff operations. Update yr links accordingly.

Apparently I’m pretty good at blogging consistently if it’s < 140 characters at a time. Also when it’s in the service of blabbing about weird YouTube music stuff.

(More stuff to show up here later, incl. but not limited to my 2008×100 tracklisting and I don’t know some other junk, we’ll see)

Though not necessarily here, per se: I’m instituting a new feature on City Pages’ music/pop culture blog Gimme Noise, dubbed The Popstream. It’s nothing complicated or revolutionary — I find a obscure/cool/weird music-related clip on YouTube, post it and review it — but I’m pretty partial to the whole format of blurbing a single song in 200ish words.

Speaking of which. I’ve got a few contributions to the Pitchfork 500 book, and hopefully nobody will find it weird that I give glowing endorsements to both Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth and Depeche Mode.

One of Stax’s finest songwriters, an icon of R&B, composer and performer of “Theme from ‘Shaft'”, the man who gave us the greatest-ever versions of “Walk on By” and “Runnin’ Out of Fools” and “By the Time I Get to Phoenix”, star of Truck Turner, Wattstax headliner and all around great musician.

(Also word has it he was in some cartoon show or something, but who gives a shit about that.)

Here’s some visual documentation of my time at the fest. I took a ton of photos, but these are the ones that turned out good and weren’t too redundant.

’07 year-end stuff should start sometime next week (Monday, fingers crossed). In the meantime, please enjoy this clip of the chase scene from Bullitt. An abridged version. With an alternate soundtrack.
