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.



All Up In Your Twits

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)



Back to Blogging

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.

“It’s been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this date in this election at this defining moment, change has come to America.”

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.
