"Galveston" by Glen Campbell. Turns out that before country music shifted thematic focus towards running over Arabs with Ford F-150s, it was pretty great. Listen.
David Cross at the Wilbur Theatre. Amazing new material. They were filming this for a DVD of some kind, so look for that whenever it comes out. Link.
The King of Kong. Engrossing documentary about world-class Donkey Kong competition. It sounds like a socially retarded horror show (and it is), but by the end I actually cared. Link.
Rosshalde by Hermann Hesse. When the stars are properly aligned and my tea leaves deem it appropriate, I will read a book without pictures. It is usually a Hermann Hesse book, and it is never a disappointment. This particular one is about his crumbling family life. Link.
Primary Colours by Eddy Current Suppression Ring. Sophmore effort from Melbourne’s finest. They are also the recipient of this year’s “most difficult to remember band name” award, barely edging out Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci. Listen.
Fatal Faux-Pas by Sam Gaskin. Extremely funny and versatile collection of short pieces by Mr Gascan. He uses a lot of appropriated pop-culture icons, so here’s hoping Fonzie and Spiderman aren’t litigious. Link.
Falling Down (Blu-ray). "Think about it." Link.
You, You’re a History in Rust by Do Make Say Think. Winter’s coming. Time to get the Canadian post rock out of storage. Link.
BFF by Nate Beaty. I have a tremendous amount of admiration for cartoonists who alter their drawing style to suit their content. It’s a rare thing, and BFF does it very, very well. Link.
