- A reader alerted me to Mike Doughty's new cover of Neutral Milk Hotel's "King of Carrot Flowers" available on iTUNES. I haven't listened yet though because I'm on my work computer.
- Blue States Lose: Tale of Two Cities' Dos and Don'ts is the reason the internet was invented, and the only thing that can get me online on a summer-hours Friday afternoon. Go back and read all of them if you haven't already (ignore the one about my roommate though. she rules, as evidenced by how cool she was about it.) This happened the other day:
Friend: "Have you read Tale of Two Cities?"
(a few seconds pass.)
Me: "Unless you're talking about the website."
Uh, oops! My apologies to Mr. Dickens.
