*Buskers: The New York Times addresses the tragic death of Seattle’s Tuba Man. Sad story. I still love the term “busker.”
*Metal: In what Metal Sucks (and I’m not one to argue with such experts as they on this matter) has dubbed “the second most metal video of all time,” the following video consists of two guys drinking beer and punching each other. For like 6 minutes.
*Interviews: Watch Okkervil River’s singing interviews on Stereogum. No, really. Watch.
*Professional: I have a Linked In group called Professionals in Support of Clarity, Levity and Brevity. I don’t know why. YET.
