The ‘Fork festival is going on in Chicago, and a bunch of bloggers went. You, probably, did not go. Me neither. Now I am reading the aforementioned bloggers’ roundups (and rounding them up myself). So you don’t have to. (I like the part about the dragons!!!)
ListeNerd Maxim: The amount you have to do will steadily decrease until you are dead. Onward.
*Byron Crawford – On Cat Power: “I realized it’s hardly a revelation to note that someone who works part time as a model looks really impressive, but she does.”
*Stereogum – On Clipse: “Hipster’s choice for coke-rap record of the year Hell Hath No Fury has its anthems, and we got ’em yesterday.”
*More Cowbell – On getting there late and missing Sonic Youth: “We didn’t reach our destination until around 10pm, and our hosts for the weekend weren’t home yet. We sat in a parking garage and ate processed powdered and chocolate donuts, ok?”
*Muzzle of Bees – On Dan Deacon: “The madness made people climb trees, press were clamoring to the tops of fences to get decent pictures, all while Dan politely begged for a little more room so he could ‘rock louder than four hundred dragons.'”
