In a couple of hours I’ll be doing a gig with Maud Newton—we’ll be talking about blogging and the arts. As you might imagine, I’ll be arguing that American newspapers were just about to expand their arts-and-culture sections so as to make room for in-depth review essays on contemporary literature, theater, art and music when the Internet came along and destroyed everything. But if you have any other suggestions, make ‘em fast.
In other news, I am shocked and saddened to learn that the Beatles have appeared in a photograph with a marijuana pipe. I fear for what this will mean for our impressionable young children. Don’t those boys realize they are role models?
Last but not least, this is really weird.
