another work update post

Hey, a monthly schedule is sometthing.

A quick update on stuff I’ve been doing, for the record:

I interviewed the fascinating Linda Perhacs for the new eMusic-affiliated site Wondering Sound.

I also interviewed Barbara Manning for chickfactor. Under my own name, no less!

At TIME, I wrote about Bruce Springsteen’s High Hopes. (Subscribers only, I’m afraid.)

At Pitchfork, I wrote about the reissue of Morrissey’s Your Arsenal and Laibach’s Spectre. (And, a little while ago, the Velvet Underground’s White Light/White Heat.)

I contributed a bunch of entries to Rolling Stone‘s survey of every Nirvana song, as well as a little piece about some of Kurt Cobain’s favorite records in the Nirvana special issue that’s on sale right now.

The Portland Mercury asked me to recommend a graphic novel; I went the “deep cut” route and suggested Peter Blegvad’s Leviathan.

I programmed playlists of James Brown and his associates for Songza: one of the soul era, one of the funk era.

This Wednesday, Ulises, Ryan, Jen Vaughn and I are going to be reading Judge Dredd: Mega-City Two #1–out loud!–as part of this month’s Comics Underground.

It is a little odd to be typing where I’m typing right now. More sometime when I’m in less cramped quarters.
