Friday Diversion

A little something to help you nurse 2-nights-worth of NXNE's binge drinking hangover. As always, here is some of the best reading I've come across over the past little while. And if you think I'm doing any more than giving the token links at 2:30 in the morning after watching 5 bands-worth on a Thursday night, you're out of your mind.

A&C not just BSS
By Benjamin Boles

Most of the reason that I'm currently in the state I'm in.

The Power Game
By Wright Thompson

Ballin' with the Barack. I, for one, could not be more thrilled with the fact that basketball is at long last replacing golf as the go-to game in the world of high-powered politicians and professionals.

Show or Tell
By Louis Menand

A history of Creative Writing programs. Can the art form be taught? Let's explore the subject, shall we?

By the way, if you were planning on hitting up NXNE in Toronto this weekend, could not possibly recommend any stronger that you check out The Bahamas at Supermarket at 10:00 pm Friday night. They are ridiculously good.

The YouTube clip of the week needs to be clicked HERE in order to be viewed. It is Springsteen's Walk Like A Man, performed live at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA, in May of 1988.

Happy Father's Day, Dad.
