Wilco's latest, A Ghost is Born, is freely listenable on the jukebox over at wilcoworld.net

Pop philosopher Mark Kingwell is playing Cupid over at the ROM

Gehry v. Koolhaas in Seattle: first the EMP, now the SPL [looks like it might be difficult to find a cozy corner to read in: too many sharp corners and edges]

Dave Eggers recommends The Tenants of Moonbloom by Edward Lewis Wallant [not sure why, but Eggers' description brings Alasdair Gray's Something Leather to mind... but the copy I read didn't have this racy cover]

Favourite bawdy & blasphemous paragraph of the day:

"More arresting still is Auden's "Chorale", a Berlin-period poem in German that celebrates the cock and balls and blow-jobs of his tough German boyfriend Gert Meyer in slangy Berlin street-demotic to the tune of the Lutheran hymn that forms the chorale in Bach's St Matthew Passion."
