First off, The Next Best Book Blog was kind enough to interview me for their Would You Rather? series. Twas a lot of fun.
Now here's the list of recent P-Mag updates, not quite as long for the time elapsed because they had to move servers not once, but twice:
- Record Machine: Style Council's My Ever Changing Moods. No one commented on this one. Probably because I'm the only one who cares about this band anymore. Go listen/read anyway.
- Record Machine: Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds/UNKLE: "AKA... What a Life!" 12 inch single. Fantastic stuff.
- Record Machine: Michael Jackson's Off The Wall: Don't stop 'til you get enough, man.
- Record Machine: "The Roller" by Beady Eye, limited edition numbered single: The Oasis-like coverage never stops with me.
- Record Machine: Joy Division, The Peel Sessions: Because it is outstanding.
- Record Machine: The Monkees vs. The Beatles: In which I discuss my dad's preference for the "fake" mop-tops over Lennon/McCartney.
- 5 Book Recommendations For Your Reading Pleasure: Short reviews of good books I've read lately by Cheryl Strayed, Gregory Martin, Jami Attenberg, B.A. Shapiro, Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden.
- Book Review: The Ocean at The End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman: Only the second Gaiman book I've read, if you can believe it.
At Word Riot, there are only two Notes From Elsewhere entries:
8-2-13: In which I talk about Calvin & Hobbes, non-literary hubs, Chloe Caldwell, submission news and more.
8-17-13: With the best explanation of the traditional publishing process I've seen yet, "Strong Female Characters," blurbs, book dealbreakers, and more.
Because of some server/security issues, I've had trouble logging into Word Riot lately, so between that and my...uh.. laziness, there haven't been too many posts. I plan on remedying that as soon as the issue is resolved with a lot of posts, partially because I've been bookmarking a ton of links and it would be a shame to not share them. Stay tuned for that.
I think that's everything. I promise to get back on the reviewing train here soon. Thanks for reading.
