Great new music on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge

If you like great new music, go to YouTube and search for “BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge” and you will get everything from the Arctic Monkeys to the Jonas Brothers and everything in between. It’s rough, it’s eclectic, and it’s great. There’s too much to cover in one blog post, but here’s a sample: the superb Noisettes covering The Killers “When We Were Young”.

Three great things

Nat “King” Cole
Hoagy Carmichael
“Stardust”

Fahrenheit 451


In a time of e-books and other digital technology, it’s important not to lose sight of the greatness of books themselves. I came across this article by Alice Hoffman (here at NPR.org) that reminded me of that greatness, and the greatness of this book in particular. I read it ages ago, but the story and the language and imagery stuck with me and likely you too, if you have read it. If you haven’t, I recommend you add it to your short list.

See Alice Hoffman’s article for her story and an exerpt from it.

A must read for Polaroid Photography Fans

If you crave Polaroid film stock, but thought it was impossible to get it anymore, than Urban Outfitters is the site you want to check out. Specifically, this section of their site: UrbanOutfitters.com > Apartment  What’s New > Impossible Project. If you want some, I can’t promise you it will be cheap and plentiful and easy, but it will be possible. But, as they used to say: supplies are limited so act now.
