China: one nation or nine?

Very interesting: The Atlantic has an interactive map showing the The Nine Nations of China. While it’s debatable to call them the nine nations or the nine regions of China,  it is without a doubt a great look at how China differs in as you go from one part to another.

Saturday Night Music: Knotty Pine, Dirty Projectors & David Byrne

The Dirty Projectors were in town this weekend. In case you haven’t heard them before, here there are doing Knotty Pine with David Bryne. As a big fan of Byrne, I can see the affinity he has with this band. (Although one of the You Tube comments was: “This song would be better if it was just the chick singing. The guys’ voices who sing the second half totally pale in comparison to the awesome voice of chicky.” Kids today. :)) Not everyone cup of tea, but old fans of David Byrne should check this out. (And young fans of Dirty Projectors should check out David Byrne!)
