Two things

Happy New Year.

Now that I've said that, two things:

My first Bookslut Indie Heartthrob Interview of 2008 just went up. And who gets to take the helm? Why, Ander Monson of course! He talks about editing for DIAGRAM and The New Michigan Press while unwittingly departing valuable information on starting a webzine to an interviewer with an ulterior motive.

Secondly, two songs everyone needs to listen to:

"When the Other Foot Drops, Uncle" - Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings (from 100 Days 100 Nights) [linked from Ear Farm]. I just about buckled when I heard this.

"Clowns" - Goldfrapp (from the forthcoming Seventh Tree. A wonderful, folky departure that retains Alisons angelic vocals from the previous electro albums.

And as always, john AT thimblezine DOT com for submissions, ideas, and encouraging/disparaging niceties.
