  • Jazz: The Music of Unemployment: Twitter killed the video star – christopher weingarten makes the point that crowd sourcing killed great music. because there is lots of “who” you should listen to, but not much “why” (via andrew durkin)
  • AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com -a good cure for the summertime blahs
  • Los Angeles Eat+Drink – Snook Attack: La Chente – johnathan gold again tempts me with his food porn. “Have you ever encountered pescado Zarandeado? Because it is as intimidating as an entrée can get, a vast, smoking creature split open at the backbone and flopped open into a sort of skeleton-punctuated mirror image of itself, wisps of steam rising around the onions and lemon slices with which it is strewn, served on the kind of plastic tray you may remember from your high school cafeteria, which is probably the only vessel broad enough to handle the fish. As served at Mariscos La Chente, a Westside restaurant specializing in the seafood dishes of Sinaloa and Nayarit, it is so menacing that you scarcely know whether to eat it or beat it to death with a stick.”
  • Industrial Jazz Group – ReverbNation -now that i’m on break i’m looking forward to listening to the IJG’s latest album LEEF. “Frustrated by the limitations of “Jazz, the Institution,” but equally resistant to the confines of modern pop, the Industrial Jazz Group has slowly pioneered a middle way. Its music is an idiosyncratic blend of rock, bebop, cartoon soundtracks, blues, funk, Balkan music, doo wop, and, well, a lot of other stuff. (In the end, it’s neither “industrial” nor “jazz,” so don’t let the name fool you.)”
