October linkfest

Cleo Levin wrote for Slate about “ridiculously surreal” made-for-Amazon brand names: “Here were a series of names that were not only unknown to me, but also quite perplexing: Artfish, Wishpig, Sweatyrocks, Demonlick, and Pukemark.”  * Ben Zimmer wrote for Beyond Wordplay about Washington’s new Planet Word Museum, which opened via virtual ribbon-cutting—with President Obama as a surprise guest—on October 22. * Have you ever wished there was a word for “words that elicit amusement due t...

21 Savage Says He Does NOT Miss Amber Rose: I’m “Married” & “Happily in Love”

21 Savage says that he’s completely over his relationship with Amber Rose. In fact, he says that she’s the last thing on his mind because he’s “married” and “happily in love” with another woman. During a press run for his new project Savage Mode 2 earlier this month, the “Runnin” rapper was asked if he missed his ex-girlfriend and whether he’d made a song about her before. “Do I miss her? Hell nah,” he said in an interview with DJ Scream & Big Bank’s Big Facts podcast. “I ain’t made no songs abo...

#TrackoftheDay: “Ghost Train”

Pannonia Allstars Ska OrchestraHungary (2016) So apparently these guys are the one-stop shop for ska in Hungary. Not meaning they’re the only purveyors of the genre, but they do ska radio shows, have a booking agency to bring more ska to Hungary, and have a ska camp. A ska camp. That’s kinda fantastic. Read more about their exploits on their Wikipedia (which is always right) page.

The Mind on Furlough

I am still furloughed and still on the public dole. It has been just over six months, and if it goes on for only another six that will hit the under for most people's bets. I have been tremendously productive in ways which probably don't count for much. The first thing that happened was that my apartment got very clean; now it is extremely messy, even by my standards. I stopped practicing on July 1 and have not yet resumed. Instead, I have torn through books and records, scrabble word lists and ...

The Case Against Pierre Boulez

When conductors manage to continue performing into their eighties, their colleagues tend to soften their views, even of maestros who were once feared and despised. A shock of white hair and a newly tremulous tone of voice in rehearsals has helped many former tyrants come to be seen as benevolent fountains of wisdom. I can think of no other artist for whom this transformation was as complete, or improbable, as Pierre Boulez. When he was a young composer and polemicist in Paris in the 1940s and 1...

Stranded – “Post-Meridian”

Stranded is a mysterious/unnamed musician based in Atlanta who is, at least nominally, an electronic artist. The couple of EPs he's released so far bore tinges of house music, but he mixes those with a whole lot of other touchstones: He cites post-punk acts like Bauhaus and PiL alongside the classic '80s 4AD era. It's … More »
