If anybody knows of a particular local charity that could really use a whole lot of graphic novels and comics TPBs--some kid-friendly, some adults-only--could you please let me know? I'm realizing I've got a whole lot of stuff, some of it very good, that I just don't need. I mean, there's always Housing Works, but I sort of want to give them to a place where there are people who will read them.
Otherwise: The Voice just ran two more pieces I wrote this week, on the music industry's financial situation and Melt-Banana. New mix CD, premiered at Jess Bruder's annual palatial pool party the other night, goes Bunker Hill/Melt-Banana/Pandi/The Juan Maclean/Rob Crow/Elvis Costello & the Attractions/Don Covay/Oedipus/News for Lulu/Letta/Angel Racing Food/Joseph Spence/Hans Appelqvist/the Aislers Set/the Beach Boys/Matmos/Peaches/Radiohead/Grinnell Giggers/postal workers/the Spinanes; it seems to have gone over well.
Today is mostly dedicated to extreme dullness.
