by Josh Kimball
*The New Yorker attends the opening of Adam Yauch’s documentary “Gunnin’ for that #1 Spot.” This magazine story contains a lot of descriptions of text messaging.
*Local: LAist interviews former Trip Shakespeare and Semisonic singer-songwriter Dan Wilson, talking about his solo album, Free Life: “I think I’ve always aspired to write radically simple songs, using the minimum words, things normal people would say, and the fewest, simplest chords to support the music. It hasn’t always worked out that way but it’s always been in my mind to do that.” [largehearted boy]
*MTV would consider giving Britney a second chance at this year’s VMAs? Gimme?
*This will be my last Converse post. Nice viral, though. Vomit.
*Off topic: There is an article in the New York Times Sunday Styles section about “dropped crotch” trousers that I am unable to find online. Suffice it to say that I like the idea of “dropped crotch” trousers.
