Getting Random

Catching up on blogging is always tough when you’ve got one foot here and another out the door. So here’s a couple of weeks of stuff.

• Flash is still cool. Congrats on him and the Five making it into the R+R Hall of Fame. Next up: Public Enemy?
Newark Star-Ledger

• Davey D features “Confessions of a BET Producer”, in four parts.

Jonathan Lim on Arcade Fire.

Dave Zirin on Bowie Kuhn and the unsung Black hero of free agency, Curt Flood.

The Good The Bad and The Queen live.

• Bye Coach K!

    Hello. Sometime reader, first-time poster. I enjoyed the article

    You may have already taken a look at Jody Rosen’s review on Slate. It makes some similar points, though his comparisons w/ hip hop producers and Springsteen bears questioning. Liu makes a better case.

    (Also: A whole article on the appropriation of history in alt and/or indie rock and not a single mention of Sufjan Stevens? WTF?)
