I asked him for his photo. He stared at me for a few seconds, then felt my forehead with the back of his hand, then stared at me for a few more seconds, then said: “What the fuck is wrong with you?”

Email has evolved into a weird medium of communication where the best thing you can do is destroy it quickly, as if every email were a rabid bat attacking your face.

Sultans of Swing by a busker in São Paulo

One of the all-time great guitar tunes absolutely nailed by a busker in São Paulo. Wow!

By making things, breaking things and taking real risks, by becoming citizens in our ad hoc community, we used the fallow days of summer to put our Catholic-school education, and our parents’ parenting, to the test. Trial and error often proved that they were right.

Interpol - All The Rage Back Home

The NYC stalwarts have returned with a new video, which opens like a hydrangea, slow and melancholic, before blooming into a thing of energetic beauty, with riffing guitar at its back and Paul Banks’ singular croon at its core. It’s driven, with rises and falls, with bouts of wistfulness, with a subdued sense that it’s all barely being kept under control.

In short, it’s Interpol — and it’s a great lead-in for El Pintor, their fifth album, due September 8th.

you gain perspective by having incredibly shitty things happen to you and the people you love. Nature has made it so that perspective is only delivered in bulk quantities. A railcar of perspective arrives and dumps itself on your lawn when all you needed was a microgram.
