Endnotes (1/25/2010)


I don't know why it took me so long to start paying attention regularly to NPR's music site, but I've been enjoying exploring it over the past week or so. Here's another song I really like: "Broken Things" by The Reigning Sound.

10 'Will They/Won't They' Couples: Considering that this is my favorite TV plot ever, basically, I'm surprised I only watch three of these shows (although I'm planning on starting to watch House and Chuck). And what about Jane and Lisbon from The Mentalist? They totally belong on there.

Omnivoracious, the Amazon book blog, has a roundup of eight influential authors of the YA Decade.

Before we get ahead of ourselves with excitement about the American version of Torchwood, Allie Townsend reminds us about Fox's history of cancelling sci-fi shows.

Um, really? Wisconsin thinks D&D encourages prison gangs?

Do we still need Lilith Fair? Carrie Brownstein considers.

Pete Souza reflects on the President's first year with a gallery of photos and commentary. There are some interesting process notes. For example, on photo ten: "The President meets with the Democratic Blue Dog coalition in the State Dining Room. I had noticed the glasses of cranberry and orange juice sitting on a table in the doorway of the Red Room, so I backtracked to compose this picture from inside the Red Room."

Slate's Farhad Manjoo wants the new Apple tablet to be more like a toaster.

I somewhat disagree with that Lillith Fair article. While, yes, there are a lot more female -musicians- out there, which is awesome, I still think the -image- of women in music remains homogenous and male-determined. So, while women musicians may not need the support, I think we do need a bunch of women getting together to shout, "This is REALLY what women in music look like!"
