Passive-Aggressive Notes. I've left a few of these on the windows of poorly parked cars.

New Paul McCartney video

and the song's actually kind of good, and the video is weird and funny and has Natalie Portman in it (and that guy from the British office):

How Reid Got to Be That Way

Fanta Screws with your mitochondria? (via BoingBoing):

[An] expert in ageing at Sheffield University, who has been working on sodium benzoate since publishing a research paper in 1999, has decided to speak out about another danger. Professor Peter Piper, a professor of molecular biology and biotechnology, tested the impact of sodium benzoate on living yeast cells in his laboratory. What he found alarmed him: the benzoate was damaging an important area of DNA in the "power station" of cells known as the mitochondria.

Golden Compass Trailer

For the Pullman fans in the ehouse, a trailer.

Switching gears, what's everyone up to this summer? Who will be in LA? Any Portland visits on the horizon? I'll be making a trip out to the East Coast for a week in mid-late June, and then will come down for a week in LA to coincide with Sonic Youth playing Daydream Nation at the Greek, and Harry Potter graduating.

Other than that, recording an album, putting on a festival, writing a column, maybe doing some hypothetical grad school research etc.

Anyone read Yiddish Policemen's Union yet? I'm curious. Listening to Lethem's You Don't Love Me Yet at the gym these days.

Hope you're all well.

New Greenaway Film

About Rembrandt, starring Martin Freeman. As with most Greenaway stuff, my reaction is both Awesome and Huh.
