Hello, pumpkins! It has been far, far too long. You may have noticed that Pinna Storm went on a bit of a sebatical. So uh, October happened! There was baseball and Kim & Thurston breaking up and candy and costumes and something about Google Reader that’s broken the spirits of half of my Twitter feed and about 37 new Beyonce videos. So, here we are now in November! And here are your afternoon links.
- Shawn Stockman from Boyz II Men: Dismemberment Plan fan!
- In terrible but not terribly surprising news, Odd Future goes from being theoretically violent and terrible to being actually violent and terrible by physically assaulting a group of photographers and one woman in particular. This will probably be the last time anybody in that group gets mentioned on this blog.
- Amanda Palmer, Stephin Merritt, Neil Gaiman, Moby and Rocky Horror. Oh yes.
- This handy new tumblr, SpotiFYI, points out what’s new and cool on Spotify.
- New videos! From tabi Bonney and The Kills. And a lovely new song from Cloud Nothings.
- So have you heard the Lykke Li cover of “Unchained Melody” yet? Cause you should.
