Yo, Simon Reynolds! He’s kinda got a point, eh?

“if you think the concept of hip is dead all it means is you’re not hip anymore,”

“if you think the concept of hip is dead all it means is you’re not hip anymore,” i was told today. and just now i came across “the kids are alright” from the washington post—almost out of the semi-lucrative, after all these years, 18-34 demographic, the author is, and the whole of the article is centered around this newer musical generation gap, thongs versus being hot for teacher, the sweetness of ‘nsync versus the foppishness of duran duran. “None of the music I like comes with Parental Advisory stickers and I guess this is my way of knowing I’ve died. I’m supposed to go quietly.” too true, too true.

“Jesus, it’s the inner sleeve of “Goo” all over again”: oh no, it’s just the collection of postcards from makeoutclub.com. POSSIBLE PRE-PUBLICATION CHECKLIST: obligatory references to pop culture from the 1970s (“fat albert,” “CHiPS”) and 1980s (atari), check!; shot of bad shoes, check!; mawkish almost-hallmarky cards that probably are just quotes from a promise ring song or something, check!; way played out ‘you suck’ quasi-ironic sentiments, check!; possibly unintended but still there bloodhound gang reference, check!

Crown of Trinkets

Crown of Trinkets — yes, you read that right. And it’s a blog, though it hasn’t linked to this one yet. I, however, as a member of the NYLPM team aggrandize myself by linking to it as it is the newly founded blog of my friend and former apartment/housemate Jake Anderson, who runs the small but unfeasibly grand Tape Mountain label and allegedly just might have something to do with the Raunchy Young Lepers. Do rest assured that his current musical work is of another caliber entirely, though. He actually doesn’t seem to have updated in about a week, but no matter, you will find it a place of goodness.
