The new issue of Paste (Issue #23) is out. Thom Yorke of Radiohead is on the cover, and there are feature articles on Yorke, The Long Winters, Snow Patrol, Paul Simon, and filmmaker Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). I have four album reviews, my backpage column (this time on Celtic punks The Pogues), and an article on poetry slams, featuring (for you Columbus folks) a flattering photo of the big, bald head of Dan Thress. Plus a 21-song CD and a 4+ hour DVD with short films and music videos from Al Green, Patty Griffin, Iron and Wine, The Shins, The Raconteurs, and many more.
Paste is going monthly, which means that I now have twice as much work to do. But that’s a good thing, and I’m thankful.
