There’s a profile of Iggy Pop in the new issue. Filled with trepidation. Me, not the article.

I agree. It wasn't bad. She interviewed the right people. But didn't you feel that this was someone who hadn't spent a lot of time listening to the music?
She's talking about his new album, which has some inappropriate lyrics, and she says - hey, don't be surprised, and starts telling the old stories about his stage show. I think anyone immersed in the music would have said, hey don't be surprised, look at "I Wanna Be Your Dog"

I used to be young enough to wear this shirt. Looking forward to being old enough to wear it again.

i had dinner with schjeldahl and his wife (and a couple of colleagues) a few years ago when he visited to give the commencement address at my college. i set up a dinner at piccolo, which they loved. his commencement address was short, unsentimental and completely moving. one of the best i've heard.
my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary
current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)
current whisky review: glen ord 28
current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers
facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!

I thought I used to like Helen Rosner's writing, but this piece about the best things she's eaten this (past) decade annoys me with its prose. Sounds like a romance novel or something.
