24 commentary for this week – I actually didn’t have anything to say about this week’s episode, besides the usual (Kim needs to die, etc). I thought it was pretty solid. But those last few seconds… He shot him in the ear? Who shoots someone in the ear? I mean, really. He was probably aiming for the soul patch.
Vice has a typically snotty article about bands screwing indie labels, but the bit about Teenage Fanclub versus Matador Records is particularly interesting. The Fannies seem like such nice boys, the idea of Matador’s Gerard Cosloy hating them with a fire that rivals the very pits of hell is an odd one. Link from Ypersound.com.
More Matador-related horror stories here: a slew of bands are asked, “What was your worst memory of touring with Yo La Tengo?” Hilarious anecdotes ensue. From Largehearted Boy.
Congratulations to Doc Halladay on winning his first Cy Young award by a landslide. That’s four Cy Youngs for Blue Jays pitchers in eight years – pretty damned impressive, and also ironic. We somehow manage to have both the best pitching in the league and no pitching at all.
