(* = definites as far as I can tell, if you need a ride, etc.)

There must be a way to use this for non-political purposes. Dinner invites? Dance updates?

Believer Magazine is taking a break from their busy schedule of making liberal arts students/freelance artists feel really smart and important to gear up for their double music issue!! Promises so far: an interview with Karen O. by Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney, an article on the Danielson Famile, and interviews with Beck and (wait for it) Smooooooosh (yes yes). The accompanying CD will include 17 covers by Devendra Banhart, the Constantines, Spoon, the Mountain Goats, and the Decemberists, etc. etc. No wonder Rory Gilmore has a gigantic poster of Dave Eggers in her dorm room.

From field reporter Eliza Ford: Crying While Eating. God Bless America.

Finally, some stuff stolen from Adam and Max, who unlike Eliza will not be on campus tonight to eat Typhoon and cry for the death of a dance party era:

M.I.A. + Rapture = Jealous Bucky

Modern Love + We Will Rock You = Modern Rock

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants comes out tomorrow holy shit,

Dude, MIA for free in Central Park? In what way is that not a definite? I'm about to pee myself over that one.
