bragainwatch: McSweeney's 16

Although I haven't read it yet, some might be interested to know that Amazon is selling [$] issue 16 of McSweeney's Quarterly Concern (featuring a weird folding design, multiple booklets, a deck of giant story cards, and a plastic comb) for only $8. This is about 1/3 of the newsstand price and a good way to get another order into free shipping territory.

newport mystery solved!

the mystery of which artist's cover of "in the aeroplane over the sea" provided the exit music for last night's episode of the o.c. has been solved by the readers of You Ain't No Picasso. They say that the track is from Matt Pond, PA and provide links to other Neutral Milk Hotel covers [#].

sidenote of little relevance: At CMJ, the Matt Pond PA show was the only one where I was on the list. And yet, I didn't attend because it conflicted with a screening of Elizabethtown.
