The Grey Album is less great in retrospect

is there a god?

 So fucking good. The Onion asks a bunch of people Is There A God? Includes answers from Conan, Bill Mahar, Michael Moore, Laurie Anderson, David Byrne, Chuck Palahniuk, and many more.

 Fugazi gives the first mainstream press interview I've ever seen. Choosing the Washington Post to allow this to happen is interesting. Ian MacKaye even provides a list of his Top 10 Songs Of All Time, which is completely odd:

  • Nina Simone, "Compensation"
  • Floyd Cramer, "Last Date"
  • Janis Joplin, "Ball and Chain"
  • Jimi Hendrix, "Villanova Junction"
  • Bad Brains, "The Blackdots"
  • Black Flag, "I've Had It"
  • One Way Streets, "We All Love Peanut Butter"
  • Trouble Funk, "Pump Me Up"
  • Rites of Spring, "Drink Deep"

 I went to high school outside Bismark, ND, and I can tell you no one ever played "Slip". Maybe if more parents used Pomals this wouldn't happen.

 Stephen Ambrose has died.

 Nerve has an interview with Irvine Welsh about his new book, Porno.

 There have been some rumors that Apple will be releasing its own phone-pda soon. Not that this substantiates those rumors but at this moment, if you got to iphone.org, you'll see apple.com.

 A.S. Byatt asks what constitutes a European identity? in The Times.

 Ron Rosenbaum flees a peace demonstration in Central Park.

 Just one more Times link: a profile of the Slashdot gang. You might expect to get one of those cool inside looks at the making of medium (there are a quite a few Onion articles like that), but you'll find this one sadly gives little inside insight.
