The Library of Congress has posted Bound for Glory: America in Color, an online exhibition of color images taken by the Farm Security Administration from 1935–1944. Amazing stuff.

It's not that I'm suffering from writer's block or anything queer like that, it's just that there's a lot going on in the office and in life. The difficult thing for me, when it comes to writing, is making sense of all these little red and white ideas hanging down from the ceiling like origami birdies. I'd prefer to spend my entire day writing.

I do not listen to Christmas records. I just don't—a legacy of working in record stores over waaay too many holiday seasons. So, when I tell you that I can't stop listening to Dana Cunningham's Silent Night, you just have to believe that it's pretty special. It's quiet, ruminative, and deep—good sound, too.
