It's Friday afternoon, and I'm still out here on Long Island, swatting mosquitoes, getting sunburned, chasing my kids and reading about murderous Mormons in John Krakauer's "Under the Banner of Heaven." I'll be back in the city next week (when I start work again), but until then I thought I'd highlight some items that caught my eye recently, notably...
My piece for The New York Nobody Sings on King Crimson's "Thela Hun Ginjeet."
Ben Wagner's preview of the guitarriffic "It Might Get Loud."
Jill sagely warns you to stay the hell off the Manhattan Bridge.
More great photographs courtesy of A Test of Will.
Goodbye,you bald bastard!
Ephemeral New York remembers the horrific Tompkins Square Butcher.
