Arya may be in India for a month, but he still wanted to weigh in on each of our topics, and let us know what he’s been up to. Here’s his notes for Episode 19: Demonizing the Unfamiliar. Enjoy.
What have I been up to this week?
Still in India.
Finished Just Kids by Patti Smith. Required reading!! Reading Steve Martin’s (yes, that Steve Martin) An Object of Beauty now and it’s good too. Also reading the 33 1/3 on The Kinks’ We Are the Village Green Preservation Society.
Really love the new Phoenix single, and the new Strokes song is pretty good too. also this rooftop runners video is great, and this Cass McCombs song is great.
Also, I have been listening to some Red House Painters tracks on YouTube today, Saturday February 23. it’s my first real time listening to them and it’s really effing good.
