01. Pitchfork Festival to Be Webcast Live
“This year’s Pitchfork Music Festival is right around the corner! The big throwdown takes over Chicago’s Union Park July 16-18. Didn’t buy tickets yet? Well, you’re in luck. Tickets for Friday are going fast, though you can still get them here. As for Saturday and Sunday, we’ve made a limited number of tickets available, but they will only be procurable on-site on Thursday, July 15. The box office will open at 11 a.m. Show up early; they won’t last.” (p4k)
02. Harmony Korine’s Trash Humpers Soundtrack Is A Load Of Rubbish
“The official soundtrack to Harmony Korine’s new film, Trash Humpers, is being released in a similar ultra-limited edition run, although whether it will prove quite as attractive to collectors is rather less clear. If you don’t know Trash Humpers, it’s Korine’s fictional documentary about a subculture of lurking perverts in Nashville, Tennessee who get their kicks from, well, humping trash.” (guardian)
03. Hipster Priest: A Quietus Interview With Alan Moore (above)
“Alan Moore is holding court. He has a terrifying work ethic that belies the myth of laziness often lazily ascribed to his sub-cultural fringe of writers, anarchists, psycho-geographers, psychedelic bon vivants and occultists, and he doesn’t usually have much time for interviews. This said, he is extremely good company and you can tell he enjoys playing the expansive raconteur all the more because he gets little opportunity to indulge himself.” (thequietus)
04. Is A Career In Packaging Design Appealing To Id Grads?
“Like my college classmates, I studied industrial design with thoughts of going into furniture, electronic products or auto design, the sexier subdivisions of ID. Package design never occurred to any of us as an option until one of our number, a guy named Randy, got an internship doing package design. It paid roughly 50% more than any other ID internship at the time, and when he came back to the studio and told us what he was making we all dropped our glue guns.” (core77)
