02. Best Kept Secrets

“There has been so much written about the death of Elizabeth Taylor over the past two days… and deservedly so… Still, another passing caught my eye on Thursday, as I skimmed the obituaries: Dorothy Young, who was the last living member of Harry Houdini’s stage show, died Sunday at a retirement home in Tinton Falls, N.J. She was 103 years old.” (nyt the 6th floor)

03. Coliseum /Superchunk Split 7″ for Record Store Day

“Coliseum are waving their (black) flag in support of Record Store Day, and will team up with Superchunk to release a split 7” of Misfits covers. Limited to 2000 copies in three colorways (yellow, magenta, black), Superchunk will take on “Horror Business” while Coliseum tears down “Bullet”. The 7″ is not the first time that Coliseum has paid tribute to Danzig, as Coliseum teamed up with Doomriders in 2005 to record the Not of This World split of Danzig covers for Level Plane.” (brooklynvegan)

“October, 1996. Having recently been interviewed for Rolling Stone, an angry Hunter S. Thompson writes a heated letter to his good friend and long-time collaborator, illustrator Ralph Steadman, and threatens to sever their relationship.
