Things Unrelated to Other Things 

Buy the new Sally Timms album and then see her at Maxwell's, if you're in town.

McSweeney's has a very accurate piece today On the Utility of Minneapolis-St. Paul as a Base of Operations for Various Well-Known Superheroes or Super Teams (a subject which I've actually considered many times while standing around downtown waiting for the goddamn bus).

Also, buy the new Jon Langford album, which, truth be told, I like a bit more. Then you can see his art, if you want.

And finally, for those of you feeling campaign withdrawl, the stuff I've just started reading (or re-reading) to feed my sick addiction.

The Selling of the President, Joe McGinniss
The Boys On the Bus, Timothy Crouse
Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72, Hunter S. Thompson
Not campaign-related, but required reading anyway, What's the Matter With Kansas?, Thomas Frank.

And a selection from Bush's co-hagiographer, to give us hope for an eventful second term.

This may be the year when we finally come face to face with ourselves; finally just lay back and say it -- that we are really just a nation of 220 million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns, and no qualms at all about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable.
-Hunter S. Thompson, via Billmon
