skeetonmischa: P-Fork gives the new Diplo/Santogold mixtape an 8 on their grading scale and I kind of have to agree with them. Listening to it today, I enjoyed it, a lot.

LAist: 5.4 Earthquake Strikes Southern California* →
yumwatch: The comments for this post (which appeared on the site about four minutes after the actual quake, much faster than the LAT, which actually BROKE and was unloadable for about half an hour after the event) are funny, informative, and a great survey of the reactions of people across the Southland.

goldenfiddle: Now I am quietly waiting for the catastrophe of my personality to seem beautiful again, and interesting, and modern. The country is grey and brown and white in trees, snows and skies of laughter always diminishing, less funny not just darker, not just grey.

Naturally I read...
