Taipei personality—Toni, Toni, Toni—Download now—While I was out
I. Chinese Whispers
I'm back! Here is the first of an interminable number of photos from Taiwan...let's call this featurette "Taiwan A to Z"—and hope I have enough photos to match with all the letters!
A is for..."Amiable Stylish Outlook":
II. Surreal Estate
Shelter-heads, rejoice! Toni Schlesinger has a new column in the New York Observer—great title (Interiors), and great quote: “My friend woke up one morning at the bottom with a ukulele and a sandwich on her head."
III. Musical Interlude
Song for JetBlue?: Psychic Envelopes, "Winter Losses."
Random great Modern Lovers song (via Moistworks)—and best "spelling" song ever?: "Girlfriend."
IV. Tipper Score
The new New-York Ghost is out!
V. I Come From Chino/So all your threats are empty
Dizzyhead Martin has a wonderful (and frighteningly encyclopedic) look back at the meta aspects of The O.C. (R.I.P.). Philosophical lede: "What makes us who we are?"
Thank you to Team Dizzies members for the postings last week!
