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?"

VI. Credits
Thank you to Team Dizzies members for the postings last week!

III. In 1995 I used to get letters from a kid from Boston who always spelled "friend" as "fren." (As in, "I am not sure I should be writing to you, because I have a girlfren.") It wasn't until I heard this song in 2002 that I realized he was just showing Fenway loyalty.

I. Did you read about this thing they're doing in Beijing? Personally I'm all for it - after all, we still have Google translate.

As they say: "Fren" takes the "id" out of "friend"!
