Hey Self

Amanda Palmer is making (has made?) new cds – “Know, Virginia”, “Elephant, Elephant”, “Who Killed Amanda Palmer?”Ok, self. Try not to forget. Especially when you find yourself at the music store. (Also, she has a myspace page that you like – http://www.myspace.com/whokilledamandapalmer)

Rome Antics

David Macaulay talks about the origins of one of the dearest picture books ever thought up. The talk is a testament to tenacity, frustration, artistry, imagination and love. The resulting book, Rome Antics, is one of my favorites. (An excellent Valentine’s Day gift if anyone out there is still trying to think of one…)
