o A solid guide to Sun Ra. Szwed highlights two of my fave Arkestral excursions (1978′s Lanquidity and 1967′s Strange Strings). Looking forward to checking out his other recommendations.
o A gallery of Al Jaffee’s Mad fold-ins. Lovely interface.
o Generic names for soft drinks by county: a map.
o Jim O’Rourke: old-time ballplayer. (Thx, Artis.)
o The Beeb reports that “nearly 500,000 people in developing nations earn a wage making virtual goods in online games.”
o Akron/Family’s Daytrotter session, taped during South by Southwest in March. I’m one of the auxilary chanters/finger-snappers/pot-bangers. Great sound quality.

    You’ve got to pickup, download, burn, Sleeping Beauty made after Lanqudity which has the same laid back vibe – as laid back as the Ra can be. Essential listening.
