Paste Update

 One of my current favorite sources to discover new music is Paste Magazine and the always stellar accompanying CD. The bad news has been that it only comes out once a quarter. The good news is they will go to a bi-monthly publishing schedule as of the Oct. 03 issue. Nice!

Optical dude

 Here's a couple of keen optical illusions for your enjoyment. (via Metafilter) Illusion 1 is trippy (No they're not moving!) , but #2 is truly unbelievable (found this awhile back at Jason's site)

Not quite, But close

 Radio Paradise is a relatively popular stream over at Shoutcast. And while not quite perfect (by my standards anyway -Less 70's, more Americana please!) they do a lot of things right. If more was right with the world every major metro area would have station like this. One that played deep cuts from the best artists of the last three decades and introduced new ones on a weekly basis!

just can't get enough

 I have failed to post this until past midway through the year....but for those who missed it. The mother of all music critic polls and a fun read...(skip the singles poll and go right for the albums...) Pazz and Jop.

Indie Madness

 Epitonic. Although this site leans way more toward indie rock than the Americana sound I prefer, it still seems very interesting in concept and execution. Worth exploring!
