1) I am completely obsessed with the band interpol and their angular, joy division-esque rock. I’ve been listening to Turn on the Bright Lights, their 2002 album. There’s a more recent one I’ve gotta pick up sometime soon.

2) the New York Magazine’s cover story Up with the Grups which is, to steal the mag’s slug for the story, “The Ascendant Breed of Grown-Ups Who Are Redefining Adulthood.”

Here’s an extract from the intro: “He owns eleven pairs of sneakers, hasnít worn anything but jeans in a year, and wonít shut up about the latest Death Cab for Cutie CD. But he is no kid. He is among the ascendant breed of grown-up who has redefined adulthood as we once knew it and killed off the generation gap.”
