Murakami, Upset, Electro, Lit

January 9, 2008

Clinton upsets in NH.

Finished The Wind Up Bird Chronicle, and am reminded of what a friend said about Murakami: he writes about unremarkable characters who find themselves in remarkable circumstances. Looking for a recommendation as to what of his to read next. Picked up a copy of The Evolution of Useful Things, and still have The Society of the Spectacle and Michel Houellebecq’s Platform to finish.

Listening to the slap-bass happy Buddy Akai, particularly liking Problems, The Fine Line and Cut Me Up. They allow downloads—a particularly nice touch. They are playing at SXSW!
