The Essence of Style argues that Louis XIV's reign engaged in a policy to connect France with high fashion as a mercantilist tool. Sounds like an interesting read. if I ever had the time.

Here is a long, very interesting, if slightly overtechy interview with Wil Shipley, co-creator of superultrapretty and useful mac-friendly program delicious library, which allows users to manage their personal music, dvd, and book libraries, with stunning visuals and general user-friendly qualities. The interview also mentions the departure of co-creator Mike Matas, who has gone to work for Apple, as mentioned on his blog, which has many a scenic photo.

Interesting McSweeneys dispatch about the life of an adjunct professor. I also recommend the ongoing dispatches from a public librarian.

The latest New Yorker (July 11, 2005) has a very long and interesting article about Roald Dahl and his ongoing popularity with children (and the dislike of his books by some adults) which makes for a very good read. Well-timed what with the latest incarnation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory coming out shortly.

It seems that there is a documentary coming out about the old 9:30 club, which was at 930 F Street NW. Which I remember fondly, back in the days when the area around Gallery Place was shady and disreputable, and the sidewalks covered with litter. The club itself was tiny, smoky, and the view always obstructed by a column or tall person, although you were always close to the stage.
