The Seer's Tower

Gapers Block talks to Sufjan Stevens about the making of Illinois. Nothing about his Superman complex, though. Via Largehearted Boy.

Billboard has the offical straight goods on that episode, though, including the fact that DC never actually issued a cease-and-desist – Asthmatic Kitty issued the recall themselves when they realized that they in fact did not own the rights to Superman and that there could potentially be an issue.

You may also note that Illinois is rocking the Metacritic scores. And if you missed it, though everyone everywhere has already blogged it, here’s a new song Sufjan performed on NPR last week:

MP3: Sufjan Stevens – “The Great God-Bird”

Two Sufjan posts in less than a week? Yeah, it’ll happen sometimes. MP3 of the week, too!

The Decemberists’ Jenny Conlee apparently takes a plus Chewbacca with her on every tour. Okay, then.

Arcade Fire side-project The Bell Orchestre will be at the El Mocambo on August 5 with The Wooden Stars. Admission $8 at the door.

Bookslut gives indie comic publisher Oni Press some love. I’ve only read a couple titles from Oni – Scott Lee O’Malley’s romance-action-comedy Scott Pilgrim and Greg Rucka’s espionage thriller Queen & Country, but have been assured as to the general excellence of everything that they put out.

Frank Miller – the man who pretty much defined the grim and gritty Batman – tells Newsarama how excited he is to be writing a 12-year old Dick Grayson in All-Star Batman & Robin, The Boy Wonder, which comes out next week.

Short post today, but yesterday’s was long so that balances out.

    I did not. I ended up going record shopping instead.

    Thanks for always updating on weekends! Do you know of any other music-related blogs that also update on the weekends? Besides LHB, that is. Thanks!

    Coolfer occasionally updates on weekends, as does For The Records. Donewaiting? I dunno, it can be tough sometimes. I’m surprised I’ve been able to do it for so long but make no guarantees to the future.

    Have you been reading Bookslut for long? My wife has been writing their Comicbookslut column for ages. Small world.
