Rojak is a (typically) weekly collection of assorted links as well as a bulletin summarising the week on this blog.
Yes, I know, I’m supposed to do this every week, but we had something of a big feature last weekend, so forgive me.
Probably the only thing I share with the likes of Cortázar, Borges, Camus, Sartre, Raymond Chandler, and Grant Morrison (sadly enough) is that we are cat people. [via Writers and Kitties] (Special guest appearance by Sam Beckett.)
While we’re on the subject of writers and cats… [via The Book Bench]
Morrissey’s autobiography is getting published. [via The Guardian]
A review of the upcoming new Fleet Foxes album, Helplessness Blues. [via Obscure Sound]
On Lee Friedlander’s The Little Screens. [via we make money not art]
And finally, let’s have some Sonny Boy Williamson. [via YouTube]
The main feature here this fortnight:
- Goodbye, Elisabeth Sladen
- Janelle Monáe
- Werner Herzog
- Herzog, with bonus Cormac McCarthy (and physicist Lawrence Krauss!)
- On Kate Bush and the estate of James Joyce
- James Salter
- Fro Design Co
- IMPAC shortlist
- Robbie Robertson on Scorsese and… Dylan
- You guessed it: more Dylan
- And the Pulitzer goes to…
Don’t think I missed anything out!
