Re: “On Leaving Brooklyn, Writing a Solo Album, and Feeling Old: An Interview With Kevin Morby

Good call. A portion of it ran in print this spring, but we waited until the album was announced before putting the full interview online...

Re: “The Best Summer Songs by Brooklyn Bands

Hey Anon and Johnny,

Weekend have since moved to Brooklyn (…) and Real Estate's official website states, "Real Estate the band is based in New Jersey and Brooklyn, New York." (A few if not all the members now live here.) I did indeed check.

Re: “The Barclays Center Is Making More Money in Concert Tickets Than Nearly Any Other Arena in the World

Ah, you're right, Sumo. Didn't think of that. Good point!

Re: “The Strangest Moments of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Ah, yes. The one and only time I attended the parade -- I think maybe 2004 or 2005? -- the M&M balloon toppled a street light and hit some bystanders. Oops.

Re: “Who Is Doing a Better Job at Pissing People Off: Billie Joe Armstrong vs. Jack White

Hey Jesso, I totally agree with you. I like to think that messing with scalpers was White's intent, only because I think the guy has been responsible for some pretty perfect rock songs and that explanation at least helps rationalize his behavior in my mind. But in reality, of course he's also punishing the actual fans who bought tickets, which I assume was the majority of the audience. And that sucks. If I had paid anywhere near $60-$90 for a ticket, I would be pretty bummed about the show, too. Hopefully, you'll have better luck next time!

Re: “For Make-Believe: Noel's Internal Dialogue While Watching Liam Play ‘Wonderwall’ During Last Night’s Olympics Closing Ceremonies

@Gaby: Oh, no! Noel didn't really say that (see "for make believe" in the headline). I was just having fun, though I can't imagine he was a happy camper. By all means, please continue idolizing him.
