OutKast, “Hey Ya!” off Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (2003)

This song is 10 years old. That’s right: it came out September 9, 2003. I know this because a few days later we were all in my dorm room dancing to it when I asked my (future) wife, “Hey, you want to get out of here?” (Which means we’ve been together ten years. Damn!) Playing it for my son: “You might not exist if not for this song…”

[N.B.: map drawn by an editor at W.W. Norton for a pub crawl for new sales representatives and it was too good not to share. The White Horse Tavern was a favorite of Dylan Thomas, Kettle of Fish a home away from home to many Beat poets.]

When do *we* get to go, Norton?!?

Spooky book trailer…

'BAIT' by J. Kent Messum - Official Book Trailer


"Six strangers wake up on a remote island in the Florida Keys with no memory of their arrival. They soon discover their common bond: all of them are heroin addicts from the slums of Miami. As the first excruciating pangs of withdrawal make themselves felt, the six notice a yacht anchored across open water. On it lurk four shadowy figures, protected by the hungry sharks that patrol the waves. So begins a dangerous game. The six must undertake the impossible—swim to the next island where a cache of heroin awaits, or die trying. When alliances form, betrayal is inevitable. As the fight to survive intensifies, the stakes reach terrifying heights—and their captors’ motives finally begin to emerge."
