GRITS AIN'T GROCERIES

I'm in week two of playing isolationist home library: trashterpieces, Jim Thompson novels and Katrina books almost exclusively. It's a hell of a hobby--You pretend like you don't have a shit-ton of laundry or money-jobbing to do and instead you read for eight to 10 hours a day and you stop cooking meal-meals and give in to making foods that you can eat with one hand without looking at them.

Meanwhile: The new DaCapo best of musical writing jawns book is coming out in a few weeks, and as someone with a Google has discovered, you can read most of it online. That said, you would be missing the best part (ok, second to Chris Ryan's piece, but, duh) --Christgau's foreword.
