1. This profile and interview with Fernando Llanos
This week, “We Make Money Not Art” has a profile of and interview with Fernando Llanos. I didn’t really know anything about him before reading this, and I’ve never seen his installations, but it was both fascinating and inspiring to hear about him.

2. Newsweek Interview with Maurice Sendak, Spike Jonze, and Dave Eggers.
Great interview. I’d never actually read any interviews with Sendak before, so this was a treat. Good stuff.

3. ‘Suicide’ live on WFMU
Apparently, earlier in 2009, legendary NYC electro duo, Suicide, got back together. I hope it wasn’t just a one-time thing. Either way, now it’s on the internet for everyone to hear. They’ve actually only put up two songs…but still it’s very rad.

OK, that’s it for now. There will be more of these posts soon. I promise.
