Why write when you can link?

* Hipsters are indeed suckers for marketing. But we already knew this. writes an interesting analysis on "indie" music and movies.

* Bob Woodward's new book about the Bush Administration and the War in Iraq sounds like it's going to make me mad. I hope it's exaggerated and untrue, but I fear that it's not.

* Slate laments how numb and passive we've become to discussions about torture.

* The Village Voice features 2 great articles about the new documentary "American Hardcore: The History of American Punk Rock from 1980 to 1986." The first one is a review. The second is an analysis of the film's message. Both portray the classic VV cynicism we've come to know and love.
