  1. The Shrieking Violet: The Would Be’s - I’m Hardly Ever Wrong

    An interview with the Would Be’s from 2009. I had no idea they were so young when ‘I’m Hardly Ever Wrong’ came out. (Also, they have an album out in May!)

  2. From the generalized resource curse to communism | An und für sich

    I think the group I was in, in a class in Houston in 2000, proposed a guaranteed basic income like this for our imagined future society on Mars. (via @cshirky)

    I'd like to see a fun lifestyle column where a benefits claimant finds out if it's possible to spend all the money IDS earns in a week.
