See these glorious little things? These are samples from the Isle Of Jura’s Boutique Barrels whisky collection, sent on to me by kind souls at Whyte & MacKay. If you’re reading, Craig and Jill, thank you so much. They are so beautiful I want to cry and treasure them. But instead I will pour them down my neck like the monster I truly am.

I write about things I like, here, in the hopes that you like them too and that they become more widely known. It’s about the attention economy and doing what’s right, rather than getting hold of boxes of swag.
I’ve written here before about the wonderful group Natural Snow Buildings. I believe I also mentioned how pissed off I was that time conspired against me and I didn’t get to see them (on the same bill as Grouper and Fennesz) recently. I don’t know them or anything. I most recently linked to their free-download album THE CENTAURI AGENT.
A box just arrived via FedEx from my book agent. It is filled with records, tapes and CDs. And on top was this note:
My day is officially made. Mehdi and Solange, thank you. That was incredibly kind.
(also, I think I just received the soundtrack for the graphic novel I’m currently writing.)

The attractive young people of No Pain In Pop have sent me along a sample of their goods. And, in fact, if you bop along to their website right now, they have a very interesting piece of noise by Future Shuttle for you to listen to.
