From The Active Listener Sampler 41: Frankie and the Witch Fingers, Diamond Incarnation, The Creatures of the Golden Dawn, Psychic Lemon
Well, it's another month (it always is . . . eventually) and therefore another top-notch compilation from the top-notch blog/daily fix known as The Active Listener. Spotlighted below are our four favorites, but within each widget is each of the seventeen mindblowers in this 41st sampler. ( When we saw that number, we felt a flicker of farback flummox. For some reason, in one phase of our wasted youth, we and our fellow dingbats always used to smirk nastily at the number 41. Like if your P.E. shorts were number "41," everyone else would smirk while you (we) blushed. Never actually figured out why, but we smirked (and blushed) with the best (or worst) of 'em. When we moved to a bigger city we never encountered this particular numerical taboo again (although "maturity" put us in touch with other, rather pleasurable, ones.))
