What I’m drinking tonight: a Bitter Mai Tai. And it’s every bit as delicious as it looks…maybe more.

Andy Baio recounts his legal trouble (and defends himself in the court of public opinion) over the cover art for Kind of Bloop (an excellent chiptune interpretation of the jazz classic, for those who don’t know). It’s an interesting, unfortunate story and a sad reminder that just because something likely falls under “fair use” (however poorly defined that term is) doesn’t mean you can afford to defend yourself.

While the album is still available for sale, it’s now without the (original, perfect) cover art. If you buy the album and want the proper cover art, please send me an email. Whatever “non-infringing” cover art Andy chooses, it won’t be as good as the original.

I can honestly say that this ad never gets old.

Bon Iver - “Michicant”

Spoiler Alert: the new album is phenomenal.

I don’t make a habit of sharing my desktops (because let’s be honest, who cares what I’m looking at), but this one makes me particularly happy.
