Nico Muhly shudders. I think I had one of those Muhly shuddering incidents after finishing all 60 hours of Six Feet Under.
The Augusta Chronicle staff wrote a touching editorial about the death of David Reader, nicely outlining the importance of orchestras in smaller communities.

Big, hulking Josh Kosman loves him some Anthony Trollope.
Few things give me more joy than my tickets to see Eddie Izzard Saturday night. Expect a fan's review shortly thereafter. Here's Eddie talking about the importance of a career, and bees.
