Whitey Don't Surf

Cogent additions to the Stephin Merritt/taste-and-whiteness debate from Simon, stressing the crucial role of masculinities in Merritt's thinking. No debate from me, just yes, yes, uh-huh, yes. Though Merritt's passive-aggressive persona (musically fertile, interpersonally difficult) is in its own way plenty macho.

Totally unrelated (except for the white!): The CBC is expanding its podcast frontier, which is a laudable development but still way stingy compared to U.S. National Public Radio's efforts in the same vein. The score is now CBC, 1; NPR, a bazillion.

Oops, yeah, you're right: CBC two!, NPR still a bazillion.
