John Roderick & Friends: "Like Sammy, Frank, and Dean at the Sands in '63, Except With More Classy Dames, Hotter Tunes, and Better Suits"

If you ever wanted to know if your favorite tweeters are as witty, funny, and self-deprecating in person as they are inside 140 characters, October 29 is your night to find out. SW columnist John Roderick has corralled some of his music- and comedy-inclined friends--industry-slaying songwriter Jonathan Coulton, Comedy Central contributor John Hodgman, plus Merlin Mann and Scott Simpson--for a night of cultural debauchery. "It's going to be like Sammy, Frank, and Dean at the Sands in '63," Roderick says, "except with more classy dames, more roulette, more Lincoln Continentals, hotter tunes, funnier jokes, and better suits." If you can't make the show, follow @johnroderick, sure to include myriad updates.  » read more

Groupies maken bij The Long Winters geen schijn van kans

John Roderick interviewen heeft wel wat weg van college lopen. De frontman van de Americana rockband The Long Winters uit Seattle heeft veel weg van een professor door zijn originele en gedetailleerde antwoorden. Het liefst stopt hij er nog een stukje hedendaagse geschiedenis in - naast muziek zijn andere grote passie.

Deze kleurrijke muzikant presteerde het bijvoorbeeld in 1999 om helemaal van Amsterdam naar Istanbul te lopen. Het waarom van de bijna een half jaar durende voettocht is hem zelf nog steeds niet duidelijk, al is hij wel een heel eind opgeschoten met een boek over zijn reis. Het fascinerende is volgens hem dat je al lopende de geschiedenis van Europa aan je voorbij ziet trekken: "Je ziet het grote verhaal van Europa in honderdduizend stappen."  » read more
