I actually had a fantastic weekend, but seeing these pictures of Grimes’s set makes me sad that I didn’t get to go to Pitchfork Fest.

Parents’ music?

I would be shocked as hell if my parents even knew who Mina was. My ancestors left Sicily for the US a few decades before she became popular. They also took several steps to acculturate themselves to white culture. Even my own father didn’t want to give me an Italian first name because of negative stereotypes of Sicilians. Not that people didn’t figure out my ethnic background by my last name anyway. That being said, I can’t say I’ve ever felt like anyone hated me for being Sicilian though. Often “otherized,” but never hated.

The perks of having a region-free Blu-ray player: being able to buy superior British discs with extra special features the bare-bones US editions lack.

The hour-long ‘Making Of’ featurette on this edition is fantastic.

With all due respect to Paul Simon, I would prefer you didn’t call me Al.

Mina Mazzini - Mi sei scoppiato dentro al cuore

ok, let’s break out some Italian oldies and stuff yo.

it’s not quite “se telefonando” but it’s still really good.

I was really hoping I’d get to see these guys at Pitchfork Fest this year. Of course the tickets got sold out for the day I wanted to go as soon as I finally found someone interested in going.

R.I.P. Milky. You were such a brave little carton. May your soul rest in cardboard heaven.
