Anyone else notice how Sunday news still has a gaping hole in it? One year ago tomorrow Tim Dawg died doing what he loved, and what we loved watching. Fucking shame still and bums me out till this day.
Peep Media Bistro who asked Brokaw, Ifill, Schieffer etc thoughts on Timmy after a year.
Found on Gawker

I need to dig into this more but check out this prodigy.
It's not your average science fair when the 16-year-old winner manages to solve a global waste crisis. But such was the case at last month's Canadian Science Fair in Waterloo, Ontario, where Daniel Burd, a high school student at Waterloo Collegiate Institute, presented his research on microorganisms that can rapidly biodegrade plastic.

Tonite starts what could end up being my favorite week of the Summer. Art Brut, and their new awesomely titled album Art Brut vs Satan, begin their 5 night sold out run at Mercury Lounge (hat tip tip to Jay).
BTWs - Did you know Bowery has a blog? They do, it's called House List. They are getting it off the ground but are doing cool shit like ticket give-a-ways.

Hey head over to Jay Reatard and download the new single "It Ain't Gonna Save Me".
Album drops in August.
Also your July 4th weekend can start off with a BOOM if you get your tickets now to his performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Yes it's true folks, I broke this before Brooklyn Vegan did. Unannounced secret gigs by the bandanna mustachioed Yaps. If you can, try like hell to catch one of his Bowery Presents performances running through the weekend. He'll be at Ballroom, Lounge and Hall.
Guess what Good Ole Tom did with the $2,500?
