Stephin Merritt stars in a video game

Odd a sentence though it may seem to type, Stephin Merritt will be starring in a video game.  The American Museum of Natural History will be hosting a live, in-person video game entitled "Space Cruiser." From what I can gather, the game will center around a spaceship controlled by up to 200 people with narration provided by Mr. Merritt.  Music for the event will be provided by One Ring Zero.  The event will take place on January 26.  Tickets are $75 and can be purchased here.  I would love to hear about it if any of you lovely readers do attend the event.

Daniel Handler continues to torture us with the ever elusive Song From Venus in this interview, comparing it to Chinese Democracy.  In more exciting news, however, he says the he and Mr. Merritt have been commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company to write another musical, which is already in workshop stages.  I hope this one's future is more prosperous than its seemingly ill-fated predecessor.
