Do you want to live in Stephin Merritt's house?

So, apparently, Stephin Merritt is selling his house.  I'm not quite sure how I feel about sharing this info, as it seems rather innocuous and personal, but news has been slow around here lately.  I do hope that this doesn't mean the end of Mr. Merritt's tenure in LA, I'll say that much, I guess.  Anyhow, go buy Stephin Merritt's house!

New Stephin Merritt song

Above is a video advertising "Together," a series of films about queer culture by director Jeff Feurzig, sponsored by Pride Toronto.  The music for this video in particular features music by Mr. Stephin Merritt and Kenny Mellman, he of Kiki & Herb fame.  Check it out.

A write-up of the Philip Glass "Music With Friends" event can be found here.  An all-new interview with Mr. Merritt focusing largely on his time in the great city of Chicago can be found here.
