The Believer smells weird.

I couldn't agree more with Nick Hornby yay, Greil Marcus boo. Hornby is sort of a breezier, less polymath (but who isn't) Clive James; Marcus is the sort of rock critic who makes me want to disagree even when he's (unusually) right.

I cut Jack Pendarvis a little slack; Roy Blount, Jr. is a tough act to follow. (Pendarvis replaced Blount as regular columnist in the Oxford American about a year ago.)

The publication date of the Oxford American's annual music issue should be a national holiday. Nine weeks to go!
