Media Announcements: I am in such a tizzy over Ozzy that I failed to mention my profile of Joanna Newsom (she plays Tipitina's in New Orleans, LA, USA Nov. 13; Dear band I recently interviewed elsewhere that expressed interest in being her opening act: I tried.) in that same issue of OffBeat.

Luc Sante, Low Life: Lures and Snares of Old New York
It is a city and it is also a creature,a mentality, a disease, a threat, an electromagnet, a cheap stage set, an accident corridor. It is an implausible character, a monstrous vortex of contradictions, an attraction-repulsion mechanism so extreme no one could have made it up.

Faith unto death or a knife in your eye
- Motörhead, "Love Me Forever"
