Arrivals, departures.

Wanted to note, with sadness, the passing of Ellen Willis, cultural critic par excellence. Her VU essay in the Greil Marcus-edited Stranded --- amid celebrations of Desperado and Linda Rondstadt, and well in advance of the '80s reissues that made it a whole lot easier to get with this band --- is a wonderful thing to behold. SFJ also reports on his brief interactions with Willis.

Also, while we're cranking up the Victrola, we can also recommend an extraordinarily rich Sun Ra post over at Durutti, in which we learned that the incoming governor of Massachusetts is none other than Pat Patrick's son. Holy cow, we are behind in our reading....
