Friday finds

Patti Smith’s new book, Just Kids, is a great read. I’ll talk about it at greater length in a few days, but what was described to me as a memoir of her relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe turns out to be a self-portrait of Smith training herself to become an artist. Fascinating stuff. And how cool is it that Smith will be headlining a benefit show for New Brunswick’s durable Court Tavern?

Maybe the eBook isn’t the wave of the future after all.

Rebranding the Taliban.

The Shire imposes Net censorship.
