A couple of things

I haven't had much to post about of recently, but today I've stumbled across a couple of things. Firstly Built to Spill, the seminal indie-rock group have a new record out and you can stream a video of "Goin" Against Your Mind" here in 56k .asx format, 128 .asx format and in .mov format.

Secondly, MSNBC has an interesting feature of God in comic books. It turns out that Peter Parker, aka Spiderman, is a believer, and most likely Protestant.

"Comic books from edgier alternative publishers and adult-oriented graphic novels have explored explicitly religious ideas for several decades, but what’s striking is how often such themes have been appearing lately in the most mainstream of publications. For a character you can’t even see, God does seem to pop up all over the place in the comic book universe." Read the rest of the article here.
