It's not a love song

1. New Honeypump board is up, but not yet attached: go here. Tia on a week without b.hp: "Wow, I really actually did have a normal life of reading and socializing for an entire week."

2. Design freaks take note (scroll dow, fifth item), the new Boston-based internet-only Velle Magazine is getting all Paul Wall on people and sittin' sideways. Very shmancy, but what we're really feeling is this month's V-mag interview/pictorals with two of our favorite people: the photographer Pia Schachter and musician-for-robots the Juan Maclean. Bostonians may remember Pia as the anti-beauty columnist for Stuff at Night and a sometime conspirator with Cynthia Von Buhler. Pia talks about what led a 40-something single mom to become Massachusetts official death-metal den mom and portrait photographer. We've been in love with her death-metal scene portraits for a minute, even if their subjects think the photos make them look a little gay. Pia: soooooo trill. Juan talks about what really happened when he was abducted by aliens. If you're looking into deeper insight about Juan, you should go to his web site and click on diary: he writes just like he talks, and he's one of those people who is just as forthcoming speaking directly to the interweb as he is when he's just hanging out and shooting the shit.

3. Got suckered into watching Grey's Anatomy the other night, and it was almost worth the hour of life lost to be reminded about how good Azure Ray better-half Maria Taylor's solo album is. They played "Song Beneath the Song," which as luck would have it is one of the freebies, so you don't have to go out and buy the TV soundtrack.

LISTEN: Maria Taylor, "Song Beneath the Song" (mp3)
