If you haven’t happened upon these folks already, check out VOL. I Brooklyn. Pithy, smart, and refreshingly down to earth, they’re a Brooklyn based arts and culture blog that covers everything from books, to music, to scrapbooking hilarious news clips and quotes. Though admittedly “literary-minded,” beyond their ability to wisely geek out about great books which you might not have heard of, what keeps me coming back is the simplicity of the format – they like lists and links and lots of ’em – and their fondness for marginalia. (Also, Brooklyn Vegan is one of the “People They Like.” Check plus.)
Some post which made my recent favorites:
– Tobias Carroll’s review of Prose. Poems. a novel. by Jamie Iredell
– Dear New York Magazine – Vol I BK’s letter to New York Mag about their top 40 songs that define Brooklyn “sound” right now * Side note – Nice St. Vincent shout-out. “Marry Me,” please, do so.
