Keeping Up (Vol. 45)

by Darren Paltrowitz

Here are some more quick picks for you, the loyal reader:

ifbyyes_salt_150MUSIC: If By Yes – Featuring members of That Dog, Cibo Matto and Cornelius, If By Yes is most likely a side project for its members. Even so, fans of Bird & The Bee and other lush, tropicalia-influenced pop artists ought to love If By Yes. Their debut album will soon be released on Chimera Music, a label operated by fan and friend Sean Lennon. (chimeramusic.com/ifbyyes.html)

FILM: I Am Comic – A documentary made by former stand-up comic Jordan Brady, I Am Comic shows what it is like to be a modern-day comedian. Switching between interviews with comics as diverse as Sarah Silverman, Jeff Foxworthy and Carlos Mencia, many viewpoints are offered up. Also of interest is the film's sub-plot of veteran comic (and narrator) Ritch Shydner returning on-stage for the first time in almost 15 years. For anyone that enjoys the art of laughter.

RESOURCE: Split The Rent – Ever been in a disagreement about who should be paying for what at home? If so, this Web site could  have probably solved that argument in the matter of moments. A few more resources like this and world peace might not be so difficult, eh? (splittherent.org)
