The Week at Paste
It was a busy week at Paste. Several Paste staffers returned from Sasquatch, we welcomed Ben Sollee by the office for a performance, celebrated two upcoming arrivals into the Paste family with a double shower, said hello to a brand new crop of interns, and oh yeah, I started a blog. Here's a little round-up of what was going on at PasteMagazine.com this week:
Rainn Wilson video from Sasquatch
Rainn Wilson goes toe-to-toe (at least that's how I hope it was) with our own Jason Killingsworth, complaining that his favorite band The National has gotten all uppity since their album landed #1 on Paste's Best of 2007 list.
New CD Releases
Reviews of new album from Fleet Foxes, Sam Phillips and Martha Wainwright.
Film of the week - Kung Fu Panda
Continuing my kids' theme this week, I took my young 'uns to a screening of Kung Fu Panda. Read the review here.
