Benedict Radcliffe

Just in case you've BEEN LIVING IN A FUCKING CAVE! I'll link you hideous people to the epicly epic website of Benedict Radcliffe; artist, rider, and all-round nice guy.

His work is so fucking good that when I look at it a little bit of wee comes out.

While we aren't on the subject of music...

...I feel that it's important you click on these links and instantly become a fan of these artists, or please die.

I watched Letterman last night...

...and on it, St Vincents played a song from her new album.

It was pretty good.

Then, I happened to find a link online to the album, Actor, so now I am listening to that and it's pretty good to.

Pitchfork don't mind it, either:

Pitchfork: 8.5
"In "Actor Out of Work", an atypically straightforward rock song early in the album's sequence, Clark uses the title phrase as a sad epithet for an inappropriate yet attractive suitor with an inability to lie convincingly. Acting, of course, is a lot more than just lying and pretending. It's about inhabiting characters, being able to fill in subtext with cadence and gesture, and having the empathy required to understand the motivations and actions of the person being portrayed. With that in mind, the album is perfectly titled, as Actor proves St. Vincent as an artist capable of crafting believable, complicated characters with compassion, insight, and exacting skill."
