“Chocolate City is no dream, it’s my part of the rock, and I dig ya CC.”

— George Clinton, “Chocolate City”

The picks of the week from around the web.

  • Parliament: “Chocolate City”. Emphatically the track of the week. Listen to it here, and go here for the classic album.
  • Gore Vidal on BBC’s election night. An unexpectedly surreal appearance by the (in)famous writer. This guy’s a legend.
  • Bob James’ “Nautilus.” One of the most sampled tunes gets its due in this survey of its progeny. It’s been done to death, and it still yields an awesome break.
  • ActuaBD: Moebius interview. This is not exactly news, but still worth checking for — a lengthy, interesting interview with Moebius who’s experiencing something of a comeback to comics at the moment. Parts 1, 2, 3.
