Music:Having never written a note for percussion (James Tenney) - Sonic Youth - Goodbye 20th Century pt.2
Wow, a graphic novel that might actually be worthwhile
Most of the time, so-called "graphic novels" are just overpriced, slick, gratuitiously R-rated comics. Maybe only Maus and Jimmy Corrigan justify the term. However, X-Force looks intriguing -- a deliberate warping of Marvel's X-Men series sequel that isn't just a toy catalog (read the customer reviews on Amazon). I was hepped to this by this New York Times review.
