Towel Art

Thursday, April 07, 2011

Ok. This weirdly off topic, but I gotta mention it. I leave my room at the Rameses Hilton every morning, and when I return in the evening, the nice young men who tidy the room leave a surprise on my bed: Towel Sculptures! The first night it was a swan giving a ride to a small stuffed camel. The second night, I was initially stunned by what appeared to be a small child wrapped in gauze,  before I switched on the light and beheld a an impressive towel-crocodile holding the aforementioned camel in its gaping mouth. Today it's a small man in a robe (thank god it's small - I don't think my heart could take any more life-size renderings) wearing MY hat. Also he 's sleeping on MY side of the bed. What nerve!

Radiohead's Newspaper

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

When Radiohead released the digital version of their eighth album, "The King of Limbs," last month, they dubbed it "the world's first newspaper album." What exactly that meant was the subject of much debate. But the band may have cleared up some of the mystery this week, with the release of "The Universal Sigh," a 12-page print publication distributed by real-life paperboys (and girls) at various points around the globe. We discuss the newspaper - with a look at the state of the print industry - with On the Media host Brooke Gladstone.
