Hi, everyone! Welcome to the first entry in our very own “news round-up” series. A lot of things seem to happen that are difficult to expand into a full-on article, but remain worth pointing out just the same. And seeing as my rapidly ending Ph.D. program really intensifies the problem, I thought that this might be a nice way to capture some of those stray articles that seem to be piling up. So, follow me, and I’ll show you news from Stars, The Vaselines, David Byrne, and more!
