Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I recently recommended the Decemberists to a fellow English teacher, and described them as "music for English majors." After thinking about this, I want to put together a mix CD using that theme.
Besides a few Decemberists songs, I thought of the following:
Morrissey - Billy Budd
Kate Bush - Wuthering Heights
Boo Radleys - Wake Up Boo!
My Latest Novel - the Reputation of Ross Francis
I'm also figuring I could put some Magnetic Fields and Belle & Sebastian on there... I'm pretty much looking for anything that can be considered "literate Indie rock" or something that wouldn't be totally out of place with the aforementioned songs. They don't have to directly relate to literature or have clever titles that evoke authors or book titles, but I'm interested in those, too. So... any recommendations?
