Clicky clicky clicky...

The diaries of Franz Kafka, 1910-1923. This is the same kind of idea as the famous Pepys Diary, publishing a famous diary as a blog. Everyone's favourite entry is here. (Hat tip: DJ/Rupture's Mudd Up).

I love this elliptical post at aworks.

Alex Ross is back (hope Canada was good for you), with a few great Schoenberg links, plus an article on classical music and recording (longer version also in the New Yorker, but I can't find a link to it online thanks to Greg in the comments, who points me here).

Mwanji has some more jazz links for y'all.

Lynn at Reflections in D minor has this week's Carnival of Music.

In the papers, the New York Times bigs up composers outside the contemporary canon;

and Public Enemy diss 50 Cent and the Game.

And last but not least, here's an outstanding post from Wayne & Wax on reggaetón, Fruity Loops and snare samples.
