Two things in Flagpole this week: a Belle and Sebastian review, and a piece on Billy Joel's first-person love songs and the productive role of bathos in realist art. Give that one a read, at least, I think it turned out very well.

(I love the picture above, by the way--I've never seen it before but the whole scenario fits kind of perfectly with what I'm talking about. There's a bigger version here if you really want to appreciate the expression on Billy's face. It's amazing.)
