  • My Old Kentucky Blog rounds up all the “Umbrella” covers. Tegan & Sara, Mandy Moore, Plain White Ts, Dresden Dolls? Check, check, check, check.

  • Diplo is “journaling” his DJ tour, and his adventures include drunken stage-falls in Baltimore, Russian bootleg CDs, and, apparently, hanging out in the Amazon with his dad.

  • Idolator finds a strong candidate for the “Worst Village Voice Media Music Writer” award. Ooh, it’s so hard to choose!

  • Abba to Zappa ranks the Top Ten Right-Wing Rockers. Elvis, Ted Nugent, we knew about, but Tony Hadley of Spandau Ballet?! I did not know this much is true-hoo-hoo.
  • A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

    We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

    So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

    We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
