Didn't get much out of this one. Lots of mediocre art, some short stories that didn't resonate, and music by "They Might be Giants." A short piece about the collecting habits of Walker Evans was probably the most interesting bit to me. ( )

The idea for this issue is really interesting: A collection of short stories and works of art, each with a companion piece of music on the accompanying CD by They Might Be Giants, with contributions by others including Philip Glass and Mike Doughty. Unfortunately, most of the art included is not very good, but some of it is at least amusing---and the short stories are pretty good for the most part. Likewise for the music, the tracks that accompany the art selections are mostly just okay, but the ones that go along with the stories are generally more substantial, longer and better. ( )

Can't go wrong with a TMBG inspired McSweeney's! CD provided in back too! ( )
