Sasha Frere-Jones, the longtime pop-music critic for The New Yorker, has left the magazine to join Genius.
Mr. Frere-Jones, 47, said that he chose to leave The New Yorker after 11 years for a variety of reasons. He originally became a critic, he said, because he was frustrated that so many of those who wrote about music were ignorant of its nuances. Geniusís tool addresses that, he said, but unlike crowd-sourced information on Twitter or Facebook, which is rapidly superseded, Geniusís snippets remain easily visible forever.

Kanye West opened up his dream folder last night and, as a result, Twitter exploded. He's either crazy, a genius, or probably a combo of both. We'll see how this goes. What do you think of DONDA?

Lewis Black (of SNL, Daily Show, and HBO fame) is releasing his third CD on April 25th! It's called Lewis Black - The Carnegie Hall Performance. If you haven't had a chance to listen to Lewis's material, consider this a formal welcome to this madman. If you are familiar with him, I'm sure you're pretty excited!

A moment of remembrance please for John Lennon, who was fatally shot on this day 25 years ago.
