Charred 'Remains'

Hey! As regular readers may have noticed, my Remains of the Day roundup has disappeared from my blog. My schedule at my "day job" changed recently, so I no longer have the right time to be able to compile it. As a result, I have been including additional headlines in my Page 1 Roundup, which used to be primarily for news from broadsheets. If things change, I plan to bring "Remains" back. But for now, please look at my morning roundup for lots of fun stuff. I'm writing this because my best friend informed me that he only recently figured this change out -- he just thought I'd abandoned "Remains" -- since he normally views my site on mobile mode and used to skip over Page 1 because he was already reading all of the dailies on his own.

Song of the Day: 'Look on Down From the Bridge' by Mazzy Star

Sad to read about the passing of David Roback, who led the 1980s Paisley Underground favorites known as the Rain Parade -- and later teamed with Hope Sandoval to create some of the best music of the 1990s as one-half of Mazzy Star, including the seminal tracks "Blue Flower," "Give You My Lovin'" and "Fade Into You" and perhaps their finest moment "Halah." I only recently learned he attended Palisades High School and later UC Berkeley with Susanna Hoffs, and that he and his brother his brother Stephen, a bass guitarist, formed a band with the future Bangle called the Unconscious. No cause of death has been released, but Roback was just 61. RIP.
