July edition: Mary Lamey, Nick Cave, Frank Sinatra, Havana and ice cream

July 11, 2009

Welcome to the July edition of the webzine 11th ave, which includes a couple of changeups. Oh yeah. Fourth edition and already it’s time for a makeover. But that’s how I roll. Try to keep up. Here’s a rundown of the bounty in this issue. (Mother: Click on the links or just keep scrolling.)

  1. Mary Lamey gets serious. Except when she’s not. She’s this month’s Proust Questionnaire 5.0 victim.
  2. The resident deejay at 11th ave. spins tunes with an Aussie … Oh, why bother with the charade? In this month’s sountracking, Jordan Zivitz has found another way to write about Nick Cave.
  3. I got nothing in terms of my own original writing this month. 11th ave giveth and it taketh away. So I turned to my close personal friend Gay Talese. The fine print is a new feature at 11th ave that will showcase excellent writing from other people. In the debut outting, the fine print features the classic 1966 Gay Talese essay Frank Sinatra Has a Cold.
  4. Another new feature is snap, which will showcase photographs. This month’s snap comes from the Havana waterfront.
  5. The food categories have been trimmed to one. Food blog of the month is taking a break. But the recipe feature read, cook, eat is back and it’s delivering on a sweet promise: five-minute ice cream.

Enjoy and thanks  for dropping by.
