in CSM-related news, I’m reminded that M.I.A. and myself are alumnus. A fine art student before deciding to become a musician and performer. It’s all related, of course, but I like the idea that fine art is something you can exit, and likewise enter, at any point in your life. One field of study influences another, and it’s all just a giant weaving.

M.I.A. also maintains a blog (powered by WordPress no less) where she gives away non-DRM mp3s.
