Slightly short holiday week this time out.

Also at Splice, a short review of Ke$ha’s new album Cannibal, vagina dentata and all.
At Madeloud I review some semi-recent mash-ups.
Sean Collins’ review of High Soft Lisp touches on some issues that came up in this blog’s discussion of Gilbert Hernandez.
