For those of you who’d like to get some extra credit on yesterday’s assignment, two pieces, one short and one long:
Roy Edroso at Alicublog, on James Brown. (This is the short one.)
Philip Gourevitch in the New Yorker, on James Brown. (Long.) The latter contains a detailed description of his show that pretty much matches the one I saw, but is, of course, about a million times better than my description.
