unlikely connections

I'm a big fan of Momus, the eye-patched musician-cum-cultural-commentator who writes a column for Wired. He writes about almost everything, from design to music to pop culture and to all things Japanese, and I find him always insightful and funny. I guess, most of all, I like his endless capacity to make the most unlikely type of connections. Writing in his own blog, he tells what he's up to: "I was in Scotland, then had a couple of days back in Berlin to write my next Wired column (connecting Apple's Get a Mac ads to Norman Mailer's essay The White Negro)".
What he'll come up with I have no idea but I'm already looking forward to reading it. His Wired columns here.
