  4. ‘Parks and Recreation’s’ Nick Offerman: Manly-Man

    Big mustachioed actor Nick Offerman has been the surprise breakout star — alongside Amy Poehler — of NBC’s quirky comedy “Parks and Recreation.” Offerman plays Ron Swanson –red meat-eating, government-hating, manly-man who works for the show’s little fictional city of Pawnee, Indiana. The gruff government worker and libertarian who detests government. The director of parks and recreation who wants to shut down public parks. Privatize. Offerman’s macho, hunting, wood-working Ron Swanson is a hot item. Up next On Point: actor and ambivalent manly-man icon, Nick Offerman.

  5. Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen And ‘Eminent Hipsters’

    If you want to know what aging rock stars are thinking on stage when they’re still touring at 65, be careful about asking Steely Dan frontman Donald Fagen. He hates an awful lot of it. Feels like a performing monkey, he writes. Daydreams about a fire in the hall. Sees a crowd so old he wants to call out bingo numbers. Yikes! Steely Dan was giant in the 1970s. Jazz-pop with a lineage of inspiration that Fagen lays out in a new memoir. The “eminent hipsters,” he writes, that lit up his world. Earl Hines, Charles Mingus, more. Up next On Point: Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen on the life, and “eminent hipsters.”

  10. Kreative Kontrol #24: Steve Albini

    Steve Albini is a man who lives in Chicago, Illinois and owns and operates the really remarkable Electrical Audio Recording facility. He is the guitar player and primary singer in the band Shellac and he makes a mean cup of fluffy coffee. The 1993 album In Utero by the Washington-State-based band Nirvana is among the thousands of records that Albini has engineered over the course of his time doing that sort of thing and earlier this summer he gave the songs from those sessions fresh mixes for the 20th anniversary edition of In Utero, which is due out in North America on September 24. In our past midnight conversation, Steve discussed his interesting history with Kurt Cobain, his abandoned work with Fugazi, the stories behind making In Utero, why the new edition of the record was mastered to sound the best it possibly can, the highs and lows of the relatively recent rash of remastered reissues that record buyers face each and every day, the mostly good but surprisingly sad and surreal professional aftermath of making In Utero, how it might have changed his life, how the new Shellac LP’s test pressings are on route to the band and artwork is close to finalized (also the new Bottomless Pit record is done!), and why he doesn’t care about Breaking Bad but can tolerate The Newsroom.
