Twitter is Killing English?

Actor Ralph Fiennes made headlines last week when he claimed that the rise of social networking is ruining the English language, stating that "I think we’re living in a time when our ears are attuned to a flattened and truncated sense of our English language, so this always begs the question, is Shakespeare relevant? But I love this language we have and what it can do, and aside from that I think the themes in his plays are always relevant." (Source)

Cultfever

A few tracks, recommended by B, from a Brooklyn-based band on the verge of blowing up.
 

Through a mass of synths, guitars and gorgeous voices, Cultfever adorns sturdy pop songs with irresistible mystery.

Their eponymous debut, slated for a 1 November 2011 release, delivers 9 vignettes where they experiment with electronics and soaring choruses.
