Amy Sedaris’s “New Music for Old People”

Over on Slog I wrote about the Amy Sedaris press release annoucing “the completion of the drafting of an agreement that would allow Jerri Blank and the beloved student body and faculty of Strangers With Candy’s Flatpoint High to take up temporary residence in Springfield for the 500th episode of The Simpsons.”

But another chunk of the press release is totally Line Out material:

A mix-tape of Sedaris’ favorite new music—”played by bands that came into being only after the year 2000,” says Sedaris—has been requested by a large upscale retail chain. “We’re tentatively calling it ‘New Music for Old People,’” Sedaris notes. “It’s great new music that these oldsters—many of whom turned away from music entirely during the tragic music scene of the Eighties—have never before heard.”

The press release goes on to announce the possibility of Amy Sedaris line of “personal submersibles” (“We’re looking ahead to see what new products might be needed as the effects of Global Warming become more and more pronounced,” says Sedaris) so who knows if the mix-tape will ever materialize. But, clearly, it should.
