Some readers may be wondering just what is going on with my various blogs. Last fall I announced that I was moving to the New Yorker's bustling site, which generously offered me a base. Lately, though, I've found myself gravitating back to the present site: it's somehow irresistible to post here at all hours of the day and night. What we've decided is that The Rest Is Noise will remain my main base for shorter, breezier matter—news items, links, tidbits, audio clips, cat pictures, etc., as well as, of course, material related to my books—while Unquiet Thoughts will feature, on a more occasional basis, slightly longer pieces related to my magazine writing or musical matters of the day. I'm not sure whether anyone out there cares one way or another, but I thought I'd clear things up.
