Always trust your iPod. Ours has been heavy on the Big Star all weekend (“Radio City” if you must know). As we live life in random, we figured it was a sign. Alex Chilton is alive and well, though no longer in Memphis:

Chilton, who hadn’t been heard from since shortly after Hurricane Katrina struck, told Easley he stayed in his home the entire time and water had gotten up to his porch. Chilton said he had food and water but was most concerned during the week about roving gangs.

(via the very helpful Tod Goldberg; and, yeah, we stole from the same song. It happens.)
