Jay Reatard.

Jay Reatard, the biggest talent in Memphis thriving garage-punk scene, was found dead in his house this morning, according to the Memphis Commercial-Appeal. Way too me recent RIPs for Memphis musicians. I hear there might be some sort of tribute coming on KABF tomorrow round 10 p.m. With lots of Willie Mitchell songs, too.

Little Rock novelist Kevin Brockmeier served as guest editor for the newly released “Real Unreal: The Best American Fantasy 3” (Underland Press Books, paperback, $14.95). The collection includes stories by Stephen King, Peter S. Beagle and Jeffrey Ford.

Vulture provides a handy explanation of how Simon Cowell's "The X Factor" works and why it's likely to supplant "Idol."
