Noted in passing

Austin’s Andy Langer singles out the Jimmy Reed classic “Hush Hush” as recorded by Omar Kent Dykes and Jimmie Vaughan for On the Jimmy Reed Highway, listing it first among “The 8 Best Songs You Probably Didn’t Hear This Year” (Esquire magazine, December issue, pag 46). >>> Austin start-up Debix garnered a two-paragraph tout in a half-page article entitled “In ID Theft, Some Victims See Opportunity” (NYT, 11/16/07, byline Brad Stone). As the article describes it, the Debix concept is an interesting and promising approach. >>> And from the “Domain” feature in yesterday’s NYT, we learn that Jimmy Wales, of Wikipedia fame, reports that his favorite band is the Gourds, described as “a band from Austin, Tex., that does an alternative country cover of a Snoop Dogg song.”
