The third installment of my Pitchfork column Ordinary Machines is up, and it is about digital grief, virtual cemetery experiences, and the late folk singer Judee Sill. It was partially inspired by something Kate Durbin said in this interview recently (“…the social media age is changing our cultural relationship to death. I think the internet has made us feel closer to the dead, like some Eastern or Native American traditions, where the dead are always close at hand”) and it is dedicated to the memory and the comfortingly, mischievously enduring Twitter feed of somebody very special.
