Beck produced Mirror Traffic, the upcoming Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks album. Also, Malkmus tells Spin, "Beck ... said he was trying to start a private press of books and that I should get involved ... He asked if I wanted to do something. But I don't know what the status of that yet because, you know, I haven't contributed to it yet. But he's planning a '60s-style private press. Limited editions books of writings, drawings, poetry." Interesting! Also of note from this Malkmus interview: "I was starting to have more luck with getting chicks than in my early 20s [at 28]. I wasn't striking out. But I wasn't ruling either. I didn't know that when I was 32 or 33 that I was going to be able to get even more chicks." And: "My whole family is moving to Berlin for one year. We're renting out our house here in Portland. We'll see what happens after that. We're open-ended. We'll probably come back to Portland, but we're not especially tied to it here. I don't think we'll go back to New York City. We will apparently be living in the Park Slope of Berlin. But I don't want to live in the Park Slope of Park Slope, really." Sorry, where were we? Oh, right, Beck printing press. [Spin]
