A scrapbook of stuff I'm reading / looking at / listening to / thinking about...

I tweeted this a few days ago and got some excellent responses, so I wanted to share them here:
Paul Zollo’s Songwriters on Songwriting seems to be the classic text on the subject
Bill Flanagan’s Written in My Soul: Conversations with Rock’s Great Songwriters (Flanagan went on to create VH1’s Storytellers)
The NYTimes’ “Measure for Measure” blog, where “Songwriters pull back the curtain on their creative process”
The Guardian’s “How We Made” series where “two collaborators on a seminal art work talk us through their original creative process.” Several of the columns are about songs: the Four Tops’ “Reach Out,” Ben E. King and Mike Stoller on “Stand By Me,” The Kinks on “You Really Got Me,” etc.
The podcast Song Exploder, though not necessarily about songwriting, is great for recording nerds
What am I missing?
