Baz Luhrmann, the director responsible for the most recent cinematic incarnation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, has a knack for compiling amazing soundtracks…and this one is no exception. The film is full of dazzling shots of confetti tumbling through the air onto throngs of merry revelers, accompanied by thundering, contemporary R&B beats and swinging 1920s jazz. The soundtrack, though excellent it is (with stunning contributions by Jay Z, Beyoncé with André 3000, The xx, Lana del Ray, and many others), focuses more on contemporary music and may not satiate your urgent need to do the Charleston in your living room.
Here are a few excellent box sets and compilations in our collection to help you out with that…
Listen to This! is a weekly music column by Popular Library Music Geek/Reference Librarian Steve Kemple, featuring off-the-beaten-path music from the library’s collection. It is also a twice-monthly listening program held every 2nd and 4th Wednesday night at 7pm in the Popular Library Department at the Main Library.

This past year marked the 25th Anniversary of the Graphics Interchange Format. From its humble beginnings at Netscape, to its current prominence in today’s Tumblr-driven culture, the GIF has come a long way, bb.
All this week, in honor of the Lifetime Achievement Award GIF inventor Steve Wilhite is receiving at this year’s Webbys we will be celebrating GIF WEEK. It’s like shark week but way, way better.
I’ll be cold and buried before I recognize the soft G.
FWIW, LibraryLinkNJ is on Team Soft G. Emphasis above mine.
Having done multiple informal polls among some Cincinnati Library staff, I can say that we have not yet reached a consensus on this issue.
