We Shall Fight on the Beaches

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 13:47:13 PDT

I haven't read too much about the source material for Christopher Nolan's seat-rattling bones of war epic Dunkirk, which I finally experienced (and that's the right word) in a late-night Imax showing that severely aggravated my already bothersome Trump Era...



Bridge and Tunnel Kid, Part Seven

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 08:38:04 PST

The Carlyle is one of those New York hotels. Scene of blue-blooded charity dinners through the ages and red-blooded Kennedy trysts (according to legend anyway, but what else do we have really?) the hotel is an elegant and cozy pre-Depression...



Bridge and Tunnel Kid, Part Six

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 07:00:44 PDT

Sister Perry, Baptist Soprano - photo by Beryl Watson, 1983 Celebrity is a strange bolt of cloth. It wraps a mortal being and fashions something more than that, an image or an icon for a idolatrous crowd. When I was...



Bridge and Tunnel Kid, Part Five

Mon, 13 Jan 2014 16:00:32 PST

The phrase "during the war" played an out-sized role in my suburban New York upbringing, and it meant only one conflict - not the Vietnam War, which raged for my entire childhood, producing casualty counts nightly on the CBS Evening...



Bridge and Tunnel Kid, Part Four

Sun, 15 Dec 2013 14:10:39 PST

In his 1946 essay Why I Write, George Orwell fused a writer's development with his personal experiences, and in particular, the times he has lived in. I do not think one can assess a writer’s motives without knowing something of...



Bridge and Tunnel Kid, Part III

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 19:18:30 PST

Columbia University has for years used 854-1754 as its main telephone number, and it is the line that shows up when student volunteers call alumni to seek donations during the dinner hour. It is, I suppose, a clever reminder that...



Bridge and Tunnel Kid, Part II

Wed, 04 Dec 2013 18:34:30 PST

Of all of New York's public buildings, the one I have spent the most time in by far is connected to bridges and tunnels to the north, from the Bronx all the way to the rural Harlem Valley in the...



Bridge and Tunnel Kid

Wed, 04 Dec 2013 06:42:10 PST

There is a spot in Yonkers near a curve on Palmer Road, just up from the intersection of Mile Square Road, high on the hill above the Dunwoodie Golf Course, where on a relatively clear day you can peer from...



Manque Generation

Mon, 06 May 2013 16:25:02 PDT

Without even venturing to the upper reaches of Fifth Avenue, I unreservedly despise the Metropolitan Museum's new Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture, which purports to "examine punk's impact on high fashion from the movement's birth in the early...



The F-Bomb

Tue, 30 Apr 2013 15:12:00 PDT

When I was in the last years of grade school and an underclassman in high school - both Catholic, middle class, and predominantly white - there was one word that almost always guaranteed playground or sandlot bloodshed among adolescent males....
