I am a Letterboxd boy now

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 05:25:45 +0000

Every year and every break-up — but I repeat myself — brings a new burst of pointless creativity. This year’s burst has been spent on Letterboxd, the handy film website that turns your experience into charts, lists, and data, all … Continue reading

Movies of 2017

Fri, 22 Dec 2017 17:06:24 +0000

It was a busy year, for reasons no one on the Internet needs remembering. The version of me that could watch 75+ new movies in a year is gone, long gone. The version that actually was around for first weekends … Continue reading

Let’s hear it for mediocrity!

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 17:32:45 +0000

Like many busy people, I spend roughly 40 percent of my waking life wasting time on the internet. The problem: The many commentators and reviewers who pollute the internet only ever talk about good TV shows and movies. Nobody wants … Continue reading

June 12-22: “The Show That Never Ends” is on tour

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 00:35:37 +0000

I spent the last four years writing “The Show That Never Ends,” a history of/argument for progressive rock music, and it comes out on June 13. You should buy it no matter where you live. But if you are lucky … Continue reading

The worst criminal to come out of Detroit

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 14:23:10 +0000

I was speeding; sure, I won’t deny that. It was 8:20 or so on Super Bowl Sunday, and I was returning my rental car at Detroit’s airport before jumping on a 10:00 flight to Minneapolis for a story. Detroit, like … Continue reading

From time to time, until November 8, people last year would ask me how much I was loving the political circus. “It must be the story of your career,” they’d say. “Well, yes,” I would say. “Much like Joan Didion … Continue reading

Movies of 2016

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 17:10:37 +0000

I do a version of this every year. The campaign and my book deadline made this year’s explorations a little more limited — which is fine. I have maybe 10 more to see in order to not be befuddled by … Continue reading

Both sides do it!

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 09:26:31 +0000

I’ve been traveling for work, so — maybe blessedly — I didn’t initially see this AP story by two reporters I like very much personally. It’s no patch on them when I say that “Welcome to the Trump-Clinton conspiracy election” … Continue reading

Little Furry Things

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 10:20:42 +0000

Zootopia (Howard/Moore/Bush, 2016) A terrifying and unrelenting vision of a world long after the apocalypse, where only mammals survived, and built their own civilization with all of the mistakes that zoomed humanity. Nah, fuck it, this is a kid’s movie … Continue reading

The blog where it happens

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 18:52:20 +0000

This is a model takedown, and a lot of fun even if you’re not so much a “Hamilton” hater so much as a person who can’t understand how your friends had the time and foresight to see this thing.   … Continue reading
