I forgot how I came across Cynthia Dall. I think lost in a web of cross references on both Pandora and iTunes Music Store while in my “looking for dreamy lo-fi female crooners to bliss out by” phase. Oh yeah, that’s pretty much been my phase for the past year. Anyway, she’s the latest on […]

Today on NPR Melissa Block interviewed Willie Watts of Powder Springs, Georgia in conjunction with a story about how the the Georgia House of Representatives quickly passed a bill that would allow her to keep her homemade fried pie business open. Apparently, after the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper ran an article on her little home-kitchen business […]

V for Vendetta (2006, USA, Theater)

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the iconic “V” (not to be confused with the brilliant first novel V. by Thomas Pynchon, although both share a sense of theatrical subversion) is the iconic “W” (yes, that W) cut in half. V for Vendetta is an engaging, literate, razor-edged critique of the logical extreme of […]

We all know how much Windows (’95, 2000, NT, XP, whatever) — a very lame fake copy of the original Mac OS — sucks. Sucks and blows. We all know how every time a virus alert goes out to hapless Windows users, Mac users like me sit back and laugh. How Windows has created employment […]

The Belcourt Theater here in town picked up the low-budget indie film C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America so I just had to see it. I heard on NPR about this satirical documentary look at the history of the United States had the South won the Civil War — oops! I mean The War of […]

Help me! I’m “guilty of a big heart”

All right, somebody at Vanderbilt fingered me as “guilty of a big heart” and offered my name as someone who would willingly participate in the Vanderbilt Lock-up event to raise bucks for “Jerry’s Kids” (Muscular Dystrophy). The bastard wouldn’t release his/her name (“the person has been put in the Witness Protection Program”). Of course, I […]

Prima Donna Soriano

More baseball news: overrated ex-Yankee ex-Ranger Alfonso Soriano, who now plays for the Washington Nationals (what lame team name), decided that he didn’t want to play left field yesterday in a pre-season game. He wants to stay at second base. So, he embarrassed the team and himself by not going out onto the field. What […]
