The Lizzo Experience!


The Prelude.

At the movies: Halloween Ends.


Messy, uneven, and yet quantum leaps ahead of Halloween Kills in terms of ambition and quality.

At the disco.

 Just me, writing about Italodisco, the Nashville Neuromantic scene, and my fave bar in the city,

At the Drive-In.

 Just me, writing about drive-ins for the Best of Nashville issue.

At the movies: TAR.

 Deeply satisfying and musically exquisite. Also, Nina Hoss rules.

At the movies: Hellraiser (2022).


A new Hellraiser that isn't mercenary or terrible!

At the movies: Bros.

 A delight that occasionally seems at odds with itself but that articulates something I've been trying to find in art for awhile now. 

Lil Nas X.


I wrote about Lil Nas X.



I got to talk to Lauren Mayberry from Chvrches, and it was awesome.

At the movies: Brahmastra Part One: Shiva.


A visual feast that shows how to do this kind of film with panache and color.

At the movies: Captain.


I wanted a bit more from this film than I got, but how can you resist a musical remake of Predator?

At the movies: Barbarian.

 An exceptional box of surprises from one of the surviving Whitest Kids U' Know.

At the movies: Jaws in 3D.


I cannot impress upon you how satisfying the 3D conversion of 1975's Jaws is. Just spectacular work across the board.

At the movies: Pink Flamingos.

 Pink Flamingos is turning fifty.

At the movies: Bodies Bodies Bodies.


A smart satire from Halina "Ronnie in Zwartboek" Reijn, with a great Lee Pace critique of heterosexuality.
