  • Harrowing. Comments are pretty spicy.
  • Riffs for sale.
  • Armond White must be the most talked about (and argued over) movie critic in the world.
  • How gay.
  • Towards a new art?
  • How to take this as anything but parody? Someone should write a screenplay about a down-on-his luck male writer who finds success posting wild feminist screeds on the internet. It’ll be like “Tootsie” for the 21st century.
  • World’s greatest tortoise?
  • I’ve always considered “the great American novel” to be a BS phrase that critics throw around when they want to call attention to themselves. So I guess this means that critics aren’t interested in over-praising women authors? Or something?
  • Fiat everything! (H/T Foseti)
  • This is one of my favorite Nova episodes. Highly recommended if you’re into art, collecting, or detective stories. On Netflix Instant.
  • Maybe the Redskins should change their name to the Washington Elizabeth Warrens?
  • Nice collection of Gene Mack’s ballpark drawings from the ’30s and ’40s. They’re done in a cartoon style, yet for me they have a soaked-in-experience realism, one that comes through in quirks and minute details. I’m reminded of the paintings of the Northern Renaissance with their “realism of particulars” as opposed to Italy’s realism of perspective and anatomy.
  • Mark Dice’s petition pranks are great arguments against democracy.

  1. I remember those baseball drawings. I used to spend a lot of time staring at them, getting into the details and annotations … They semi-defined what I thought pro baseball looked like and felt like, come to think of it. Never occurred to me as a kid (the only time I paid attention to baseball) that there was a real guy behind them, let alone to give him any thought. Gene Mack, eh? Interesting guy as well as an interesting body of work?
