I love being busy, and I think I do a pretty good job at it, but Donald Glover puts me and every other workaholic out there to shame. He’s hilarious on television and on stage, he makes kickass music, and he tours the country doing a blend of both. I’m not exactly sure how he […]
Full disclosure, I do a lot of hosting work for these guys, so I’m biased. But I started as a fan, and I still think that Radio 3 is light years ahead of anyone else when it comes to internet broadcasting. If there’s any justice, in a few years when internet radio is the norm, […]
I hit a point a couple of years ago where I started to feel over saturated with entertainment media. I got fed up reading reviews and articles and just kind of stopped seeking it all out. The one exception was the AV Club, which provides consistently insightful and compelling commentary on all manners of entertainment.
I have a reputation among my friends as the guy who likes the dumbest movies. It’s well deserved, and I never turn down the chance to eat a giant bucket of popcorn while things explode on an enormous screen in front of me. Meek’s Cutoff is the slowest movie I’ve ever seen, and seems like […]

A lot of people I know unjustly think of Randy Newman as the perennial Oscar-contending writer of schlocky soundtrack songs. I thought that myself. But buying the first volume of this series started me on the path to redemption.

He has a pretty dark past, and his openness about it seems to draw the same honesty out of his guests. His two hour long talk with Louis C.K, in particular, is one of the best interviews I’ve ever heard [listen below].

I’ve bought a lot of music over the years, but this has to be the most beautiful package I’ve ever seen. I usually bemoan the lengths to which bands are forced to go to sell physical records, but if illegal downloading can result in something this amazing, maybe it isn’t all bad. Also, the music […]
