Donald Glover

Graham Wright Reader Find

By Graham Wright in New Music on Thursday 22 September 2011

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 […]

CBC Radio 3 online broadcasting

Graham Wright Reader Find

By Graham Wright in Cool Websites on Wednesday 21 September 2011

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, […]

The AV Club

By Graham Wright in New Trends on Tuesday 20 September 2011

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.

Meeks’ Cutoff

Graham Wright Reader Find

By Graham Wright in New Film on Monday 19 September 2011

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 Moment In The Sun by John Sayles

Graham Wright Reader Find

By Graham Wright in New Art on Thursday 15 September 2011

A lot of people recommend that I get a Kindle, or other such ‘e-book’ reading device, because I’m on tour so much and lugging around several books isn’t practical. This book, all 968 pages of it, would be exhibit A in their case of why books are a pain to carry, but to me it’s […]

The Randy Newman Songbook Vol. II

Graham Wright Reader Find

By Graham Wright in New Music on Saturday 20 August 2011

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.

What The Fuck podcast with Marc Maron

Graham Wright Reader Find

By Graham Wright in New Trends on Saturday 16 July 2011

I’m not really a big comedy guy, but Marc Maron’s long and in-depth interviews with his fellow comedians transcend that niche to become absolutely compelling listening. 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].

Okkervil River: I Am Very Far deluxe box set edition

Graham Wright Reader Find

By Graham Wright in New Music on Wednesday 29 June 2011

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 […]
