For this edition of FilmBar’s FilmBlog, I take a look Scorsese’s black comedy “The King of Comedy”.
For this edition of PHX SUX’s local music column, I listened to Soft Shoulder’s latest LP. Here’s my thoughts on their Songs and Intermissions LP (along with some tangents on music books and Silver Apples).

For this week’s FilmBar FilmBlog, I wrote a piece about Robin Williams’ greatest film role: The Fisher King.

One of my most recent pieces for Phoenix New Times is an overview of Jeff Rosenstock (with a focus on his most recent album’s take on gentrification).

I meant to say that this was a very pleasant surprise and I’m thrilled to have gotten this kudos.
