Is this a new thing for you, Google +? I continue to waffle about FB, but Google Plus seems not really a substitute.

Drama On The Installment Plan
I’ve been listening this week to the podcast Serial . Lauded as a The Next Big Thing in a recent NYT article, Serial , from the producers of Public Radio’s This American Life , is a collection of podcasts chronicling a present-day investigation by the podca...

The Nostalgia Whore Strikes Again
Other pictures here . Years ago I built a house in the woods in central Minnesota. Well, I undertook a range of tasks to that end, though a lot of key pieces of the process—framing, concrete work, siding, roofing—were done by others. Anyway, that’s a long t...

Wading Into The Teeming Masses
I have been a fanatical Diet Coke drinker for 35 years. It's been a lifelong obsession, nearly, and a constant accompaniment to my daily doings. Decades have gone by where I did not fail to have one in hand or ready-to-hand, 24 hours a day. I carried my mug...

Oh Vwah, FaceBook, Part the Third
Continuing my exploration of the pointless, I’ve recently deactivated my FaceBook page.  This is the third or fourth time I’ve done this. The first time was to jettison some really odious “friends” who had made their way onto my news feed. The other time or...

High Noon In Paris
I’ve always had a thing for Paris.  OK, there’s something really unimaginative in that, I know; it’s surely America’s favorite foreign destination (which kind of taints the place). And it was the first foreign place I ever visited as an adult under my own s...

Wait. What Just Happened?
Here’s another in my very popular line of posts under the category of “Stuff Everybody Else Figured Out In Their Formative Years But Which I’m Only Now In My Dotage Deciding What The Hell I Think.” So lately I’ve been immersed in George R. R. Martin’s Game ...

Westward The Wagons
I usually leave a theater with some kind of preliminary conclusion about a film, but as often as not my initial impressions age and morph and solidify with the passage of a little time. Not always, but certainly with ambitious or complex films. If Christoph...

It's A Gusher!
I recently finished the audiobook of Upton Sinclair 's 1927 novel Oil! Readers may know the novel as the basis for Paul Thomas Anderson's 2007 film There Will Be Blood (a movie which I admired but did not like , exactly). But having now sampled both, I thin...

Who You Gonna Call?
It's been a week of movies for me. Stuck in Louisville for work and twice-annual training, I've had a number of days free and a fella can study only so much (or, in my case, almost not at all). And after removing my FaceBook page from life support (a topic ...

Nobody Knows Anybody, Not That Well
Today’s movie: Michaël R. Roskam’s The Drop . This is James Gandolfini’s last film, though he gets second billing here to the very versatile Tom Hardy. Based on the Dennis Lehane short story “Animal Rescue,” Hardy plays Bob Saginowski, a bartender in a grit...
