The Blotter is an online publication focused on true crime storytelling, which I am mad for. I write for them (as I did today) every now and then.

Jim McKay had to tell the whole world about this horrible thing that had happened and the lives lost so needlessly. He kept his cool, did it with dignity and humanity. There were many heroes on that terrible, awful day. He was one of them.

Please remove the fruit bowl immediately. It's distracting me from the donuts.

Anyone who doesn't think hip-hop belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I suggest you do two things: 1) Take a basic history of American Music class and 2) take your greviences to likes of future inductees like Dave Grohl, Tom Morello and Trent Reznor who think you are full of shit.

Talking Pictures (the podcast I do with David Dylan Thomas) has finished out 2015 with a Best of Episode featuring our favorite movies and film-related trends from 2015. Spoken of: Creed, Spotlight, Inside Out, several great documentaries, thoughtful rebooting of beloved movie genres and the prevailing winds of feminism and gender parity in filmmaking tilting us in the right direction cinematically for 2016.

More to come, sooner, in 2016. That's a promise.

I wrote this thing about what happens to an actors career when they play a real life criminal.
