  • Me and buddy boy, live on @ferndaleradio 100.7. Block rockin’ beats.

  • Proud to be included in Hunter Vaughan and Tom Conley’s new & wonderful anthology on screen media theory for Anthem – academics, ask your library to order a copy. @the_green_fuse http://www.anthempress.com/the-anthem-handbook-of-screen-theory

  • Helluva interview by @nickschifrin of John Bolton on the @PBSNewshour tonight. https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/john-bolton-north-korea-has-not-taken-effective-steps-to-denuclearize

  • Double feature tonight: Won’t You Be My Neighbor? and MI:6. If I ever need an Impossible Missions Force, I’m calling Agent McFeeley, Agent Aberlin, Agent Negri, Agent Brockett and the gang. #manywaystosayiloveyou

  • T-shirt spotted in the wild: “There’s nothing a little Starbucks and Disney can’t fix!” Might I suggest “false consciousness”?

  • Just saw a dude who had to be sixty rocking a vintage Neutral Milk Hotel t-shirt at the grocery store: the dream of the nineties is alive at #TraderJoes

  • A sign you should leave the restaurant you just walked into: they’re playing Blues Traveler on the sound system.

  • Frederick Wiseman’s films available on Kanopy! https://www.kanopy.com/category/supplier/zipporah-films

  • .@PaulKrugman: Centrists who couldn’t find real examples of serious, honest conservatives lavished praise on politicians who played that role on TV. The narrative required that the character Ryan played exist, so everyone pretended that he was the genuine article. nyti.ms/2JJvre7
