In which I pretend to be a film theorist


After I saw the new Terrence Malick film To The Wonder and my date (SATAN WAS SO OVER IT illustrator Nate McDonough) and I correctly anticipated a scene in which an ethereal women enjoys spontaneity in a sun drenched wheat field, I penned this piece for Vice about one of my favorite good directors. To summarize, "Adorno > Heidegger".

Also check out my prior essay on Michael Haneke, part of my ongoing "Why Not?" series on directors I like. I can't believe some people get to do this for work.

New piece on Gothamist + DPRS #14 THURSDAY APRIL 24th

I'm excited to announce that I wrote this piece for the popular NYC website Gothamist about the shortage of bathrooms for poor people in NYC and how its not all some big misunderstanding. 

In other news, Death Panel Reading Series turned 14, got into punk, started hanging around radical book stores and said FUCK YOU DAD, I don't need you telling me what to do, and I don't want you on my flier!

Join Muggs Fogerty, Aria Boutet, A.M. Gittlitz, and yours truly for a memorable evening of prose and poetry at one of my favorite book stores, Human Relations (1067 Flushing Ave in Bushwick, located next door to HI MANGO!)

Incidentally A.M. and I spent the weekend in lovely Pittsburgh where we visited the Cyberpunk dudes, hung out on a capsized boat, met a ton of awesome comic artists, and read at their top notch series, the Writer's Showcase. Videos coming soon.
