A day late and a dollar short, as usual, but here we go:
My review of the rock 'n' pop writing anthology SHAKE IT UP is live at Los Angeles Review of Books, one of my favorite sites for criticism. A lot of leftovers from this one which I hope to get posted here in an "Extended Thoughts" section.
Also, my latest column is up at PopMatters. This one takes a look at the new season of TWIN PEAKS through Lynch's use of the episode-ending musical performances and my pathological need to imagine these musicians as local to Twin Peaks.
More updates coming soon on Nothing Has Been Done Before, out this November.
