Will You Keep All of My Mistakes?

Hours earlier, I arrive at The Casbah in the worst shirt I could find. A Hawaiian button-up that appeared to have been hoisted off of Anthony Bourdain’s back in a 2008 episode of ‘No Reservations’. Something a dad would dress up in while at a Fiesta Island BBQ. Or maybe an outfit that Elliott Gould would wear inside of a Barstow diner.

20 Years Later, ‘Clouds All Day’ Still a Gem

Two guitarists from San Diego have confirmed my belief in God: Buddy Blue and Kevin Ring. Blue could play the ever loving crap out of a blues solo and the image of his greased back hair, cuffed jeans and obligatory snarl will forever seal his place in my top two favorite guitarists I’ve ever known.

Criterion Critique: Z

The political unrest and paranoia of this film mirrors our current social climate to a point beyond familiarity. It makes itself accessible to the populace in a way that is still relevant.

July Wrap-Up: New Editor & New Features

This month we received sad and sudden news: former assistant editor Tom Bevis would be leaving us to deliver a series of lectures at his alma mater, Providence College. With heavy hearts, we bid goodbye to the bearded poet laureate and, in the wake of this vacancy, moved forward with our new assistant editor, Andy Ferguson.
