Pulp, “That Boy’s Evil” I’m probably the only person in the entire world who would put this on a list of their favorite Pulp songs.
Today is a harrowing rollercoaster of emotions.
On the one hand, a large sum of money that I have been waiting for for a very long time was just direct deposited into my account. On the other hand, Pulp tickets sold out in less than a minute. LESS THAN A MINUTE.
Warren’s confusion brings to light a deep and longstanding anxiety in the...– Eugenia Williamson’s article about the literary gender bias at NPR is worth reading, although I’m not sure that singling out NPR for reviewing male writers 67% of the time makes sense when 60% of all novels put out last year by major publishing houses were by men. I mean, yes, that...

Federal Hill: Nancy’s Fancies (294 Atwells Ave. 401-421-2253,...– I know the point of travel articles isn’t to ask locals what their opinions about things are, but this Providence vs. Boston article in the Globe is kind of hilarious in how its vision of Federal Hill is so unlike my own. Because who the hell goes to Nancy’s? (And also who the hell...

It's not Lent yet but a boy can dream.
Even though I haven’t been a practicing Catholic since I was a seventh-grader, I like to give something up for Lent every year, partly because I think that’s one of the better things about Catholicism and partly because I tend to get stuck in ruts of various kinds and it’s a good idea to shake things up. For the last five or six years I stopped drinking, and in addition to the...

The Motels, “Total Control” I love this song. Why has no one ever told me about this song before? (As heard on this mix, which is okay but not great, though it does feature extended Tom Cruise dialogue from Magnolia.)
