    Talk About the Passion

    There's a book by Wim Wenders, Emotion Pictures, articles about Kinks albums and genre flicks and other inspirations of his, written as he was turning from a critic into a director. What sticks with me is how he explained the power of great westerns:...

    Welcome to the Jingle

    Giggly Japanese girls proclaim, "We love dancing," and then follow with some of the least persuasive "Yay"s in the history of applause, while fast drum'n'bass beats skitter around them. But the vocal and the guitar riff very much do not signify "jung...

    Net-Surfing Cheetahs With Hearts Full of Outtakes

    Young DJ With a Horn
