I’m hoping to do a Twin Peaks rewatch, if I get enough support. I discussed the project here.

I wrote about Alice Guy-Blaché’s The Cabbage Fairy, sometimes cited as the first narrative film, and unnatural or natural birth.

A little outline of a longer essay on Guy-Blaché.

Utilitarians Everywhere

At Quartz I wrote about how fascism doesn’t make great art.

At Splice Today I wrote about:

freelance panic for the holidays.

Penelope Spheeris’ Decline of Western Civilization and why punk isn’t just for the misogynists.

how Jacobin should give up the celebrity-obsessed identity politics and focus on class analysis.
