Between & Beyond: True Detective

If you’ve read this column before, my contempt for television should come as no surprise. Besides it being a mouthpiece for the status quo and a tool for coercion and value-shaping, it’s just straight-up bad for art. I could never stand the cheap storytelling involved when stretching a show out…

Rant ‘N’ Roll: Stones Rolling

Longevity is a pretty damn good reason to be thought of as “The World’s Greatest Rock ‘N’ Roll Band,” and although I’ve heard the nay-sayers grumble their snark, how many bands can stay rockin’ in a 48-year span? The Rolling Stones Live 1965: Music From` Charlie Is My Darling’

Reality Check: Readers’ Responses

Okay, I get it. Christie fucked up. (LAST CHANCE POWER DRIVE – Issue: 1/5/14) But enough already with these obsessions. The Left got on the Right for obsessing on Benghazi and now this? It is getting ridiculous. The man stood up and took the heat. He said he didn’t know…
