Belated Reaction to Kickstarter’s Apology

When everything went down with the “How to Sexually Assault Women” PUA Kickstarter project, I was incensed.  It was just one more insult added to the barrage of sexist, misogynistic, and hateful rhetoric hurled at women and good men in what appears to be a banner year for this kind of bullshit. And it was one more piece of evidence that the shitty men are winning.  The PUA piece of shit earned $16K for his project, and impressionable and lonely men who backed the project will get...

Where these two passions come to an elegant union, however, is storytelling. I don’t mean spinning a yarn though, I mean true, honest, storytelling. For most of my childhood I was either considered a weirdo or a confidante because I was...

How to Have Opinions About Art

Posted on Jun 12, 2013 in Blog, Reviews, Writing | 0 comments

In my former life, I was a theater reviewer, gallerist, and curator. I continue to be a passionate advocate for artists and will always be a great lover of art. Last year, I posted a sarcastic-as-hell blog post How to Write Bad Reviews. But I realize that people might actually be interested in how to be better armchair art critics. In an effort to replace snark with substance, I’d like to offer amateur reviewers some tips for writing useful and insightful reviews of books, film, and...
