He says that in light of the tragedy in Tucson, lawmakers need to diffuse their divisive rhetoric. “Instead of shouting ‘you lie’ when the president addresses Obamacare,” said Wilson, “I will yell out something more [...]

New York Sports Bars for the Sports-Averse

It’s playoff season. If you hate sports as much as I do, but hate missing out on the gluttony, I’ve got a new piece for you on The Awl: With the NFL playoffs underway, multitudes of jock-averse women and effeminate, girlie men (like me) find themselves facing a challenging predicament over the next couple of weeks.

Meet the Humanimal: Alex Kovas

I interviewed the Humanimal for Vice: If you’re one of the few who saw Guy Ritchie’s latest film, RocknRolla, you may recall a scene where a Chechnyan thug chases Gerard Butler through a tunnel. The pursuer in question is a strikingly buff 34-year-old Russian-born Londoner named Alex Kovas, a model/actor who may be more familiar to you licking his “paws” [...]

The Late Great Planet Earth

My latest piece over at The Awl: As crazy as it seems now, when I was a freshman in high school I was convinced that my life was going to end, healthy and unadulterated, sometime before December 31st 1988.

Krampus Comes This Weekend!

A new piece on Krampus by yours truly over at The Awl: Christmas is nearly upon us and, with all its commercialism and saccharine rituals, it’s all too easy to forget the true meaning of the season.

Vintage Jesus Freaks Psychedelia

Aquarium Drunkard just posted an interesting compilation of Christian psychedelia from the sixties and seventies: This is so good. A couple of weeks back the guys at Crescere shot me an email hipping me to their latest creation; a two part compilation of super-obscure, often private press, outsider psychedelic guitar and folk music from the 60s and 70s… all with [...]

An Ode to Vinyl Siding in Williamsburg

The New York Times included a short quote by yours truly in this article on vinyl siding. And yes, I really do live in a pink building. To Mr. Canfield, replacing vinyl siding that is in good shape, as some homebuyers do as soon as they have the deed, is like carelessly restoring antiques that came over on the Mayflower. [...]
