MY FAVORITE THINGS – 2019

2019 was a good balance between new music I discovered/enjoyed vs. old tunes I’m continually finding via records. I find that raising a teenager helps with the former and while I would never try to pass myself off – these days – as having a finger of the musical zeitgeist, I think it’s valuable to stay engaged with new music coming out. Anyways…I’m going to flip this from the round-ups of the last few years and start with the old tracks I gave heavy run to last year. (Not in ranked order) 1. The...

On Black Girl Magic and Georgia Anne Muldrow's Latest, 'Overload'

None The song "Vital Transformation" is solemn yet expansive, austere yet hopeful. It floats along, kickdrum and handclap accents punctuating the lyrics instead of marking four-on-the-floor. The song itself a swirl, it begins with the swirling, layered incantation, "transforming changing higher spiraling higher", repeated three times, along with the insistence, "it's vital". The lyrics read like stanzas of poetry on the page, but take on a warm, relatable quality when their author, Georgia Anne...

The Classic Shanghai Divas and the Unintended Exoticism of the Taiwanese Bootleg

It was inevitable, in a monthly PopMatters column called Vinyl Archeology , that the author would reference his own book: Paul's Records: How a Refugee from the Vietnam War Found Success Selling Vinyl on the Streets of Hong Kong ( Blacksmith Books ). This obviously contains an element of self-promotion, but if it's archeology that concerns vinyl, and the metaphorical dig sorts through layer upon layer of degraded artifact, as opposed to an order...

ANNOUNCING THE NEW HEAT ROCKS PODCAST

I couldn’t be more excited to announce, finally, the public launch of my new podcast: Heat Rocks.

HDTGM: A Conversation with Kelli Maroney, Star of ‘Chopping Mall’

Kelli Maroney has a unique skill set: she knows how to survive ’80s horror movies. Between Slayground (1983), Night of the Comet (1984) and this week’s How Did This Get Made? film Chopping Mall (1986), Maroney has a real talent for making it through a slasher flick alive. So naturally, when she and I sat down to speak, I couldn’t help but ask: what does it take to pull of this feat?     “You’ve gotta pace yourself,” Maroney explained. “[You] can’t lose it in the beginning, then you have nowh...

Separating Fact & Fiction In Girlboss

You know how the Nasty Gal origin story goes. An anarchist starts a vintage clothing store on eBay, finds herself at the helm of massive empire, and then, the much-hyped empire goes bankrupt. With Girlboss, the Netflix show based on Sophia Amoruso’s rag-to-riches story, we get one more drop in the Nasty Gal Mythology bucket.But not so fast. At the start of each episode flashes the intriguing disclaimer, “What follows is a loose retelling of true events.” But how are we to interpret the word "lo...

According To Girlboss, This Is How Nasty Gal Got Its Name

Netflix’s new series Girlboss is, at its heart, an origin story for infamous self-described girlboss Sophia Amoruso and the company she founded and eventually left, Nasty Gal. And no origin story is complete without revealing how its heroine, or in this case, antiheroine, settled on the name that would make her famous. Girlboss attempts to reveal the story behind Nasty Gal’s moniker in the episode "Thank You, San Francisco."The season 1 installment is centered around TV Sophia’s first official ...

Nasty Gals, Dumpster Dives, & The True Story Behind Girlboss

When Sophia Amoruso was a dumpster-diving 22-year-old in Portland, the very last thing she probably expected was that, in less than 10 years, she’d become a millionaire CEO. Or that, in the year 2017, Netflix would be rolling out an original show about her life called Girlboss. And yet, both of those things happened.Before binging Netflix’s Girlboss, set to drop on April 21, it’s wise to acquaint yourself with Amoruso’s legacy — both its triumphs and its controversies. While the fictional acco...

A Fan’s Notes: Notable Albums Of 2016

You don’t need me to tell you that 2016 was a very bad year for musicians. The list of great artists that we lost this year is staggering. The thing is, it’s been a pretty good year for music itself, with two of the departed artists releasing brilliant closing statements. There’s more hip-hop on my list this year than ever before. I’m not going to make any big pronouncements about what that means, but there is no doubt that guitar rock is taking a backseat these days. Still, as long as there are...

We Are Living For These 30 Photos From Hollywood's Golden Age

As a kid and into my teen years, I had a movie-watching ritual with my grandmother. On weekdays, she looked after me in the early evenings and we would make tea and then turn on Turner Classic Movies — the channel that, at the time, showed all the movies she was starry-eyed about at my age.That's how I wound up with a mid-'90s crush on Clark Gable and how I decided that I wanted to learn to move like Ginger Rogers. (Spoiler: She is the best, so that was impossible. But it did inspire me to beco...
