Heart’s Nancy Wilson recalls advising on ‘Almost Famous’ ‘golden god’ acid trip

Cameron Crowe already had nearly everything he needed when he set out to make his 2000 film “Almost Famous.” The movie about a 15-year-old journalist on the road for Rolling Stone magazine in the ’70s was based on the writer-director’s own life, after all. And what he didn’t have — the rock ‘n’ roll sound of the movie’s rock band Stillwater — he knew where to get. Who better than his then-wife Nancy Wilson, the guitarist and singer in the hard-rocking band Heart, which rose to real-life fame aro...

Matt Taibbi is annoyed by the repetitiveness and thinness of Robin DiAngelo's new book "Nice Racism."

I'm reading "Our Endless Dinner With Robin DiAngelo/Suburban America's self-proclaimed racial oracle returns with a monumentally oblivious sequel to 'White Fragility.'" Fortunately, Matt Taibbi  keeps his book review super-short and even so, he's risking committing the same writerly sin as DiAngelo — saying the same thing over and over. And it would be especially bad to say over and over that some other writer keeps saying the same thing over and over. DiAngelo's main point is something I myself...

‘Zola’ Director Janicza Bravo on Processing Female Trauma Through Fantasy [Interview]

Zola is a comedy. No, it’s a fantasy. No, it’s strange, dreamlike thriller meets ode to scumbag Florida. But to Zola director Janicza Bravo, the most important thing is that her new A24 dark comedy is a portrait of female trauma. Which might sound like a weird thing to say about a movie based on a Twitter thread about two strippers who take a wild trip down to Florida that ends in murder, mayhem, and a few jail convictions. “It does feel like it’s drenched in fantasy, because the original re...

Hear Demos & Outtakes of Joni Mitchell’s Blue on the 50th Anniversary of the Classic Album

When Joni Mitchell released Blue in 1971, she revealed herself to the world as a poet with a hard-boiled interior life. The album, writes Rolling Stone, challenged the image many had of her as an innocent flower child. “The West Coast feminine ideal” was a role “Mitchell hadn’t asked for and did not want.” Of her writing of the album, she said in a 2013 interview, “They better find out who they’re worshipping. Let’s see if they can take it. Let’s get real.” Get real she did, shocking the...

Hear an Excerpt from the Newly-Released, First Unabridged Audiobook of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake

Need one go so far in digging out strata of meaning? Only if one wishes to; Finnegans Wake is a puzzle, just as a dream is a puzzle, but the puzzle element is less important than the thrust of the narrative and the shadowy majesty of the characters… and when our eyes grow bewildered with strange roots and incredible compounds, why, then we can switch on our ears. It is astonishing how much of the meaning is conveyed through music: the art of dim-sighted Joyce is, like that of Milton, mai...
