I've always been a fan of Andy Griffith. He's a truly great actor who created one of the best TV comedies in history, right after turning in a complicated, brilliant, occasionally over-the-top and often terrifying performance in A Face In The Crowd, which is suddenly a movie that everyone is talking about. But it's really cool of him to have done this.

Problem: I have lots of opinions on politics and culture that I need to vent. If I do not do this I will wind up muttering to myself, and that's only like one or two steps away from being a hobo. Solution: I write two blogs. A political blog that has some evident sympathies (pro-Obama, mostly liberal though I dissent on some issues, like guns and trade) and a culture blog that does, well, cultural essays in a more long-form manner. My particular thing is taking overrated things (movies, mostly, but other things too) down a peg and putting underrated things up a peg. I'm sort of the court of last resort, and I tend to focus on more obscure cultural phenomena.
