Dr. Tatiana’s eEx Advice to All Creation by Olivia Judson

I'm appalled by the behavior of the young iguanas of today: I keep encountering groups of youths masturbating at me.


Crocodile Soup by Julia Darling

The themes of loss, isolation, and desperation are ripe with possibility, and yet Darling's treatment of these topics often leaves the reader cold.

Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars (1973)

Ziggy falters as a visual experience, a conspicuous failing considering its spectacle-obsessed subject.


Tokyo Revelation (Shin Megami Tensei: Tokyo Mokushiroku) (2002)

But too soon, it's back to more possessions and double-crosses and a baffling scheme.


Red Hawk: Weapon of Death (2002)

It's all just so wonderfully corny.


feardotcom (2002)

Udo Kier stumbles down a dark New York subway stairway, his face sweaty and deeply shadowed, his eyes popping in that Udo Kierian way.

Interpol: Turn on the Bright Lights

Turn on the Bright Lights is the album modern followers of post-punk have been waiting for. It is the album that makes all the hub-bub about the New York City music scene of late seem justified.


The Flaming Lips: Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
