Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge: Twelve Reasons to Die II

Much too short, but as solid as you'd expect given the name of the rapper, the name of the producer, and the names of the features.

Music

Raekwon: Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2

Musically and lyrically, Raekwon has topped himself, removing the stigma of Immobilarity and The Lex Diamonds Story to drop what may be the hip-hop record of the year.

Television

The Black List: Vol. 2

The sheer beauty of the images creates its own sort of narrative, a visual demonstration of The Black List's original impetus to recover the typically "negative" denomination of the "black list" and reframe it as positive and inspiring.

Music

Reviews

Film

Coffee and Cigarettes (2004)

On its own terms, Coffee and Cigarettes is an effective addiction movie, self-indulgent but also familiar and low-key.

Scary Movie 3 (2003)

Just when you thought the Scary Movie franchise had run out of ideas, here it comes again -- looking like it's run out of ideas.
