Elsewhere In The Tomatoverse: Mitch Gaylord Weeps
Well, tries to.
Writing: My Jock Cinema column is back at Sports On Earth.com with a look at the so-bad-it's-good American Anthem.
Highlights from Previously.TV last week included a holiday album from Dylan McKay's father's ginormous sweatpants; Christopher Palu's epic staredown of Nina Garcia on Project Runway All-Stars; a review of Homeland's third season; and an expert analysis of TV's "top" gentleman weepers by the Couch Baron. (Warning: Contains Crying Dawson.)
Reading: Rachel Aviv's "Where Is Your Mother" from the 12/2 New Yorker. This brisk, flat prose is the best way to approach the subject matter, and I got sucked in so hard, I forgot I was in a clinic waiting room.
Celebrating: Shut Up, Foodies is back (it probably has been for a while; sorry if I missed it, friends) and its weary disgust with The Bacon Thing is great.
Sick of people saying "begs the question" when they mean "raises the question"? There's an URL for that. (And a t-shirt!)
TN Prom: You in? Get in.
Coming Soon: Another Tomato Nation Read-Along, and the grand opening of the Poppy-Field Movie Cineplex, both in the new year; sooner than that, your "AAAAAAGHGHGHGH" holidays open thread (starring the Christmas ham that ate Pittsburgh — and Albany, and most of the Rhinebeck area, and a couple of neighborhoods in the Bronx, and is now seething in my freezer, and do I even eat meat? No, I do not).
