Bob Mould @ the Bluebird B+

Bob Mould rocks! Hüsker Dü, Sugar, solo stuff- he played it all... he played it loud.  Good rock show!

About A Boy (Book Review)

Slam - Nick Hornby B+

Slam, Hornby's first YA novel probably doesn't break any new ground; but, like great pop star he always writes an irresistible hook.

On the Road - Movie Review

On the Road (R) 124 minutes C+
The Writing Life

Starring: Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, Amy Adams, Kristen Dunst,  and Viggo Mortensen

Kerouac's On the Road has finally made it to the big screen and it's a hot mess.  Clocking in at over two hours long this film is both annoying and alluring.  Surprisingly, Kristen Stewart is one of the best things about this train wreck which sort of  wins me over at the end.
