| Essays

 

  • Was the grunge revolution racist? Meaning was the longing for a return to some notion of guitar-based rock music based on a toppling of pop and hip-hop and music mostly made by black and brown people.

 

 

  • Also something about the writing team behind it. Would love to speak with Kristin Wiig and Annie Momolo about the BRIDESMAIDS screenplay and the difference between writing comedy for cinema v. TV.

 

 

  • What does Jewish Geography mean when we include Jews of color and jews outside the synagogue/youth group/summer camp cartel?
