I've been sleeping and then not sleeping. I am working on a bigger update, but in the meantime there are some shows I want to talk about. If you haven't signed up for my hopefully not-too-annoying e-mail list, you can do that on the right hand side here. I will be right back with real news, updates.

Mapplethorpe is a kind of service, a product or device. A disposable personality, a soulless soul-singer, a TV character set to self-destruct, a eulogy to stay alive, a pop star designed for rancor. A lover who cannot bear the weight of the spotlight and whose incineration glimmers on command.
