By Tania RunyanJanuary 12, 2017

An introduction: Decades ago, in the faraway land of Orange County, California, two young women made contact. Jen and I shared a number of classes but traveled in different social circles. I was scary nerdy awkward—E.T. and Laura Ingalls’ lovechild, and she was scary sexy cool—black eyeliner, skateboards, and bands I couldn’t pronounce. Only in…

A Space Program

By Alissa WilkinsonMarch 21, 2016

The tenth item on a list entitled “How to Watch This Film,” which accompanies Tom Sachs’ A Space Program, says that the film is “a love letter to the analog era.” That obsession with all things handmade and non-digital was obvious as I watched the film—even though I was sitting on my couch, streaming a digital screener on…

A Lottery for Barbarians

By A.G. HarmonSeptember 10, 2015

Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos and the Megachurch

By Tony WoodliefApril 8, 2015

My suspicion grows apace with the slickness of a presentation. This is one reason I squirm in a megachurch.
