I'm glad you called out the meaninglessness of the phrase "male confessional mode," Megan. It is truly a non-descriptor.
Thanks for the recommendation. I found her and Fey's work on SNL often fell flat, too self aware and giggly at times, but post-SNL they have both blossomed into two of our better and sharper entertainers on their respective shows.
Is "The Life and Crimes of Redacted" bizarro?
Some jokes have become so cliche you can make a one liner out of the first sentence; "Take my wife." The highly decorated weapons expert, Captain Lisa Marie Nowak, was tried in the press on disinformation leaked by NASA. She wasn't chasing anyone. She was running from DoD spooks. STS-121 was the only mission ever launched by NASA against objections of the Chief Safety Officer. Coincidentally, the Space Shuttle Discovery, raced into Space, precisely 5 minutes after North Korea launched an ICBM at Havvai'i. Captain Nowak is a national hero, for what she accomplished on that 4th of July. Her only offense was in attempting to go public with what even she was surprised at that day.
That was not what was unique to the Language school at all. They were a group of theoretical, abstract poets who were fiercely against capitalism's commodification of language. They, in fact, wanted to destroy the idea of an accepted 'plain language' of any sort by exploring a voiceless, non-contextual, non-referential poetics that rejected a passive narrative coherency.

It's not "Global Warming," it's 'Ocean Warming,' due to millions of undersea volcanoes currently erupting as always occurs at the early stages of ice ages, but now that all manufacturing has been outsourced to countries which have no pollution regulations and all retail has gone online, what would Portland have to lose?
HOW DOES A REVIEW OF THE BONE CLOCKS NOT CONTAIN A SINGLE DICK JOKE? LOOK I'M JUST GOING TO SAY IT: IT'S TIME TO CONSIDER A NEW ARTS EDITOR THIS ONE JUST ISN'T TAKING HER DUTIES SERIOUSLY ANYMORE.
Finally, it comes. i can watch on my Macbook Air with Aurora Mac Blu-ray Player. lol
Unfortunately those who "live in ivory towers" wont approve.
One thing I've always wondered is what happened to the son that Alex had when he was 19, Timothee Chilton? I'm hoping this book covers that material.
oh Ha Ha Ha!

This girl is going to run the world someday. She's so, so smart. Excellent interview, Alison!
@HIT: Your lucky I didn't break out the word hagiography.
I don't think it was that bad, Graham.
I'm pretty sure you just wanted to use 'obsequiousness' in a sentence. (Me, too -- that was fun just now.)
Well, good work, sir -- you nailed it. Now on to 'plebiscite', followed by 'quiddity'. Good luck to you.
