This was last night, but thanks to everyone (all ten of you know who you are!) who came out and caught Lorelai’s — aka The Gilmore Boys — first show ever at Arlene’s. It was super gnarly and very radical.
Well, 30 years ago today Ghostbusters, one of the greatest cinematic achievements in the history of mankind, was released to the masses and I had the opportunity to write about what made it such a huge hit for Complex Magazine. While doing “research” for this I discovered that there is an entire Tumblr devoted solely to Rick Moranis gifs — the aptly titled rickmoranisgifs.tumblr.com. Also, Janine Melnitz will forever be wifey material.

Dudes: I wrote about the New York Liberty’s return to Madison Square Garden after three seasons of exile in Newark, and, you know, if people will actually show up for games now that they’re back. Got to speak to Bill Laimbeer and some Liberty players which was cool. If you’re in New York grab a copy of the physically tangible, real life Village Voice at most (some) street corners in the city and select parts of Brooklyn cause this bad boy is in print!
This week in “writing can be really cool sometimes” I was able to journalize(?) about Lauryn Hill, basketball, and Charles Bukowski — the only three things I really like in this world. #BLESSED
Check out my article on why Buk would hate Californication’s Hank Moody over at Complex Magazine. Also, how rad is that Star Wars shirt he’s wearing above?
