Most websites are niche sites. This one ranges a bit. Itís mostly movies, and mostly movie reviews, but I also write about baseball and politics and literature and hiking. I write about myself from time to time.

I grew up in Minneapolis and live in Seattle, so Iím a fan of the Minnesota Twins and Seattle Mariners. Not a fan of the New York Yankees. Not a bit.

My top recent movies are down there along the left-hand side. My writers are Norman Mailer, E.L. Doctorow, Milan Kundera, Ernest Hemingway, Leo Tolstoy. I back Barack Obama. I bike to work. I studied French for a while but my Mandarin Chinese, learned more than two decades ago in Taipei, Taiwan, is still better. Cíest dommage.

Here are a few favorite articles and posts:

On the site, youíll also find my freelance work with MSNBC, MSN, Slate, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Seattle Times, The Christian Science Monitor, The Believer, and others.

Feel free to range.


P.S. Yankees suck.
