Academy of the Overplated

On the subject of the next issue of the High Hat, this edition’s special section will be “The Academy of the Underrated” – the critically or publicly ignored or reviled, reassessed by our crack staff of unpaid life-wasters.

Marc Singer’s Most Challenging Roles
Guns, Boom Mics and Empty Warehouses: The World of Albert Pyun
Does Existence Precede Essence, or What?: The Interior Landscapes of Cherry Poptart

There’s a Heart Where My Wang Should Be: The Golden Age of “Love Is”
Nicolae Ceacescu and the Myth of the Dictator
