I've been so unspeakably busy lately, for reasons I will get to once they stop happening in a month or so, that it seems like I haven't updated in forever. But there's always time for whoring!

- I finished up my coverage of the SxSW film festival in Austin.

- I reviewed more episodes of Kings, the fascinating but doomed NBC drama. I also stood in for zulkey with a couple of reviews of American Idol.

- I offered up some comic book reviews with my AVC betters, and contributed to inventories about concept albums and posthumous projects.

- I interviewed the divine Ms. Isabella Rossellini.

- I instituted a new column in which I contemplate the cultural detritus I have accumulated over a lifetime, starting with a huge box of Destroyer novels.

- I wrote a beginner's guide to the E Street Band.

- I contemplated Frank Black's lyrical obsessions.

- I enumerated my all-time favorite comic performances.

- I got drunk and discussed hookerbots, among other things.

- I interviewed one of San Antonio's two rappers.

And, in the world of things that aren't posted online, I reviewed a couple of restaurants, took a road trip to Waco to revisit the Branch Davidian massacre, wrote about the Canadian produce trade, covered the California water shortage, and asked truckers what they look for in a client. But you wouldn't have read that stuff anyway.

Cheers! I truly hope you're all well, and hope to be back in the posting habit come May.
