There are few things I enjoy more in relationships than giving someone something that I picked out just for them, that I know (or suspect or hope) they’ll love, that makes their lives a little bit brighter. I take gift-giving very seriously — probably too seriously? OR NOT SERIOUSLY ENOUGH.

I stood in the kitchen, watching the repairman duck his head into our broken dishwasher. How many times had it fallen apart now? Two? Three? Whatever the number, I was becoming a proficient hand washer of dirty dishes.
The repairman eased back out of the washer’s cavern and pointed, his thick mu...Read more of this blog post »

If, like me, you grew up with a well-thumbed copy of Michael Wheldon’s superb THE PSYCHOTRONIC ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FILM, then you’ll have felt something of a gap in your life because that book was published in 1983.
