‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ Gets A Positive Review, The Movie Studio Gets Pissed Off

You see, Sony Pictures has placed an embargo on film reviews for Dragon Tattoo and they are exceedingly pissed off that The New Yorker has decided not to comply with that embargo. Sony claims that The New Yorker has “damaged” the film’s success by publishing their POSITIVE review early … but IMHO, Sony is the one doing the damage by acting out like a spoiled child. More »

Remembering & Revisiting

Yesterday was a pretty amazing, very powerful day for me. Sarah and I, first, paid a visit to The National September 11 Memorial in lower Manhattan and then we met up with friends Halli and Johanna at the Beacon Theater to see Tori Amos perform her first of two concerts here in NYC. The memorial visit was kind of last minute but it was well worth our time. The Tori concert was glorious, as ever. It was a really special day for all of us. More »
