    Radiohead & side projects, best of

    Personal selections from Spotify attempting to highlight all of the projects from Radiohead’s original lineup: Thom Yorke, Colin & Jonny Greenwood, Philip Selway, and Ed O’Brien.

    My 15 favorite films of 2023, and other thoughts on the moving pictures I’ve seen this year.

  • A Life in Film – my Letterboxd stats

    I was recently inspired by the stats visualizations on Letterboxd.com, a movie review website. The stats page is available for Pro subscribers only, but I’ve enjoyed Letterboxd as a free subscriber since 2013. Now that I’ve paid for a year of Pro, I can actually look at stats for each of the years that I’ve…
