It's weird. I'm at a bit of a loss about what to say about David Bowie's death. I've never been a "superfan", but I always had a massive amount of admiration for the man. I guess the best I can do is talk about what he and his art meant to me personally.

The annual, absurdly specific, woefully incomplete wrapup to music this year.   The Good Believe…

There aren't just "band guys" and "everyone else", there are a lot of us who fall into both categories. We're a musical "middle class", and we're under-represented in discussions on the future of the industry.

Inspired, roughly, by my friend Tom Shear's "My Favorite Things" posts over at his excellent…

It's no secret that I'm a longtime depeche Mode fan. I've seen them in concert…

My first attempts, making guanciale out of a hog jowl and a slab of duck prosciutto, were...of mixed success. The prosciutto was decent but too salty and the guanciale got a little too dry during curing. My next attempt, I thought, would be something a little simpler, bresaola. It worked pretty splendidly.

Over the weekend, I built a tandoor. In retrospect, I probably overengineered it.  It’s a…
