Meat Loaf obituary

Bat Out of Hell singer known for his powerful maelstrom of sound and spectacular live showsIf all he had ever done was record the album Bat Out of Hell, Meat Loaf, who has died aged 74, would still be guaranteed his own plinth in the museum of rock’n’roll. Released in Britain in early 1978, the album might have been conceived as the antidote to punk rock, which had been wreaking havoc on the music industry. The unlikely-looking figure of Meat Loaf stood at the centre of a bombastic maelstrom of ...

For some, ‘day of service’ means sweeping up bike lanes

Considering its status as an undeniable box office flop (making only about $304 thousand against its $10 million budget), it's odd that 1995's "Empire Records" continues to maintain such a strong chokehold on popular culture. Though the prospect of working in a record store has been all but obliterated by the new millennium, the fantasy thrives on — particularly among starry-eyed young adults who yearn to be employed alongside their buddies as arbiters of taste for a (minimum wage) living. Hell,...

The Origins of the Word “Gaslighting”: Scenes from the 1944 Film Gaslight

You’re not going out of your mind. You’re slowly and systematically being driven out of your mind. — Joseph Cotton to Ingrid Bergman in the 1944 film Gaslight. Remember when the word “gaslighting” elicited knowing nods from black and white film buffs… and blank stares from pretty much everyone else? Then along came 2016, and gaslighting entered the lexicon in a big way. Merriam-Webster defines it as the “psychological manipulation of a person usually over an extended period of time that ...

"The best blogs are idiosyncratic, unmediated expressions of an individual sensibility, a notion which tends to make old-media executives squirm, so much so that many print-media publications refuse to let their employees blog."

Wrote Terry Teachout in 2006, quoted by me at the time, in "The very idea of an institutional blog is a contradiction in terms." I'm reading my old posts about Terry Teachout, because he has died. Read "Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal Drama Critic, Dies at Age 65/Missouri-born author and musician wrote biographies of Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and H.L. Mencken" (WSJ). I had the pleasure of spending an evening with Terry Teachout when he came to Madison to see the play "Rembrandt's G...
