Remind you of anyone you know? I hope not! Just marvel in these highly evocative words from this American version of today’s psalter: Psalm 5:10

I asked ChatGPT to recommend some of “the most interesting articles written by the journalist Clive Thompson”

Of the nine it listed …

… seven were ones I hadn’t written, and a few didn’t exist at all, by anyone

One was a pastiche

Only one was truly correct

This performance is so unbelievably terrible it’s almost charitable to call it “bullshit”

Just had the great pleasure of viewing ’ The Space Between (2021, dir: Rachel Winter). I could go on about the 90s music business, of which I was a bit player myself, or of using Kelsey Grammer’s booming voice and ivory-tinkling abilities to the full in a highly effective collab with Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, or the fact that the real daughter of a real life 90s and all time hall of fame pop icon wonderfully underplayed a wannabe climbing the greasy A&R pole with a character arc spiralling sharply downwards, in counterpoint to the rock star’s daughter, the eponymous Julia, who finally achieves emancipation from her past, but no. I won’t talk about any of that🤪 I’ll just say that in the age of multi-episode multi-season shows all vying for that elusive next series, this conventional hour and a half movie had characters, dialogue, and ensemble performances good enough to make me shed a tear, then, as the characters finally did, move on.
