Two, possibly contradictory, things I believe: 1. "Separating the art from the artist" is not really a thing 2. Experiencing someone's art--even knowing their work very well--does not mean I know what they're really like as a person

I hope I wasn't putting words in your mouth! In any case, I liked the piece.

Have not seen the movie, but do endorse the idea of allowing a space for artists somewhere between MY HERO and TRAITOR TO THE CAUSE

Yes! Not just its general community politics, but even the maligned first season is very much of that Great Recession era

Ive said this before, but Glee. Not that it’s the equal of those other shows or as significant aesthetically, but it captures something about the sensibility of that time period.

Agreed, I hardly watch him for those. It's a skill to be able to do an interview when you're not super-interested in the subject & I have a lot of respect for people who can pull it off

I don't know, I may have hit my limit of James Comey interviews, which is like 50 or something

And yes, I realize I just basically said, "Well, OF COURSE the late-night comedian's interview is going to be more thoughtful than the network news department's," but here we are

The Colbert interview with Comey was so much better than ABC's. Maybe that's partly the benefit of going after all the initial headlines have come out. But it's also the diff b/w an interview that goes after ideas vs one going for bombshells.

Discovered I had the finale of The Chi waiting on Tivo since vacation. Show's still uneven, but Papa may be the best-written new character so far this year.

Seriously, if you can't spare 50 seconds to watch this before each episode, reconsider your life

Here's my fuller critique from season 1, that Westworld was more focused on being a cool puzzle than a good story. Season 2 works on the problem but it's not there yet.

I, for one, welcome Westworld's new robot overlords. The humans, however, still need a major reboot.
