SEK talks Captain America: The Winter Soldier on Graphic Policy podcast

[ 16 ] May 27, 2014 |

I was on the Graphic Policy radio show/podcast last night discussing, among other things, the many excellent points Steve Attewell made about the film’s historical context, as well as many of the sorts of points I make about how film works. You can listen to it below.

New Pop Culture Podcasts with graphicpolicy on BlogTalkRadio

Sad to say, the co-hosts — Elana Levin and Brett Schenker — really steal the show, but I make a few decent points, even if I stole most of them from Steven.

Point being, I’m still such a teacher, i.e. a conduit for other people’s good ideas.

New Internet Film School column: Louie ain’t dreaming, it’s blue

My latest Internet Film School column at the AV Club is open for business!

I will note, however, that the editors deemed some of my very necessary profanity unnecessary, so there are some odd lacunae in the piece. Just insert whatever

He’s at it again, this time proving that if you pretend to be a rich person offering documentary producers $9 million, they will have lunch with you and accept your money.

We truly live in a new and better age of journalism. Now if you’ll excuse me, I hear tell Vox is about to Vox-splain me a little something something…

SEK’s Game of Thrones Recap: “Mockingbird,” in which things are binary, or they aren’t

[ 66 ] May 19, 2014 |

Things were very much black or white in this episode, except when they weren’t.

But mostly they were. I mean:


Also, I apologize for not getting the podcast up already, but it’s been a long weekend at Chez Kaufman. Fortunately — I kid, I kid — we have two weeks until the next episode airs, so we’ll be all caught up before the next one.

I’m amusing myself more than usual today…

…which I know, is uncouth, but usually what amuses me, amuses you, so:

As David Moles mentioned on Twitter about the second link:

Feel free to take it wherever you please, so long as it’s amusing.

This week’s Game of Thrones recap is heavy on the visual rhetoric

[ 104 ] May 12, 2014 |


But only because the episode demanded it be. I don’t want to raise your expectations going forward too high, after all.

We apologize for the delay, but Louisiana weather is what it is, so technical difficulties are inevitable. Enjoy!

Today I’ll be attending a crawfish boil stocked with loaded pressure cookers in Pompey…

[ 53 ] May 10, 2014 |

…and I realized I had an opportunity to present you with an “SEK scenario” before the inevitable inevitably happened.

Keep your eyes peeled on the evening news, friends, I have a feeling it’s going to be an interesting evening.

Coming soon to a national park to you: Big Mountain Satan!

[ 124 ] May 9, 2014 |

So, a Florida man who became a Satanist to antagonize his fellow Floridians is demanding to be allowed to open a city council meeting by hailing Satan.

That’s now allowed, because the Supreme Court said that hailing Satan — or any religious invocation, for that matter — doesn’t necessarily represent a state endorsement of a particular religion.*

The Montana Attorney General just agreed with the spirit of that decision when he claimed that Flathead National Park’s “Big Mountain Jesus” statue isn’t necessarily a religious symbol, which opens the door to establishing a “shrine” to “Big Mountain Satan.”

Would that I were a sculptor — or graphic designer — as obviously talented as the person responsible for “Big Mountain Jesus,” I would be all over creating “Big Mountain Satan.” But, alas, I am not!

*Which is the equivalent of people on Twitter claiming that links aren’t endorsement, which means the Court’s as sophisticated as people on Twitter, about which the-less-thought-about-the-better.

He’s not going to ask me to ask, so I’m just going to have to ask for him…

Jim Henley needs our assistance. As you well know, I have no patience for people with cancer, but though I’ve only admired his work from afar, for Henley I’ll make an exception.

But I’m not yet the goddamned Batman, so I can’t help him out myself.

Maybe you could pitch in until I get this whole “independently wealthy” thing figured out?
