In between our Big Reads, Joel and I have also decided to do the occasional Small Read, and our first Small Read is Peter Moskos' In Defense of Flogging, which is exactly what it says on the tin. Go here if you'd like to listen to it, and it's also available on iTunes and Google Podcasts … Continue reading New Podcast Episode: The Small Read Cast
You didn't think I'd forgotten about this project, did you? No, the Silliest Take of the Week Project may hibernate from time to time, like a great bear, but it always returns.
What follows are Several Opinions about the Oscars, All of Which Are My Opinion.
In preparation for the Oscars, Erin and I watched Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri last night, and, uh, well.

This one's on time! First, today, we have three full-length Silly Takes, all published on August 25th, when the stars apparently aligned and Writers of Takes from across the political spectrum felt a dark compulsion to opine wildly about pop culture.

It's several days late, but screw it: it's time for THE SILLIEST TAKE OF (LAST) WEEK, because it's Friday night, and I know how to party. Many of these Silly Takes relate to the aftermath of the Charlottesville rally, because the Writers of Takes like nothing more than turning a horrible tragedy in grist for the #content mills.
