Ill Doctrine on TSOYA

July 15, 2008

My appearance (as the opening act for zefrank!) on Jesse Thorn's excellent radio show The Sound of Young America. Man I hate looking at myself. If I had it to do over again I would like to be more funnier and less pseudo-intellectual. Jesse's show is really dope though, I highly recommend going through the archives. Some of my favorite interviews are the ones with Bubs and Bunk from The Wire, Ira Glass, Betty Davis(!), and the founders or Reno 911.

The Wall-E Theory

July 1, 2008


Uncovering the secret code hidden inside the year's best movie.

For real though Wall-E was a great film, and I don't expect this type of movie (or any movie) to comprehensively cover every sociopolitical issue.. but I did find it interesting how it approached environmental issues, in a way that basically left class -and race- off the table.. especially since race and class are so often left off the table when the environment is discussed..
