Sorry for the sudden dearth of postage -- you'd think being completely immobilized for two weeks from a gout attack in the left heel would prompt an outpouring of bloggity blah-blah but this has not been the case. I've been writing a bit, but mostly dealing with my abrupt discharge as lead art critic for the LA Weekly. I can't say I was too surprised -- between the general collapse of print media, the specific culture-wide assault on arts journalism, and the Village Voice Media's vendetta against pinko egghead hippies among its rank and file, I was surprised I lasted this long. Still, it could have been handled a little more professionally. If you haven't got the skinny, check out Jori Finkel's mop-up at the LA Times culturemonster blog. And I'll try and get back in the swing over the holidays.
