Rant #10: GaGa-ya-ya-smash-smash

Dawg, Dawg, awg awg aw-awg, Duckface, Duckface fa-ace, Ga Ga ooh la la…WANT YOUR BAD IDOL! Come one, come all, to this freak-show edition of Duckface and the Dawg.  Does anyone else find it worrisome that GaGa, a complete lunatic (though arguably a talented and/or brilliant one), is the only person making any sense on this clusterfuck of a [...]

Rant #4: The Barber Did What?

Random Reflections from the Week

It’s been a busy week here at Midtown Review.  After recovering from our Oscar party hi-jinx, I released the latest podcast with New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry and then interviewed authors Brad Taylor and Adriana Trigiani for some upcoming episodes. (That’s a lot of reading, my friends!)  We also had a second discussion of THE SECRETS OF [...]
