1. I have been made a Senior Writer of The A.V. Club, which has nothing to do with my age, at least I hope not. In any case, it is an honor and privilege, even if it is the setup for a bad Golden Girls joke or something.
2. My ambitious, epic, sprawling, Brobdingnagian new monthly column about '90s punk rock, Fear Of A Punk Decade, debuted today. As befits such an ambitious, epic, sprawling, Brobdingnagian new monthly column about '90s punk rock, it's pretty rad. Really. Just ask me.
3. As of today I have also assumed co-authorship of The A.V. Club's monthly, big-fancy-award-nominated, comic-book review column, Comics Panel. I kick it off by reviewing some comic books. It seemed only apt.
