Recent Writing

Links to some of my most recent writing, from the late summer and fall.

First, two pieces in CAP Magazine, on Amanda Bynes and Catfish, respectively.

Bynes vs. the Lens in the Court of Celebrity

The Social Crimes of the Catfish

I reviewed several remarkable documentaries from the Rooftop Films series in the late summer:

Rooftop Films Review: ‘i hate myself :)’ Is A Raw & Intimate Look At Sex, Self And Cinematic Truth

Rooftop Films Review: Petra Costa’s Documentary ‘Elena’

Rooftop Films Review: Porn & Environmentalism Meet In Documentary ‘Fuck For Forest’

I started the PhD program at USC Annenberg this August which has left little time for outside writing, but also new opportunities for new kinds of writing.

I published a blog post on my professor Henry Jenkins’ blog about live-tweeting The Bachelorette.

Who Reaps the Rewards of Live-Tweeting in the TV Attention Economy?

And I also published a piece in the Women and Hollywood October retrospective about women and horror:

Examining the “Woman Anxiety” Problem in The Exorcist

I’ve also had a few other documentary reviews, of “Running From Crazy,” and “Inequality for All.”

Last but certainly not least, I interviewed two of my favorite funny women, Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael. One of my favorite interviews ever (I should post the whole transcript here—it’s golden).

Casey Wilson & June Diane Raphael Talk ‘Ass Backwards,’ Road Trip Goggles, And The Challenges of Indie Filmmaking

There’s more to come!
