Op-Ed Columns from The New Puritan ReView
NYC / Tampa FL / Minneapolis, MN
and maybe a few points in between
1984 – 2002
The whole idea of The New Puritan ReView was (more or less) to convey social commentary through a dissection of cultural artifacts, although I quickly found that the language of criticism had to be tailored for the particular brand of media being critiqued. An album review doesn’t “work” in the same manner as a film or book review, and so forth – The Medium Is The Massage, and all that. So, I had to come up with some snappy titles for individual sections, and when you consider that the name of the magazine itself was loosely cribbed from a song by The Fall, it made sense to do it again for the Op-Ed columns that would invariably rear their pointed little heads.
