Chris Chafin is a New York-based journalist whose writing has appeared in Rolling Stone, GQ, and New York Magazine's Vulture.
This week, it's two (mostly fictional) looks at (totally real) writers as they work on their (also totally real) books: Shirley (2020, Josephine Decker) and American Splendor (2003, Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini). 
This week, it's two movies about race, America, violence and our own minds -- both from visionary director Spike Lee. They're the new Netflix original Da 5 Bloods (2020) and the stone-cold classic Do The Right Thing (1989).
This week, it's two extremely different looks at life in the biosphere: the documentary Spaceship Earth (2020) and the Pauly Shore vehicle Bio-Dome (1996). Title music is "Life Story" by Kevin Hairs, who has a GREAT NEW EP! More info here: https://kevinhairs.bandcamp.com/releases
This week it's two bizarre horror comedies: Deerskin (2020) and Butt Boy (2019). Even better, they're both on independent streaming services, where renting them puts money towards your local arthouse theater. Deerskin is through Virtual Cinemas, and Butt Boy is on the new Alamo Drafthouse streamer, Alamo On Demand. Title music is "Life Story" by Kevin Hairs, who has a GREAT NEW EP!
