FOUND: What makes Amy Ray smile

Back in 2012 I posted about Amy Ray’s performance at The Saint in Asbury Park, NJ and noted that while she was terrific, as ever, she was also characteristically scowly, so much so, in fact, that I posted a challenge, offering $50 to anyone who could get photo or video of Amy Ray smiling and/or giggling.

Thoughts on Alison Bechdel’s new book

Alison Bechdel got some crappy reviews for her new book, Are You My Mother? The New York Times was particularly impatient. Slate was more forgiving.
