El Matador State Beach is up past Zuma. I don’t consider myself a particularly beachy person, but this particular stretch of sand and rocks is special to me. Things that make a beach special: caves, starfish, a paucity of yuppies with umbrellas and rules, and the occasional group of gang members playing a lovely game of Frisbee. You can touch them. Personal pan urchin. Venture...

Last night I went to Gelson’s; nothing extraordinary about that. It was about ten and I was in the market for some Cokes and guacamole, so I parked my car in the almost-deserted lot and made my way to the door. One of the canvassers who are always lingering around the entrance was talking to a Gelson’s employee; I heard him say “…and then she threw eggs at me! Eggs! I...

(Editor’s Note: As Synecdoche, New York is arguably Charlie Kaufman’s most divisive film, we have decided to present you with two different takes on it - a Synecdoche Showdown, if you will. Tess Lynch makes her case against the film today, and Sam Donsky will present an opposing viewpoint… I wrote a piece on Synecdoche over at Bright Wall Dark Room.

I find nostalgia for the 1940’s to be sort of confusing: things were pretty stressful back then, for women and black people, for Jews. People ate canned chili. Molly was our American Girl. The idea at Johnny Rockets is that everybody has to be nice. The ketchup has to be...

My parents have bees. They noticed swarms around the wood pile, wood my dad has been splitting for 20 years, and thought wasps. My family hates wasps: I remember being in the pool while my dad fiddled with the heater, and seeing him sprint up the stairs, around the flagstones, screaming, “Run!” Like the black smoke of Lost, the cloud of wasps appeared from the recessed pool heater...

Things That Make Me Feel Rich
