Father’s Day Reminder

This Sunday is Father’s Day–and if you haven’t gotten your dad something yet, might I suggest that he would thoroughly enjoy a copy of VJ, the New York Times bestselling memoir of the early days of MTV I wrote with original VJs Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, and Martha Quinn? Even the right-wing website […]

VJ Giveaway

Nancy Davis Kho, the woman behind the excellent blog Midlife Mixtape, wrote a very cool review of VJ: Having a one-sided conversation with these guys was a major component of my teen years, so reading about what happened on the other side of the television screen feels a bit like reminiscing with a long-lost high […]

No, not information on the whereabouts of Adam Curry, Kevin Seal, and Downtown Julie Brown–that would be VJ II Roundup. This is a collection of some more press coverage of the New York Times bestseller VJ and my fabulous coauthors Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, and Martha Quinn.

No Church of the Poison Mind in the Wild

The VJs did most of the promotional work for VJ–for some mysterious reason, people are more interested in seeing beloved celebrities on TV than their co-writers. (In all seriousness, I was delighted to see the VJs getting the attention they deserved–it’s part of why I did this book.) But I did one interview, for Jay-Z’s […]

I spent most of last week in New York, celebrating the release of VJ with the mighty Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, and Martha Quinn. Thanks to the PowerHouse Arena in Dumbo, Barnes & Noble in Tribeca, and the Apple Store in Soho for hosting us, and to everyone who came out–it was a […]

Hey, Kids! Free Excerpts!

Perhaps you can’t wait twelve days for the publication of VJ, the book I wrote with original MTV personalities Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, and Martha Quinn. Perhaps you are wishing that a tabloid would excerpt some of the juiciest passages, with stories about David Lee Roth, David Bowie, Madonna, and John Cougar. Then […]

My favorite part of doing The Experts was tackling the Hardest Question in the World, which tested the outer limits of Carrollania:

The Experts

I hadn’t been on a game show for a while, so when the good people at The Experts, your new favorite YouTube game show, asked if I would come on and demonstrate my expertise in something nonmusical, I was happy to compete on the basis of my decades-long obsession with Alice in Wonderland. Curious how […]

Single-Disc White Album Roundup

I traded tweets earlier today with a very cool graphic artist, Craig Robinson, author of the excellent and witty baseball infographic collection Flip Flop Fly Ball. The spur: he recently compiled his own single-disc version of the Beatles’ White Album, which reminded me of the time I did my version. We’re not the only ones, […]
