OK, my turn!

Mick's "All-Time Sexiest Men of Pop Music" is just plain laughable.  Keith Moon?  Really?

LaSalle is bad enuf as a film critic, but he should NEVER write about music. Ever.

I note that Mick's movie reviews are now behind the new "sfchronicle.com" paywall. He can hint in his blog (still free) about what he likes or doesn't, but the actual reviews you gotta subscribe for.

Credit where credit is due: Mick's great put-down of After Earth:

"M. Night Shyamalan is branching out, coming up with new ways to make bad movies. His plan must be to exhaust all possibilities, so as to eventually come full circle and make a good one by accident. "

ROTFL!

and as soon as I pay Mick a complement, he writes something idiotic -- today's blog post is a debate on whether M Night Shaymalan or Guy Ritchie is the "worst Filmmaker Ever". Seriously? in a world where Uwe Boll is still making movies? 

Beth Spotswood, OTOH: genuis...

I don't hold Mick responsible for his blog posts.  I'm pretty sure sfgate forces him to do them, and he's gotta eat.  The format isn't really condusive to intelligent observation.

Been a while since I posted in this thread, but this is kinda interesting -- Mick unearths an interview he did 20 years ago that never saw the light of newsprint.  IMHO David Mamet totally schools him here. YMMV.
