by David Rothman
25 May 2017 at 9:47pm
I was grumpily reading a biography of Nora Ephron, the late writer-director. She Made Me Laugh was good. The viewon my Pixel XL phone was not.

by Chris Meadows
10 May 2017 at 1:14pm
Updated, see below. Here’s a story I first noticed a couple ofdays ago when Nate Hoffelder of The Digital Reader covered it.

by Chris Meadows
5 May 2017 at 8:41am
