Arts nerd. Journalist. #PCHH veteran. @NLGJA lifer. Not the footballer, the Project H singer or the minister. (Though I'm sure they're awesome.)

Through a Google Glass Darkly: “Black Mirror” on Netflix — For all the digital gimmickry and drool-worthy gadgetry deployed in the British TV anthology " Black Mirror," it's an image as old and organic as storytelling itself that lingers for me after a quick binge-watch: A solitary artist pushes back from her easel, stands and stretches and walks to the window, to find there a moth beating its powdery wings against the panes.

Naif on the Town: Candide, Reviewed — Candide hurls its characters from a storybook castle into a garden hedged 'round by a new-earned knowledge of good and evil, and in the process it cracks open their heads and their hearts. Ours, too. At least in Mary Zimmerman's thoughtful, emotional production-are there two words that chime together better when the subject is theater?-this is [...]

Dolly Parton: Songs We Love — Even if you don't care too much for country music, you've got to love Dolly Parton. That hair? That makeup? That roller coaster, with what the Dollywood Web site delicately refers to as "butterfly back-to-back loops"? What's not to like? Here, Parton-friendly NPR staffers offer their thoughts on some of its highlights.

And What Could It All Mean? : NPR — Strange and stylish and surpassingly dark, Denis Villeneuve's Enemy - especiallypaired with the same director's recent cop thriller Prisoners - makes a strong case for star Jake Gyllenhaal as maybe our most enigmatic young leading man.

Thrills, Chills And High Subatomic Drama : NPR — All you really need to know about Particle Fever is that it includes footage of physicists rapping. About physics. Wearing giant Einstein masks. It's that blend of earnestness and abandon that informs Mark Levinson's utterly absorbing documentary, a chronicle of the launch of the Large Hadron Collider and the search for the fabled Higgs boson, a subatomic particle long theorized but never located.

'Kids For Cash,' Or Perhaps Not — (Recommended) There's a moment, toward the end of the documentary that centers on him, when Judge Mark A. Chiavarella breaks down, his voice cracking as he mourns the likelihood that his grandchildren won't have him in their lives. It's a human moment - and a hugely, grimly ironic one.

'Five Dances' : Monkey See : NPR — Five Dances might be the least talky movie I've seen in months - but it's plenty expressive. What it says, it says silently, or at least nonverbally, in the music-and-movement language of Jonah Bokaer's haunting choreography, which speaks of solitary strivings and the brief, passionate connections that punctuate them.

When A 'Total Eclipse' Leads To Some Serious Exposure — So this here "Total Eclipse of the Heart" video has blown the heck up, tallying a million-plus YouTube plays since Scandal showrunner Shonda Rhimes tweeted a link to it. It's made the rounds of LaughingSquid and Gawker and the like, and if you haven't watched it, do yourself a favor and get that done, because you'll thank me.

Coffee Break: The Get Your 'Mary Poppins' Groove On Edition — Having seen Cate Blanchett's electric Blanche DuBois, and had a public pretend-squabble with our own Bob Mondello about it, I felt like I was all up in Charles McNulty's head when I read his take on Blue Jasmine. [ The Los Angeles Times] * Long names. Languid looks.

Coffee Break: People Arguing And Counting And Singing And Getting Gassed Edition — If you're anywhere near Winston-Salem, please note that Tonya Pinkins, whose chops are so considerable that I don't entirely know where to start with her amazingness, so just Google her, is in cabaret thereabouts, as part of the biennial National Black Theatre Festival. This is a thing that makes me want to go to North Carolina.
