Read this: Vincent Gallo, Conan O'Brien, Don Rockwell, and other men
Weird new shows from two aging hipster favorites. First, Vincent Gallo, celebrity dilettante, director of indie-porno "The Brown Bunny," and now bandleader with RRIICCEE, which critic Aaron Leitko says just sounds like "free-form, art-school elevator music with a mild debt to composer Ennio Morricone." The weird part is that you can only buy his CD via his Web site, for $150. Then there's Conan O'Brien's new TBS show, full of limp jokes about his own exile from network TV. "Watching 'Conan,'' writes Hank Stuever, "is as much about not watching something or someone else... [for] post-ironic viewers, for whom television is just an endless Mobius strip of jokes about being on television."
On the brighter side, there's a profile of Don Rockwell, the mystery man behind local foodie online community DonRockwell.com, who "became interested in food because of a personal tragedy and almost by accident."
