The Village Voice is Dead

How ironic that The Village Voice fired jazz reviewer and social critic Nat Hentoff the very same week The New Yorker published an article on the illustrious history of the groundbreaking magazine.

Hentoff, who had written for the publication since 1958 (and whose liner notes I've enjoyed on countless album back covers) deserves much better than this.

Hentoff fired article:

Clint Eastwood - A Tough Cookie

Clint Eastwood is one of my heroes. Here's a man who's directed six interesting, ambitious feature films over the past six years, with another one in production. Several of them have been nominated for, or have won, Academy awards.

The kicker is this: Clint Eastwood is nearly eighty years old (he was born in 1930). At an age when many of his peers have given up on life, or are wasting their time until their last day on Earth, Eastwood is plowing on ahead, creating vital art.

Along with other fine film directors in their sixties and seventies (David Lynch, Woody Allen), Eastwood is refusing to view himself as irrelevant or incapable of speaking of current and future generations. To this, I say: what an example, and I hope I'm still sane and creating at that age!
