Coffee’s for Closers

glengarry

I talked to Jeremy Skidmore about his Keegan Theatre revial of David Mamet’s classic of manly desperation, Glengarry Glen Ross. Haven’t seen the production yet, but Celia Wren seemed to like it.

A couple days after I filed this, the new Fall Out Boy album came to me for review in what it turns out will be my final installment of Media Mix (as that part of the paper is going away come the new year), complete with a tune called “Coffee’s for Closers.” No obvious connection to the play, but perhaps I haven’t listened closely enough to Fall Out Boy. There is always that risk.

(Yes, I am well aware that All My Sons is by Arthur Miller and not David Mamet.)

Media Mix XXII: Akon is All Wet Edition

Understand me, Panic at the Disco: Liking you better than Akon is not the same thing as liking you liking you. Okay?
