August 30-September 4, 2010

This week, in “Dysphonia,” Travis Wright gives you a head start on the 25 best albums of the year in “In case you’ve been sleeping” and Mike Vincent shows “AlternaDad” Neal Pollack how it’s done in “Never Mind the Hack”

In “The Cinepiles,” everyone is looking over their shoulder. Kevin Mattison peers in on Michael Haneke’s 2005 film Caché in “It’s the unanswered questions that haunt us” and Adam Simmons reveals the secrets of the 1970s paranoid film in “Panic in the 70s”

In “In the Queue,” Tim Carmody names the top five TV comedies of the past decade, and promises to watch them all on Netflix (as if he hasn’t already.) Read “Laughing again, streaming this time”

In “Diary of a Casual Gamer,” Gavin Craig comes to terms with his Mafia Wars addiction, and promises to never ask you to send him an energy pack again. Read “Click, click, click”

In “Rounding Third,” Angela Vasquez-Giroux explains why Miguel Cabrera should be the 2010 American League MVP. (Hint, it has something to do with performing even when your team is down. Also William Butler Yeats.) Read “Miggy and the Minors”

And in “The F Word,” Jill Kologowski introduces herself: a food writer in a “new and fragile relationship with vegetables” who never says no to ice cream sometimes. Read “Getting started, or, Taking it slow with vegetables”
