  • I PULLED UP TO THE CURB OUTSIDE A NONDESCRIPT OFFICE building around 1:15 a.m., happy to have found parking within a quarter-mile of Paisley Park. Just in front of me a couple of young men slithered out of a rusty station wagon, one of them clutching a bottle of bottom-shelf whiskey. "Hey, hold up, we'll walk with you!" called one of the flannel-bedecked dudes as I tried to hustle past. I'd hoped I could get by with just a friendly nod, but no such luck. We were all in this lonely expanse of Cha…

  • An everyday life in thrall to the spectacle […] should be understood as the systematic organization of a breakdown in the faculty of encounter, and the replacement of that faculty by a social hallucination: a false consciousness of encounter, or an “illusion of encounter.”—Guy Debord, Society of the Spectacle, 1967 In the early months of 2004, I travelled to New Hampshire as an intern for a documentary production at the Democratic Primary there.
