Weird Al: The Book (2012)
4.1 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I'm a huge fan of Weird Al and I love all the coffee table book aspects of this (the pictures, Al's lists, ect.), but Nathan Rabin's writing here is HORRIFIC. Even for a fan send up it's sickeningly mushy. Everything doesn't need a string of positive adjectives. Every album can't...

review 1: I read this book at the same time I was reading a book by Rob Sheffield, another pop culture critic. It was an interesting contrast. I think if I saw Sheffield on the street, I'd invite him for coffee. He seems adorable. If I saw Nathan Rabin, I think I'd cross the street. He...
Big Rewind: A Memoir Brought to You by Pop Culture (2009)

review 1: Using artifacts of pop culture (various records, movies, and songs that have affected the author at different times of his life) as centering mechanisms for each chapter of Nathan Rabin's memoir is an effective tactic. Whether it's the rise of orthodox Jewish reggae artist Matisy...
