Hi — my name’s Jeremy Gordon, and I used to work at The Outline (RIP), Pitchfork, and SPIN. My newsletter, Air Gordon pt. 2, is named for my old Tumblr, and, obviously, the greatest basketball player of all-time.
I’m often interested in the messy ways that culture (meaning cultural items like music/movies/TV/video games/etc. but also the audiences, ideologies, market forces, etc. underpinning those items) collides with itself. That topic is occasionally too knotty or byzantine to untangle in a standard review or profile, so I’m using my newsletter to dig into that without the constricts of needing an “angle,” now that COVID-19 has dynamited what was already an ailing business model within my industry. Basically, I’m just trying to have a good time.
