'The Deuce' Recap: The Battle of 42nd Street

You don't need to be a perfect show to produce a perfect scene – and tonight episode of The Deuce (titled "What Kind of Bad?") proved it. The problems that keep David Simon and George Pelecanos's behemoth of a period piece from reaching escape velocity are all still there, to be sure. But in one confrontation between two streetwise characters, damn if the thing didn't finally take off.

The set-up for the sequence is doled out through bite-sized, simplistic scenes across the rest of the episode, in typical Deuce fashion.

Dusty's Favorite Rock Music from 2014

What a year in rock music! There, I said it. Too much to take in. Like a rowboat taking in more water than I can bail out. I keep getting new music recommended to me by friends, publicists, old lovers, dudes on subways, songs blasting in hipster boutiques; freakin' new music was everywhere. I got tipped to U.K. acts such as punk rockers Sleaford Mods, poetry rapper Kate Tempest, and folkster Jake Bugg; there was a new pop rock opus by Dan Wilson, and soulful Brooklynite Selena Garcia, and much more. I could barely compile my "best of/favorites of 2014" list knowing that I'll probably discover even more music after I've completed it. But here goes...my ten favorite tracks from 2014, a few essential reissues, and my ten favorite albums, yes, albums, like on real heavy duty vinyl, with two sides and everything.

Making Time: Another Ricky D Mix Tape

Making a good mix tape takes some skill. Making a great mix tape is a work of art. In order to make a great mix you need to listen to a wide range of artists. You also need to consider the audience. In other words, who are you making the mix for? It’s always smart to select music that you are guaranteed meets the tastes of the listener, but it also good to experiment and include some tracks that they may have never heard otherwise. Creating a message with the mix is also a plus, and I personally love to add tons of movie clips as an added bonus. There has to be a specific flow as well. Pacing is essential in creating a mood (or moods), but you don’t want any of the juxtapositions to be too jarring. And as with any form of editing, you need
