a.k.a. Werner von Wallenrod
Over the years, I've written about hip-hop music and film for a variety of off- and on-line publications, including The Source Magazine (where I was also a managing editor), Hip-Hop Connection, Diggers With Gratitude, Urban Digital, Rebirth Mag, HiLobrow, The Miami Herald, Hip-Hop Isn't Dead, The Six To Six Shift, and Record Collector Magazine. Oh, and I wrote and edited for The Venue magazine back in college. The majority of my writing, however, takes place on my own blogs:
wernervonwallenrod.blogspot.com (part of my own hip-hop site)
breillat.blogspot.com (on the availability of French filmmaker Catherine Breillat's work in the English language)
toddsolondz.com (on the films of Todd Solondz)
and my latest venture, dvdexotica.com.
I'm also an independent filmmaker whose work has been shown in festivals across the country. My latest film is a short hip-hop documentary called Rap 'N' Reno.
