I thought I'd take a moment to post the links for The End of History, the video essay series by myself and Tucker Johnson. This was my most ambitious video essay project to date from the outset. It's funny to think of The Unloved about to make it to its 120th episode later this year because heaven knows I had no idea if it would last that long, so I can't say it was my intention to make something so enormous in scale and scope. But with The End of History, inspired in part by the podcast Blowback by Brendan James and Noah Kulwin, the idea was to make as close to a comprehensive criticism of and celebration of the machinery of Hollywood image making; the ways in which it is possible to make art in a place that rejects it but that the consequences for success in your endeavor may be beyond anyone's control. A cautionary tale, a eulogy for one of the greatest vulgarian artists ever born, and a love letter to men who are at once ubiquitous and misunderstood.
