Singer not the song

If you're a thorough Dzyd, you've already unearthed Dizzies T.M. Rob's comment in my previous post, the one musing about feature adaptations of non-narrative nonfiction. (That should be an Oscar category, eh?) Basically he is saying: Ed, you are too late, someone else has already written an in-depth list of six of these films!

And here's the kicker—that "someone else" is none other than Dizzies T.M. Matt Singer!

Who come to think of it has not posted here in many a moon....Are you "just not that into" us anymore, Matt? Was the Dizzies fee not high enough for you? When I said I would pay $50 for each post from a Dizzies Team Member, I thought I was being generous. I know it was kind of sneaky to pay Sweeney $100, but I didn't think the news would get out. So now — [OK, I don't know where this joke is going.]

ANYWAY, here's Matt's piece—it's a lot of fun.

He forgot Saturday Night Fever, based on an ostensibly nonfictional feature by Nik Cohn in New York magazine ("Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night")--although maybe it doesn't really count since Cohn admitted he made up a lot of it.

I wonder, would Gangs of New York qualify...?
