Study Up For 'Think': Your Turn To Throw Tomatoes At Local Critics

Tastemakers. Analysts. Observers. Critics are routinely called much worse. It's part of the job. D Magazine food editor Nancy Nichols, music writer Preston Jones of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and Art&Seek's resident aesthete Jerome Weeks join Think host Krys Boyd today at noon to tell their side.

Recent reviews by each critic beg for listener inquiry. Did Jones feel any guilt after leaving Fort Worth's Untapped Festival early due to "miserable conditions" outside, while audience members stuck it out?

Did subsequent Italian meals taste better for Nichols after she found Mi Piaci Cucina Italiana's cooking " limp as the withering leeks in tall vases on the tables?"

And as for Weeks, a question from me: When did he disown his inner child? I was sure he'd adore the rough-and-tumble Bowie mumblecore that is On The Eve.
