Jazz Guns Apple Pie is about more than just about music, weapons or tasty desserts. This blog is about America.
My name is Dean Arrindell and I love America. I don’t just love it because it’s my home. I love that a relatively young country with all its diversity, contradictions and disagreements among its citizens, produces some of the most dynamic and innovative ideas and people in the world.
I examine race, politics, media, sex and relationships in America. Jazz Guns Apple Pie will broadly cover where some of those issues come together. Within those areas, I’ll talk about two specific ideas. The first is how race is portrayed in popular culture and the media. The second is how the idea of the American man is changing in the media, while the reality of the American man is changing in relationships, at home and in the workplace.
