Brian Koppelman of New York City offers a nitpick that could apply to both the Rock Snob and Film Snob books: “One glaring oversight hit me. You left out Jon Brion, the tastemaker’s tastemaker. The man responsible for taking Aimee Mann out of ’til tuesday and into critics’ and listeners’ hearts (deservedly so). Once Kanye conferred the status on him, he went right to the top of the producing heap. He is today’s Eno. Right?”

Brian, the Snob Brain Trust is reviewing your case and is intrigued, especially given that Brion is also a soundtrack king. We are inclined to Brionize future editions of both books.
