  •  STAFF BIO:

    Joshua Tanzer
    • Editor and founder

    Joshua Tanzer is a journalist, filmmaker and web developer in New York. He is the producer of "KABOOM: A Brief History of Bombing," currently in production. Previously, he was a web developer at Business Week Online. And for 10 years he's been the guy who wrote the headlines in the New York Post, thinking up bad puns and juvenile sex jokes for your morning amusement. (e.g. "Martha Stewart stock falling like a bad soufflˇ," "Adults who were spanked often get tanked.") It's like being paid to spend the rest of your life in the third grade. He got his start in journalism as a music writer, where he eventually decided that music criticism served little purpose ÷ except on the rare occasion when the writer could turn the readers on to some great new artist they hadn't heard of before. That, some years later, is the whole idea behind Offoffoff.com. Joshua is the creator, editor, designer, co-business manager and inevitably the most frequent writer at Offoffoff.com. He also designs and maintains Incorrectmusic.com, the companion web site to the torturously wonderful WFMU radio show "Incorrect Music." He used to be a fairly good guitarist but can hardly find the time anymore. He likes romantic dinners by candlelight and long walks on the beach. His turnoffs are regressive tax policy and mean people. Being of mixed French, German and Russian ancestry makes him feel like an honorary member of the Axis of Evil. If you think he wrote something stupid, especially about dance or art, he does not deny being a big ignoramus in those areas. His other web sites include:
