It's not like you needed one, but today's your day. #happypiday #prayforthemathnerds *Yeah, so what, I like adverbs and redundancies... what's so irrational about that?
Missed Trump's big speech last night. Not because I was balled up in the corner of my dark and damp basement with my eyes closed and ears plugged chanting la la la la la la la to drown out any possibility of hearing it until it was over. No, I missed it because I mercifully … Continue reading La La La La La La La…
Let's do this. ALT BEST PICTURE: I've only seen one "Best Picture" nomination -- "Arrival" and I thought it was mostly Zzz... -- so out of all the 2016 movies I have seen, not just those nominated, which still are only a handful... or, would it be an "eyeful?"...my Alt-Oscar for Best Picture of 2016 … Continue reading The Alt-Oscars*

Right? That's the rule, right? Books rule over movies. Always. Before I got involved with this whole short film thing, I always would get indignant after watching yet another failed movie adaptation of a book I liked.
