Description: I definitely spend more time reading about movies and looking at lists of movies on Letterboxd than I do actually watching movies.


I Watched Parasite, 2019

This review may contain spoilers.

Can’t stop thinking about ghosts in the basement and cockroaches scurrying under the furniture. And how maybe children’s fears should be taken seriously. This is a metaphoric spoiler.

I Watched Killer of Sheep, 1978

Posted: 2020.01.05

Kids singing rhymes
Dogs barking
Car ignitions turning over but failing to start
This bitter earth
Scuffling and throwing rocks
An ice cream truck on the next street over
That’s America to me

Happy Life Day

Posted: 2019.11.28

I forgot to observe Life Day several days ago, but I’ll observe it today on the Internet and on my website. I did share Life Day with my kids (just about 7 minutes worth) soon after when I had come to myself and realigned my priorities. They kind of loved it, and kind of thought it was terrible, which is just as it should be.


(This embed is queued to start at the key celebration of life moment at the closing of the special, so have no fear in pressing the play button.)
