commented on The Spazz Age
my favorite jab that none of the college kids sitting around me seemed to get was when Daisy slipped a pen into Buchannan's pocket in the party scene "in case you need to write down any phone numbers." aka, "whatever, I know you fuck other people. why don't you go chase that for a bit and leave me to my flirtation." I laughed.
commented on What Do You Think of the Gravity Trailer?
This trailer played last night in front of Gatsby, and I lost my faith in humanity (again) after just about the entire theatre burst into laughter when the astronaut spins away unthethered to her presumable death. I was sitting in the front, and looked behind me incredulously to see dozens of people making the spinning motion with their hands, throwing their heads back laughing.
commented on Watch SPD Liberally Apply Pepper Spray to Protester Faces
The 'correct' protester response would be to lie down in the road. The 'correct' police response to that is to drag you into a paddy wagon and arrest your protestin' self.
Unfortunately... I think protesters in this country no longer believe that the police will act in good faith and not kick/abuse/pepperspray the shit out of anyone sitting in. see also, Occupy Berkley.
commented on The Slog Netflix Streaming Club: Freaks & Geeks, "Kim Kelly Is My Friend"
@14, me too. When I watched it again many years later.
I saw some of it on the original run, but I was a freshman in high school. And a lot of it was too painful to watch, then. And I hated Kim and wanted Daniel. Watching it again as and adult... I want to give Kim and Daniel both a safe place to sleep.
F&G is goddamn ART in the way that few things are.
