commented on ‘Beware of Mr. Baker’
watched this on amazon instant video this week. i'm not gonna lie, it's some compelling shit.
not to just straight-up compare two music docs that have nothing to do with each other side-by-side, but i watched "sound city" the night before, and found it to be constantly self-referential and overly long. "baker" was tight and well presented and full of better footage. i also developed a bit of respect for clapton, never thought that would happen...

tarantino is overrated. and always has been.
and i'm tired of people telling me i need to watch his movies. i watch them. they aren't very good. usually, they are just simulacrums of other movies or entire genres. i appreciate that he doesn't try and hide this fact, but it doesn't make anything he does wholly original.
add that to the fact that he comes off as a one-man cocaine disposal machine and i imagine him to be insufferable as an employer, family member or neighbor.

there oughtta be a moment like this on every high school sports team. and, regardless of records or scores or whatever, they oughtta be taken into consideration by college recruiters.

i fucking hate coffee. it's messy and it smells like burnt asshair. plus, people get way snotty about it.
tea is simple and relatively clean. it's also less likely to make you shit your pants. and while there's crazy cultural rituals and ceremonies surrounding it, most people can plop a bag of tea in some hot water without spending six bucks and then talking about it like it's some rare fine wine.
anyway, i don't give a shit about this dude and i hope he gets kicked in the coinpurse by an angry barista. and i hope after it happens, coffee beans spill from his pant legs like a freshly ripped open burlap sack of those precious columbian dirt beans.
