Re: It's a Wonderful Life

The movie's amazing before Clarence jumps in the river. It's just about the most amazing "slice of life" movie of the 30s & 40s we've ever had. I don't really give a shit about the third act and the alternate history part: but I watch with close attention everything up until then. That...

Re: Louis CK: Sincerely

Thanks for the review, been idly wondering about maybe buying it. I've bought things from him in the past. Covers his scandal throughout in an somewhat apologetic but slightly defiant manner-- not even close to the apology that people are demanding. I think that's fucked up. He's the only one of the...

Re: Right now I'm reading

Just finished The Honourable Schoolboy by John le Carré (1977). It's the sequel to Tinker-Tailor-Soldier. The first le Carré I've ever read. First ~50 pages or so I thought the prose was crazy ; very weird style. Then I caught on or something, and was hooked. Devastating ending. Been on a spy kick s...

Love Grant Morrison; but the best "episode" of every one of his story arcs, is always the penultimate one. Still love him, though.

Re: Right now I'm reading

Here is my theory. Many artists owe their success to both their talent as well as those around them who are able to channel the talent. Editors, publishers, agents, directors, etc. There are people who act as natural brakes and curb these artists worse tendencies. Stephen King was an author who spe...

As a standalone song. In the context of the album, which is a little folkish, the original works better.

Re: Wu Flu

Interesting tidbit in the thread: a fabric mask that would otherwise be ineffective, if you soak it in salt solution and then let it dry, it becomes very effective. Something about the salt penetrating the viral contaminate as it passes, and recrystallizing, destroying it. https://www.nature.com/art...

Range by David Epstein. Highly enjoyable. Got through the first 40 pages or so, and it seemed he was just making the same point over and over. A good point, but a bit repetitive.

Two track. Three-ish chapters of the OT and slower through the NT. I like the two track for variety's sake, especially reading it before bed.
