    Small unworthy things - as you were

    If you made a list of the five greatest things ever, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups from Trader Joe's would be unlikely to make the cut. However, they would definitely come up in conversation. Also, I wrestled the lid of the pickle jar off and splashed pickle juice all over my around the house cardigan sweater from Target.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Hindsight in 2020

    Parasite - I liked it quite a bit. I bet this was a fun story to write. I loved the ending. Up there with Serious Man as best endings I have seen. Once Upon a Time in...Hollywood - Liked this one as well. I like both DiCaprio and Pitt...I am a pretty big Pitt fanboy to be true. They were both good and I liked their relationship onscreen. There was something...maybe nostalgic about this movie? I can't describe it properly but watching it made me feel good despite the dark undertones. I liked it better than the past few QT movies if only by a bit. Hold the Dark - This one was moderately good in ways but ultimately a disappointment. I chose it because I am a fan of Jeffrey Wright and I also like Riley Keough and I also like outdoorsy cinematography and small-remote-town-is-strange type stories. All good. The plot was hard to really grasp...or maybe comprehend the motivations of the characters. I sortof think I know what they were getting at. Maybe? It was alright.

    Rothfuss XV: Move along, nothing to see here

    I'd like a PM too. It doesn't need to be true...just make something up.

    What does it look like? Is it the red and white cover with the woman in the mirror? Strange and Norrell is definitely among my all-time favorites. Right now I'm finishing up Connelly's The Night Fire. Fairly quick crime read as good as most Connelly books. I wish Connelly would stop teaming his characters up. As much as I like Bosch, I want some more Renee Ballard solo books.

    I watched Polar last night. Every scene with Mikkelsen in it is good just because...Mikkelsen is in it. Even a ridiculous scene is made better by his presence. Hudgens did a pretty good job, too. Otherwise I'm not sure what to think. I find myself trying to think of reasons to like it. The movie is pretty absurd, though. I even like to think I can see what they were going for...but they missed for the most part. There is one sequence that I thought was really great...

    Disclaimers in general are not so good.

    Totally agree. I fucking hate this. I am surprised I didn't think of it earlier. Another one that grates is when people say "not gonna lie".

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Hindsight in 2020

    Last week I watched Joker. Overall I liked it and agree with most that Phoenix is very good in the role. The one thing about it that I really didn't like was... ...but otherwise I thought it was good. Tonight I watched The Irishman. I liked this one as well and was fine with the long runtime. I have heard people complain it's just run of the mill Scorsese which is true. Without seeing any of the credits you would know who made this film. That's fine, though. Run of the mill Scorsese is still Scorsese. I liked Pesci and Pacino was good. De Niro was great. There are almost no women in the movie at all. The women who are there only rarely speak. I can assume the source material was such and the subject matter doesn't leave a lot of room for women but it makes a lopsided film. Even by Scorsese standards The Irishman is completely about men.

    It always grates on me when people say "it's my Friday" on the last day of their work week. Or "Monday" on the first or whatever etc etc. I hate it even more when they ask me if it's my Friday because then I have to participate.
