The other day when I was watching the House Of Cards Season 4 dream sequence (Frank, while he’s down), it hit me again that this life is a dream. Yes, cliched, but read on. Each day we live the cycle: we awaken, live, and die when we go to sleep. I’ve always hated sleep—I’m not […]Read more "WE’RE ALL JUST HOLOGRAMS"
Of course they’re not related. I’m just being crazy. The Martian was a bore. Yeah I know it was nominated a lot. But it’s a fucking bore. Sitting through it was like being in a meeting, and I detest meetings. They make me want to scream and run around the room. Is there anything else […]Read more "The Martian, work, and other related things"
I’m stuck in a career rut. And I’m sure my husband wonders what could’ve been if he had hooked up with someone else. I’ve told him he can move on if he wants but he’s still here. I don’t believe in holding on to someone who wants to move on. Live and let live and […]Read more "THE ONLY PERSON WHO’LL HELP YOU OUT"

If you want to learn about Jobs, there’s Wikipedia, where the glorification is kept to a minimum, if […]Read more "WHAT TO SKIP THIS WEEKEND 10/11/2015"
And the final word on flicks this weekend: WALK IN THE WOODS: Don’t. Unless you want to watch two old men putter about in the woods, trying to get away from it all or something. There are a couple of bears in it. I’m amazed Redford signed up for this—he probably owes someone a favor. […]Read more "WHAT TO SKIP THIS WEEKEND"
AMERICAN ULTRA is a seriously dumb flick. *But* it features some truly amazing actors. And that just might rescue it from languishing at the box office. Whatever else Kristen Stewart might be, she’s a wonderful actress (not counting TWILIGHT). Jesse Eisenberg is so good he’s going to be Lex Luthor in the highly anticipated BATMAN […]Read more "ANY NEW FLICKS WORTH WATCHING? 8/21/2015"
