What Would Happen With Health Care Repeal →
klendathudrop: The House will be voting on health care repeal this week. If Republicans had their way (they won’t) and the Affordable Health Care Act were to be repealed, here’s what would happen: Ten of millions of uninsured will lose health care security. Millions more will worry they could lose their coverage if they get sick or lose their jobs. Rising health costs won’t be reigned...

I am bored enough to do this. Anything asked over the next two hours I will answer with complete honesty and a minimum of sarcasm.
My Year In Movies: the summing up.
SO that is that. My year in movies is complete. I reached my (set very late in the game) goal of at least 3 movies a week. Honestly, I was hoping to break 200 at first, but I didn’t account for the allure of television series & pbs documentaries on Netflix and Xbox RPGs. IN ANY EVENT, here’s the master list (with links!), and later, I’m going to write about what I’m...
My Year In Movies #156: Bad Lieutenant: Port of...
What a strange, crazy film. Shot with what feels like a late-’80s style, and with a central performance by an absolutely manic Nicolas Cage, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans is kind of insane. Cage’s character runs roughshod over any semblance of law & order throughout the run time, and the very atmosphere of the film, down to the score, oozes the feel of weird steamy...
My Year In Movies #155: Hearts Of Darkness: A Film...
As I’ve stated twice here already, I love the film Apocalypse Now. Francis Ford Coppola’s war film on the culture of Vietnam, and on the reflection of American culture that it was, is still as powerful and funny and horrific as it was when I first saw it. I had never watched the making of documentary before though, so this was an interesting look into the personal hell that Coppola...
My Year In Movies #154: Apocalypse Now Redux...
I watched this again today, while cleaning and doing all sorts of fun things. The reason I did will become clear when I finish the next film I watch… I mean, the reason other than “this movie is fucking great.” Because it totally is.
My Year In Movies #153: The Social Network (#2)
Yep, still loved it. Isn’t it amazing how good writing, good performances, and good directing make a good movie? Pretty much 90% of the film-making industry could stand to learn this.

Top 10 Movies of 2010.
This list didn’t really come together until a few days ago. But now here it is, my personal top 10 of 2010 in the world of film. Understand: this is a list of what I like. There might be films I think were overall better FILMS, but that I maybe didn’t like as much, for whatever reason (Winter’s Bone comes to mind.) So, yeah, so, anyway: Exit Through The Gift Shop The Social...
How I Became Invisible - “The District...
My Year In Movies #152: 9
This movie was visually interesting, but ultimately empty, and in all honesty, kind of boring. Watching the original short, it’s obvious the writer took the basic concepts that Shane Acker had laid out and implied through visuals (and no dialogue) and mashed them together with the cliched “hero rises” plot to make the same damn movie we’ve all seen a million times. The...
My Year In Movies #151: Despicable Me
This was a lot of fun. While the plot itself was predictable, it was the little details and side-gags along the way that made it what it was. It might be sacrilege, but I had more fun and laughs watching this than Toy Story 3, and might have actually enjoyed it more on an overall level. I’m a sucker for evil villain things, yeah, but still. FUN.
My Year In Movies #150: Toy Story 3
I’m of mixed feelings on this movie right now. It was good, no doubt there, as its a Pixar joint, and they are classy bastards. I’m still not quite convinced it was a necessary sequel, as all of the points in the Toy Story “uber plot” that it made were made pretty well in the previous sequel. And its attempt to make me give a shit about Andy as a character was pretty much...
My Year In Movies #149: True Grit (2010)
It’s just not fair. How do the Coen Brothers do it every time? I mean, yes, there were a couple films that weren’t perfect (The Ladykillers, Intolerable Cruelty), but those films were still entertaining. But when “just entertaining” is the LOWEST point on your cinematic oeuvre, that’s saying something. All of that is just a long way of saying that True Grit is a...
SO: I have a Bandcamp page now. →
Please go here, and check out my EP, This Is An Adventure, that is now for sale. It is 4 tracks, plus 3 bonus home demos, for only $2 (or more, if you choose to be so generous!) I hope to record a full-length sometime in the near future, and need the capital to do so, so if you could be so kind as to direct all your friends and compatriots my way, that would be fantastico! THANKS!

Top 10 Albums of 2010.
I revealed my top 10 on a once daily basis over the past week and a half, culminating in today’s Number One. So here’s the top 10 in one handy list. This year, for some reason, a lot of music just didn’t connect with me, especially a lot of the things people were raving about. Who knows why, but these ones did. Every album is awesome, please look them up and enjoy. Kanye West -...
