I just saw Raging Bull for the first time. Tough watch. I’ve seen only a handful of Scorsese, and they’re always effecting, but 🔥 take alert, I’m not sure I like them.
Can’t believe it’s been 10 years since my transplant. My deepest gratitude to family and friends who saw me through, and to my friends at Hackensack UMC who saved my life.
Allow Satan into your life: chmod 666 my_soul.txt. The permissions of the beast.
Magazine photographers have exactly 6 ideas for shooting comedians: 1) Talking into something that’s not a phone like it’s a phone. 2) Striking a glamorous pose while wearing something stupid. 3) Laughing! 4) Making a strained face like they don’t know what’s going on. 5) What is that awful, awful smell? 6) Laughing!
I was in a public restroom last Sunday. A man comes in, uses the urinal, washes his hands, says, “Aw shit,” then goes into a stall. It made me very happy.
Just saw The Best Years of Our Lives, which I recommend. Like many movies prior to around 1970, it features a lot of cheery, well-mannered alcoholism. You can get it public domain on archive.org 🍿
Is that a blintz in your pocket, or are you just disgusting?
Had another great time at #BrooklynJS last night. Stay BAMF NYCJS.
I want a museum called Famous Historical Capes: Taking Back Back Cloth From Superheroes. Their only exhibit is every cape Liberace ever wore.
I just saw The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie on Amazon Prime. I’d like to like it more. 🍿
I’m reading The Stand and I think there’s a mucus under my bed.
I wrote a choose your own adventure about not getting pantsed. 🕹 https://www.chrisdeluca.me/article/dont-get-pantsed/
Book idea: “The Cat and the Splat”. It teaches children about roadkill through rhyme.
Saw Jojo Rabbit, and it’s fantastic. Hilarious, touching, poignant, hilarious. That’s 3 for 3 for Taika Waititi. Do yourself a favor and go see it. 🍿
Recommend Alan Ralph’s blog for Micro Monday. Great insights.
If you pause in the middle of a thought, people will try to fill that moment with themselves.
I saw #DolomiteIsMyName this weekend and I really enjoyed it. Eddie Murphy is great in it, but can we all agree that Wesley Snipes is a complete assassin? Super fun performance. 🍿
I just saw Spartacus for the first time. Amazing to think that the same director is responsible for Spartacus, 2001, Dr Strangelove, Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, and Cheaper by the Dozen 2 🍿
It’s fine to have a strong opinion about a profession that’s not your own, and it’s fine to not have a strong grasp of that other profession, but not both.
I’m on the bus to NJ for five minutes and I’ve already been misted with a cracked Coors. Home sweet home.
