Re: I don't wanna see that!!!!

Amazon sprung a trailer for The ABC Murders on me. John Malkovich as Poirot? What the actual fucking fuck? His accent is dinner-theater terrible, by the way. The greatest piece of film criticism ever uttered was by Lindsay Ellis when she described John Malkovich's acting style as: A dissatisfied Ol...

Yeah. Politics is full of landmines. If you're going to survive in the game, you either gotta know where they are or not give a shit what you blow up and be content with marginalization.

This is crazy 1% bullshit but it really bugs me that the ballet puts me, as a single-seat subscriber this year, amid a mass of one-off fucksticks. The opera has the sense to pair me with another single-seat subscriber.

Also this shit is already four minutes late.

I’ve never understood that argument. I get it if you are 18. I don’t get it if you are 30. How can you not know nobody can promise you anything? It’s like the first identifier of adulthood.
