1. Public Catalog of Shame: Movies Watched July 2014

    NOTES: July sucked. Elaborating on that would just be whining. 

    I am trying to change up how I do things. I switched back to writing in a notebook instead of just working on the computer. And between going back to Scanners and rereading some comics — I guess I’m trying to spend some time with/fall back in love with some of the stuff I consider important. I don’t know how that’s going. Maybe time to go back to the well on the key texts. I have some movies (Terminator being the big example), that I try not to watch for years. I want to keep some things special. Which is also why I only allow my husband to have anal sex with me on christmas eve.

    Hey all you spine transportation systems, there’s a new episode of the only movie podcast in the world: Travis Bickle On the Riviera. This week things have finally caught up to Sean and he is brought in for a Peer Review Session with Chris “The Hatchet” Mautner. The Factual Opinion board of trustees have asked Chris to fire his ass on air so he won’t make a scene. There is a mock podcast recording in the process, where Sean and Chris discuss Scanners, Angel Heart, The Island, Les Diaboliques, Foreign Correspondent, and The Ninth Gate. Will the podcast survive? Yep. Will Sean be back next week? Oh, he died. CHECK IT OUT IN MEMORIAM
