    No Website for Old Men

    Where does a man my age go with his pop culture thoughts and observational musings?

    I've been posting on Letterboxd for over 5 years and I still feel like the guy sitting at the bar watching the ballgame while the kids gyrate to 'W.A.P.'. I don't quite fit in - but I'm not sure someone in their 40's fits in anywhere on the world wide web. I'm just a dad chaperoning a bunch of self-loathing…

    Sincerely Louis C.K.

    ★★★★

    Listen, I’m not going to sit here and pretend being a Louis C.K. fan is easy.

    Sure, he’s no Harvey Weinstein but leveraging your comedic stature so you can fondle yourself in front of impressionable young comedians is pretty despicable.

    If getting drunk and shitting your pants was a reason to kill yourself I never would've survived my twenties.

    Fargo

    ★★★★★

    Let's talk about the films we truly love.

    Our absolute favorites.

    The movies we use as a measuring stick when comparing other films and opinions. They don't have to be considered "classics" or win Academy Awards. They just have to remind us of why we love cinema in the first place.

    Joel and Ethan Coen's FARGO is that movie for me.

    One big reason is the personal connection to the setting. Lifelong Minnesotan here, dontchaknow! And every detail in FARGO
