    Wes goes handheld!

    These really should’ve been bundled together more nicely on Netflix instead of floating in the  sludge of endless content. Together they cohesively link together as an examination of stories, the stories we tell ourselves, and even as character study of Dahl himself as a storyteller.

    Really Feckin’ good!

    Friendship is a confusing thing. We gain comfort in others, doing and talking about the same things every single day. Yet, after you had the same argument about that one movie you like but the other doesn’t, you get an aching like you could be doing something better with your time— Can I add something into this world rather than feck around my entire life…

    Then there’s the alternative view… that fear that at any moment the…
