    Licorice Pizza

    ★★★★★

    It's picture day, 1973. The school line, filled with boy and girls wearing their best clothing and clearly looking cleaned up, slowly but surely shuffles forward as a woman holding a mirror walks around asking them if they’d like to see themselves in the mirror to make sure that they’re satisfied with themselves.

    Story time: 

    Vincent Gallo has a website where you can buy his sperm. If you’re not aware of this, I plead for you to journey out and give his site a glimpse. But beyond Vincent’s sperm, lies an email. 

    My ex-girlfriend and I had recently watched Buffalo ‘66 and loved it around this time last year. I would talk to my good friend, Che, about how much Gallo was a problematic artist whom I admired artistically. He asked me if…
