    My dad's friend saw this in Cork City when it came out and some lad at the back shouted "Sure it's only a plastic bag baii".
    It sure is. It sure is.

    This is whatever, but it's definitely a different performance to Howie

    I love this film because so much of it is about Sandler acknowledging his flaws as a comedian. He'll be in the middle of a joke or a silly song or doing a funny voice and he'll go "aagh fuck this this is stupid". The man has more self awareness than any of us ever will. There's a joke about robin williams committing suicide but otherwise this has aged really well and I find it really moving in how it depicts people sneaking back into your life and getting lost in what could've been. The stuff at Leslie and Eric's house could easily be a dream.

    Stephen Hillenburg was a beautiful man with a beautiful imagination and it'll be many years before anyone brings so much joy to children or a cranky old cynic like me.
    Shedding a tear of the goofy goobers for Stephen's family tonight.

    Screened this for my university's film society tonight and 1 person showed up. I gave him a box of cookies as a reward, and he stayed to the very end.
