My 13 Favorite Movies (in alphabetical order)

Look. You think I didn’t want to cut this thing off at ten, like a normal human being? And you think I didn’t want to fill it with a bunch of deep cuts that’d earn me points with all the cool kids on Letterboxd? Hell yeah, I did! But I’ve knocked back about a half bottle of truth serum (Ardbeg Uigeadail) and this is the sad truth that’s come spilling out.

You. With your Raining in the Mountain and your Killer of Sheep and your Fill ’er Up With Super. OK, yeah, you’re cooler than me, but you know what? You'll never live like common people. You'll never do whatever common people do. Never fail like common people. You'll never watch your life slide out of view. And then dance and drink and screw. Because there's nothing else to do.

I think I need to go to bed. Now where the hell did I put that bed?
