There's this show called Eastbound & Down. It amuses me. I wrote an article about it for Moving Image Source. You can choose to read it or not. I'm just putting it out there.
I also wrote a review of Funny People (for The Rumpus), another cultural product that tickled my particular fancy.
I've made a promise to myself to write a dissenting view of The Hurt Locker this weekend. I'm only putting it here to force me to write it. Otherwise I'd just watch baseball and massage my belly. So this paragraph is important.
Is everyone starting to compile their best-of-decade lists? Well, you should. Just expect a Tativille and Termite Art free-for-all that will have Termite Artisan Matt and Tati-villain Michael J. Anderson sniping at each other for a week or two (at least: catch their fabulous back and forth on Michael Mann here). I will calmly sit on the outside and contemplate how high Anchorman should be on the list. Something to look forward to.
