certainly hope the Awl offers proper respect to Paul Blart: Mall Cop auteur Stever Carr when he passes on in 2049 or whenever

I think there are only like five of us who remember still alive.

I remember right-wing Kulturkämpfern (e.g., fundie pseudointellectual Francis Schaeffer) inveighing against "Last year at Marienbad". Admittedly, that isn't much of a distinction, since such people are pretty much equal-opportunity inveighers against the modern world. Still, it made me wonder if I should see the film, and now that you've reminded me of it, I think I'll try to do so.

We'll always have the fart jokes…
