On Sundays Are Killing Us And They Must Be Stopped

I do not know a more awful object than Herreman of a Sunday evening when he has nothing to do.

On "Her": This Movie Makes No Sense

Yes, his letters were terrible, but I took that to be because he was just a nebbishy sadsack. He is not a Hero. He's just a guy. (Who makes a fuckton of dollars pumping that shit out.) If it could happen to him, it Could Happen To You.

I think you're giving short shrift to her essential aliveness which to me was the main question of the movie. Is she real? She isn't just a machine. She can feel and want and ache and cheat and leave.

She's fucking alive dude.

On Can You Construct A Functional Joke About A 9-Year-Old At The Oscars?

On Hendrix 70

It's my little brother's 30th birthday. His name is John James Marshall Schoenkopf. (Marshall is mom's maiden name.) We all knew they shared a birthday, but not one of us had the faintest idea of Jimi's full name until I read this post.

On The Intolerable Evolution of Poynter's "Romenesko+"

One of the things she bolded WAS a block quote, preceded by "The paper reports:" with a colon and everything.

On The Intolerable Evolution of Poynter's "Romenesko+"

The best part of the stupid thing that stupid lady wrote, is that Romenesko's sentence would start, "The paper said," and then go on to say the things the paper said. She bolded them all as "not properly attributed."
