DFFOO: What ghost in the Innkeepers ;)
I recently picked up an extra gig teaching developmental writing, and it’s part of the Academic Development department, which also includes the developmental math courses. So I had a nightmare the other week that I showed up to my first class and discovered I had to teach Algebra. Horrible.
MINOR SPOILER FOR THE INNKEEPERS: Bijoux – the scene where she’s sleeping and then the ghost is in the bed next to her and she runs down into the lobby in her underwear. It was in the trailer, so I don’t know how much of a spoiler it is.
Hahahhaha. Just messing with you :)
^ Oh lol I thought maybe you were just confused!
I made a rage comic this morning. It’s a true story.
@doofu – that’s because there are no cool theaters in phx. i know of literally one in tempe and one in scottsdale. it’s a sad situation. i’m sure you’re better off in atl. good luck in yr new career xD
Yeahhhh I was gonna make some quip about Phoenix but I realized that’s Ruby’s jurisdiction! :)
Was it super -fancy coffee?? What kind??
It’s a Trader Joe’s brand. Most of the food here is Trader Joe’s, and comes with express instructions to eat it all before it goes bad. Trader Joe’s is one of those places where depending on how you shop there, it can be really expensive or cheap. He seems to go for the highest quality stuff, so most of the food is expensive.
I love the lemon cookies from there. I go the cheap route there.
I used to get coffee at a 7/11 by my middle school. It was really damn good.
let me just say this. once you’ve been to brazil u can never go back to ordinary coffee again :(
Yeah. In the UAE the Arabs were all like, “We invented coffee, you Westerners know nothing about coffee!” I was all like, “We have South America. Point and match motherfuckers.”
Looks like I have my birthday movies planned out. This is what I’ll be seeing on Wednesday:
Beasts of the Southern Wild
Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry
Shaping up like one of the better days since I started doing this three years ago.
Day-um, work it brother.
You’re all invited. Coffee is free.
Ha! When is it, like tomorrow?
Enjoy! And spread the sweet love of the coffee!
Well I have the gas money from the housesitting but I can’t leave the housesitting until the 10th.
So screw you AND your plans!
Oh and happy birthday, by the way!
Thanks, and screw you too!
I’m most excited for Ai Weiwei although I’ve heard great things about the other two, too.
@house: Have a great birthday, all of those movies look great. Beasts especially, though a lot think otherwise :(
Moonrise Kingdom and Beasts of the Southern Wild are in my top 5 of the year so far. I look forward to hearing your takes on them.
What’s Ai Weiwei about?
AI WEIWEI: NEVER SORRY
Ai Weiwei is known for many things—great architecture, subversive in-your-face art, and political activism. He has also called for greater transparency on the part of the Chinese state. Director Alison Klayman chronicles the complexities of Ai’s life for three years, beginning with his rise to public prominence via blog and Twitter after he questioned the deaths of more than 5,000 students in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. The record continues through his widely publicized arrest in Beijing in April of 2011. As Ai prepares various works of art for major international exhibitions, his activism heats up, and his run-ins with China’s authorities become more and more frequent. –Sundance Film Festival
In this unprecedented look at Ai and those close to him, Klayman’s camera captures his forthrightness and unequivocal stance. She gives a larger picture of the artist as an individual, a symbol of China’s oppression, and a powerful voice against a country that still denies its citizens many basic freedoms.
The Chinese artist who keeps getting arrested for standing up to his government.
Eh, doesn’t sound like my thing. Unless it turns out he’s a chronic masturbator or something, then I’d be interested.
I’m quite dismissive of a lot of documentaries. Grizzly Man remains my favorite.
Happy Pre-emptive Screwday, Hou!
