Blogging break

As I did in November, this week I am minimizing my time on the computer, so I can continue cleaning up my office. I won't be posting much, if anything.

But I'll be back next week.

Micro movie review

The Big Short: The story of the housing and credit bubble of the mid-2000s, and some fairly weird guys who realized what was happening and profited greatly from it. The film is quirky and confusing even if you know something about finance. Though it tries to explain things, sometimes quite humorously, if you don't know much about finance I think you'd be totally confused.

Texts from last night

(586): Just had a med school interview with that doctor I fucked in college. He remembered. Asked if I still have my nipple rings. Overall, I think it went well.

(630): The highlight of the night was definitely when you starting telling ppl you could shapeshift and "proved" that by stripping.

(310): Next time you decide to go downstairs hungover, please warn me. I now have to explain to twenty eight year olds why you were naked.

(715): Even with help how did you paint a bullseye around your asshole?

(773): Know we haven't talked but having an orgy party on the 20th if you're interested. If not, disregard this text.
(517): Who is this?

(508): i woke up in a bed of pop tarts

(306): Meeting up with one of your students at your drug dealers house is always an awkward moment

(214): You know I've done a lot of messed up stuff. But I never thought I would have to put a bandaid on my dick. Yet here we are.

(708): I should know better than to open your texts at the grocery store

It's Festivus! Time for feats of strength and the airing of grievances

To all Seinfeld fans (and non-fans), Happy Festivus!

BlankTo the tune of Let it Snow:
What a lovely day for Festivus,
a Festivus for the rest of us,
this is the place to hate,
let them wait, let them wait, let them wait.

It doesn't show signs of stopping,
I bought some caps for popping,
aluminum pole's aglow,
let them know, let them know, let them know.

With the feat of strength at hand,
stop crying fight your old man,
so go and drink another beer,
T'is the best time of the year!

What a lovely day for Festivus,
a Festivus for the rest of us,
gather your family around,
cut them down, cut them down, cut them down.

No need for decorating,
as tinsel's too distracting,
all you need is a metal pole,
cleanse your soul, cleanse your soul, cleanse your soul.

With the feat of strength at hand,
stop crying fight your old man,
so go and drink another beer,
T'is the best time of the year!

Micro movie review

The Danish Girl: The somewhat fictionalized story of the transgender woman to get the first gender reassignment surgery, back in the 1920s. The film was very well-acted and beautifully filmed. My biggest complaint about the film is that people with little exposure to transgender people will think this is typical of how transsexual people realize their true gender identities. Today, at least, it is most frequently at a much younger age.

Spectre: The latest James Bond movie. It's well-made, a little lighter in tone than Skyfall. Daniel Craig is as good a 007 for the 21st Century as Sean Connery was for the 1960s.
