Allow me to reintroduce myself.

My name is Derek. I'm an internet old-timer who lives in , and I am the founder and admin of laserdisc.party, the video store of the fediverse (or so I like to think).

And while I do talk lots about (went to grad school, wrote a thesis on The Room and Snakes on a Plane, have a film-crit website and two movie podcasts), I'm just as likely to talk about , , , and your garden variety comedic nonsense.

I'm a fan of winter because my jet-engine of a gaming console suddenly doubles as a space heater.

spoilers for in the Cold of the Nght (1990) 

friends there are parodic amounts of sultry sax in this film

sleazeball sax and neon-drenched early-90s B erotic thriller that (a) plays like De Palma's Body Double for meatheads and, more crucially (b) has this inspired use of artifacted video and offbeat lighting cues to accentuate the fakiness of the whole enterprise; its chintz and artificiality becomes a feature rather than a bug
