Pinned toot

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, 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.

Just imagining myself walking into a production office at Disney and saying “what if rather than making a billion fucking dollars, you didn’t do that but made a movie that I might like” and then being escorted off the property and violently beaten by Donald Duck

Good morning Party People, it is the last day of my summer vacation and I plan to spend it the same way I spent the previous 10: doing fuck all

Here's a Derek-ass take for your Saturday afternoon: Cake's Xan McCurdy is a wildly underrated guitar player

Good morning Party People, I'm going to the motherfuckin' movies today

Rewatching The Dark Knight Rises for the pod and I think it has Christian Bale's best work in that whole trilogy, and Tom Hardy is always a joy to watch, but there's such a deep bench doing so much slumming here it's kind of a bummer

Rewatched The Truman Show and damn does that movie hold up. It's like if M Night made Seconds or some shit.
