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.

Good morning Party People, it's my last work day before my vacation

flirting with someone from north Florida by flexing a bunch and saying "welcome to Gainesville"

I'm in the bathroom and catch my reflection in the mirror. I stare at myself for way too long. "What the fuck is wrong with this picture? Am I ill?"

What I though was disease was actually gains.

Show thread

last week I felt a weird tingle on the beds of my feet, stretching up to my calves, and I was fretting that, since I had been walking more, I pulled a nerve or jacked my foot in a semi-permanent way, maybe a circulation issue, maybe a strokes? So I called 811 to talk to a nurse...

All Your Horses, by Kay Ryan
Say when rain
cannot make
you more wet
or a certain
thought can't
deepen and yet
you think it again:
you have lost
count. A larger
amount is
no longer a
larger amount.
There has been
a collapse; perhaps
in the night.
Like a rupture
in water (which
can't rupture
of course). All
your horses
broken out with
all your horses.
