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.

Welcome!

So this past weekend I read live for the first time in 18 months and the organizer had the foresight to shoot some video, so here I am reading my poem "The Pearl" in front of a hot hot crowd

Good morning Party People, here are the five best movies I saw in what was frankly a stacked July 

Out of Sight
Bullitt
Crime Wave
The Deer Hunter
Eighth Grade

I have thoroughly taken the moviegoing experience for granted, seeing movies in theatres fucking rocks

There's some wild wild direction and offbeat compositions in this one, it is positively fevered, and it also has probably the single most fucked-up image I've seen in a Shayamalan joint, just a Hall of Fame disturbing image

First time I’ve put brush to canvas in two years. Given that fact, I’m happy with it. Blew some cobwebs off at least.
