Pinned toot

I believe are in order.

My name is Derek, and I like movies. I like them so much I went to grad school and got an MA in Film Studies. I wrote about Snakes on a Plane and The Room for my master's thesis. Still can't believe they let me graduate with that.

I'm also a pro-am film critic. I've been running for 4 years now, and I've had reviews crop up here & there.

Here's four movies I like a lot:
Take Shelter
Son of the White Mare
High and Low

A shorter, slightly more interesting list is the ones I had to cut from that list because of the constraints I had, or may merit inclusion on a future iteration of that list.

National Album Day, eh? Well, here's 200 of them I like.

Good morning Party People, friends and associates of our fair instance, today I entertain my sisters, who are visiting me from out of town. But more relevant to our interests, I'm seeing A Star Is Born with them this afternoon.

I can confirm: going to see They Might Be Giants on the 30th, lads. I'm so excited!
