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!

a day of haze
under one umbrella
by autumn's wind

think I might go Thomas Mode and watch Tread today

I think I want to grow my hair long again, but that means I have to deal with weeks and weeks of unruly whorls and untameable cowlicks

just enough spring rain
smoke rising
wandering fly

the best Ryan Murphy project is clearly Running with Scissors because that is also the name of a Weird Al album

oh jeez I'm about to get that Garf Bump

y'all there is little to no good reason to be a giant ass hole to eachother online

what in blazes happened here while I was workin'

Happy #VerseThursday Here’s a small poem by Langston Hughes

Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.

Good morning Party People, It's a brisk and overcast

Here it is, my magnum opus, my life's work as a writer...

Here's a cute doodle of a pig who is an astronaut.

CUT TO
Old Derek hulking out and tearing his phone book-ass manuscript about the sea or whatever with his bare hands

@derek me, knitting a cowl, baking incredible bread and cookies, drawing goofy shit to make my friends happy, writing a comedy newsletter that several people pay me actual money for: god I wish I was creative
