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!

@MmeLibertine is the D.A. Pennebaker Depeche Mode doc any good?

rewatched Reservoir Dogs for the pad yesterday, and I gotta say, it holds up, and I can see why every dipshit in Hollywood was trying to ride its coattails in the 90s

*A Verse*

Do not be averse
To writing a verse.
Even if you think
It is way too terse.

#VerseThursday fun poem by Kenn Nesbitt

Bubble wrap, bubble wrap,
pop, pop, pop.
Wrapped around my bottom.
Wrapped around my top.

I’m double-wrapped in bubble wrap
It’s covering my clothes.
It’s wrapped around my fingers.
It’s wrapped around my toes.

I’ve wrapped myself in bubble wrap
exactly as I’d planned.
But now I’m tied so tightly,
I can barely even stand.

I’m having trouble walking.
I can hardly even hop.
I guess I’ll have to roll today.
Pop, pop, pop.

Good morning Party People, and oh would you look at that, it's already

Good morning Party People, we now begin our broadcast day
