Several things I need to say right now

1. I saw "Zach and Miri Make A Porno" on Sunday and left the theater feeling the urgent need to shower. Not because of the (dull) sex scenes, but because of the bad dialog and overall writing. One of my least favorite films of all time is "Mallrats" so Kevn Smith, you are on a roll. A bad roll, but a roll.

2. I "befriended" someone from my past on Facebook. (Or as it was told to me today, I "facebooked" someone.) It took some gearing up of nerve to reach out to him, but he wrote back immediately and I was flooded with the realization that I never fully dealt with what happened between us. Two decades later, and I'm not even sure I can tell you what happened between us, but I think I couldn't have told you the day after, either (although it's admittedly much fuzzier now.) I don't know if I can have a casual friendship with him, with all the wondering. It's the stuff therapy is made for, I am telling you.

3. I have 2 Obama t-shirts. I don't know why but it seems very different to wear a t-shirt with the picture of a candidate's face on it, than to wear a t-shirt with a picture of the sitting president on it. I've never been that patriotic. I've always been an outsider, cool by my very disdain of the "establishment." How many others are feeling the jolt of this shift the way I am?

Re. "Zach and Miri Make A Porno". That is a disappointing review, but not everybody thinks so. 7.9 out of 10 on IMDB.

I was going to see it this weekend. Damn you! I am now torn.
