Short conversation while driving over a tall bridge.

Published by under Snippets,The Man

The Man:  There don’t seem to be this many trees when you’re at street level.  I mean, from up here, you’d think our city was more of a forest than a city.

Me:  Yes.  It’s the magical forest of poverty, crime, and unemployment.

(Sometimes I can be a real downer).

Quentin Tarantino has spoken, everyone else can sit down and shut up.

“The second World War could still deliver more stories and films, but I believe that Quentin [Tarantino, director] put a cover on that pot. With Basterds, everything than can be said to this genre has been said,” Pitt tells the German magazine Stern. “The film destroys every symbol. The work is done, end of story.”


Brad Pitt is so funny.  It’s best when he’s serious and he doesn’t realize how stupid he sounds.

Actual words of a blog post, actually written by me.

These JK Harris commercials have always confounded me.  You know, the ones where the person is standing in shadow, talking about how the IRS was beating down their door to get the back taxes, so they called JK Harris?  Well, at the bottom of the screen in the scene showing the shadowy victim of the IRS is some text that reads:  “Actual words of a JK Harris customer, as spoken by an actor”.

Watch the commercial.

So…if the person in the commercial is an actor, why is it so important to protect their identity with the Shadow of Back Tax Shame?  What horrible secrets lurk behind this thin veil of anonyminity?  Discuss.
