Love it. Cloe and Ryan and I went up the mountains last night to watch this.
Oh shit, I'm quite sure you're right: it must've. Thanks for mentioning it.
Emma. You are the nicest person. Who sends letters like this?!
I love it.
(Thanks for sharing, D.)
I'm pretty sure this'll end up being one of those movies that drives me nuts — but, who knows.
(Meanwhile, Cloe: "This looks fucking awesome.")
Cloe and I made the same joke.
God bless us. Every one.

A—a contemporary blockbuster reference? From Teague Chrystie, on this forum, from that movie, localized entirely within this subthread?!
Right? I'm almost proud of myself.
(Somebody on YouTube kept playing that clip over and over in their analysis of something else, and it eventually buried deeply into my psyche as a platonic ideal of terrible writing. I get distracted by it appropos of nothing.)
At least it doesn't feature Patrick Stewart as a talking turd.

Isn't this the first current-FIYH-community baby?
Well, there was Owen, but.
I love how they cuss in English. (1:49.)
I want to contribute to this thread, but essentially nothing happened to me in 2018. My whole year was dedicated to one long, lonely project that I still can't talk about, and most conversations were dedicated to one disgraceful president I still can't come to terms with, so... this'll just be one of those years that gets lost to time, I guess.
(Like 2014 — what the fuck happened in 2014? Or 2006, for that matter? Or 2000?)
Anyway. I hung out with Cloe. I learned some valuable personal lessons, and made headway in the project of becoming myself. I laid the groundwork for a new chapter, which I may or may not be proud of later. I read a lot of books; I didn't write as much as I wanted to. (I wrote a lot, but.)
Life felt paused.
I award you two points for your thematically-appropriate usage of 'reckon.'
I'm unfamiliar with Prey, but the book sounds lovely, and yeah: that nugget is a fascinating insight. I'm keepin' it.
fine I'll watch Phantom Thread jesus
(No-but-seriously: that was a well-articulated encapsulation. 'Aching.' Nice.)
How would Bumblebee fare in a double-feature with Real Steel? Didja ever see that one?

The DGA would fight that to the bitter end, but the WGA would shrug and say Why Not, because it's already exactly like that for writers.
Ha! I was just kidding around, but yeah — totally didn't think of that.
