A movie that beautifully dissolves the fecund autumnal binary of Romantic and Horrific, if you're looking for a seasonal recommendation.
For anyone who enjoyed reading THE DEVOURERS; seek out YOU WON'T BE ALONE, a tactile, gorgeous, sensory feast that treads in the tracks of shape-shifting witches in 19th century Macedonia, one coming of age in the 'biting, retching' world as they trail selves behind them.

Greg Abbott says he is forcing rape victims to give birth but will offer them “baby supplies.” A woman who gets an abortion in Texas can face up to life in prison, meaning a rape victim who seeks abortion care can face greater punishment than her rapist. Cruel and sick.

Was having a short circuit in my head last night so started Stephen King's "Fairy Tale." It's beautiful. I don't know how it ends but the first hundred pages are exactly what I wanted.

I was just told somebody leaked some personal information about me and it’s going to be reported on today. I went into A-Fib on Wednesday, had my heart shocked back into rhythm on Thursday and I’m playing today. That’s it.

Maybe you can't kill Michael Myers because Michael Myers is an idea.

If you really wanna know what "cancelling" does to rich stars, Dave Chappelle is performing Radiohead songs with Dave Grohl, Louis CK is billed as a "controversial comedian", JKR is still selling books, and Daphne Dorman is still known as "Chappelle's trans friend who's dead".

THE RED HOUSE is on Noir Alley tonight. Edward G. Robinson keeps telling a teenage boy he can hang out with his niece as long as he doesn't go near the forbidden red house. But the boy just can't resist that red house. I haven't a clue as to what it could symbolize. (Good movie.)

Every single Republican in Congress sided with Big Pharma over seniors on Medicare when they voted against the Inflation Reduction Act. Only Democrats voted to cap out-of-pocket Rx costs at $2,000 a year.

Hard agree with Peter that STREET MOBSTER is Fukusaku's best, and one of the best Yakuza movies, period.
Replying to @nerdofnoir
Finally got around to STREET MOBSTER on @jordan_harper’s rec too. Knocked me out, best FUKASAKU I’ve seen to date.

The curtain has been ripped back and what was behind it was the realization that capitalism has brought us right back to feudalism. That the majority of wealthy people don't have assets because they are brilliant or talented, but because they were born to wealthy parents.

As Christian supremacists have lost public opinion on LGBT rights and same-sex marriage, they have embraced false accusations of pedophilia originally raised by the QAnon extremist movement, particularly smears about educators being "groomers" for teaching children about sex
