One day there will be a morning when the MTA is not a total fucking disaster and I can just blithely get on the subway and not have to worry about it. On that day, the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. But that day is not today. Fuck.

New York people: vote no on ConCon tomorrow. Also if you’re in Manhattan, write in Daniel Fleidner for DA.

So after reading about Twitter latest Dick move, I’m going to try to spend a lot more time here. I have deleted Twitter from my phone, but I’ll confess to still checking it out on the iPad. But honestly, fuck Twitter right in the eye.

Now taking suggestions for a horror movie to watch tonight. I’ve seen most of the big classics (Night of the Living Dead, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Psycho, etc.) I prefer horror flicks that aren’t slasher movies. Anyone? Much appreciated!

Of course, “Clown” could also have been improved if the poster had said, “No one will be seated during the terrifying Chuck E. Cheese scene,” but I think they blew their chance.

So I feel that “The Conjuring” was fairly stupid, but at least it was better than the clown picture. Quaintly enough, I believe that “The Conjuring” could have been vastly improved by the presence of Peter Stormare. Also by Max von Sydow as Father Merrin, but I guess that ship has sailed.

Today’s lesson: go with your initial instincts *not* to watch a movie about a guy who accidentally puts on a cursed clown suit and then starts eating children, and no, even Peter Stormare can’t make that 90 minutes worthwhile.

Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.

Welp, I’ve gotten to the point where I can finally get down the stairs without too much pain to my knee. So of course, because I’ve been favoring the uninjured leg, my tendinitis flared up again and now I can barely walk on the other leg. I love my decaying physical husk.

Ok, so I did an abbreviated introduction about lollipops, along other things, but I forgot to put a hashtag. I came here largely because of (or , I guess). I’m a lawyer who, like most lawyers, wonders how and why she got that way. I also do a lot of choral singing. I have two cats named Sanjuro T. Cat and Yojimbo T. Cat, but we call them Sandy and Jimmy. Oh, I also like Kurosawa. I just saw Texas Chainsaw Massacre for the first time a couple of nights ago.

Exhibit 2. Also, this opening sequence goes on more or less forever. I always felt bad for the guy in the suit because he basically had to bounce and and down really hard to get his mouth to move:

Proposition: The stuff we used to watch as kids was actually kind of fucked up. Exhibit 1:

Hi, everyone: here through a combination of MetaFilter and my friend Dan. I’m holborne on Metafilter as well. I eat pizza a lot. Also I sometimes make my own lollipops.
