Dear Sunglass Hut,
I am available. Sometimes I kick it with my bro, sometimes not. We don't always wear women's designer sunglasses -- this is just an example of our range. We can make other faces too. For example, I can stare off in all kinds of directions. I think we would be perfect for one of your ads.

Spring Break Movie Review

Movie: Little Children.

Rating: 4 Jello Shooters

Review: While not as suicide-inducing as In the Bedroom (the last film by Todd Field), this movie traverses some dark and uncomfortable places. Like a cellar. The cellar in Goonies. The cellar where Chunk is thrown by the Fratellis, only to realize he's stuck in there with Sloth. But just as Chunk comes to know Sloth as a gentle, albeit freakish giant who saves the day, Little Children goes beyond emotional mind-fucking and suburban satire, and turns out to be really rewarding meditation on relationships and adulthood. You don't really cheer any of the characters on, but at the same time you want them to succeed. It sticks with you. Like my love of Sloth. But not Chunk. He's a fatty.

...I'm back. It was amazing. It was epic. With any luck or time, I'll post pictures later this week before we get on more planes and go to Portland. In the meantime, to focus on something I can easily distill -- Italian toilets are weird. Guys have it pretty easy, what with them being above ground and all. But often they're without seats, which is pretty gnarly, even in principle. Girls get really screwed, though. It's not uncommon to find public toilets on the floor. That's right. Y'all have to conduct business in a hole in the ground. Also, many sinks are operated by foot pedals. As a drummer, I found this quaint. For everyone else, it was just confusing. More later...
