Name your best actor. What do you go for? King of the jungle Christian Bale types? Big bear action figures like Chris Hemsworth (think Thor)? Or comedian monkeys: the Seinfelds out there? The division, by the way, is not mine. Lorne Michaels, the creator of Saturday...read more

I started this blankly staring into the computer screen, determined not to budge until something came out of it. And frankly, when I started out on my own, four years ago, I had no idea where I was going. I’d love to make up a story about how I always knew I’d be a...read more

Philosopher geeks with a taste for the classics: movies, books and superheros. I like. And give on Patreon.
Crisp videos on filmmaking and culture. Am a Patron. Je like again.
The Alpha and Omega. A cool way to get up to date with Aristoteles without reading 47 volumes.
Because I go gaga over creams, and blush, and lipstick.
