Friend from my watchmaking class wrote some of the jokes. His brother is the screenwriter. I guess the whole setup has been a family joke for a while. Rad old dude. He heard me referring to my watch as a "three finger Elgin" and he decided that was an awesome pirate name.

Jim Taylor bugs me a little because I hated the shit out of Sideways. But at the same time, Sideways made it okay to never again drink Merlot.

Did you see "Downsizing"? What'd you think?

I did not, and probably won't.

I've been optioned twice and have effectively given up on feature-length entertainment. I'm not sure if that says more about movies or me, but it says a lot about somebody.

There are a lot of better ways to spend two hours, than sitting and watching one story clumsily unfold...

I've pretty much stopped watching movies, unless I'm sick and in bed.
