bringing out the dead: scorsese can even make nicolas cage look good

holy fuck, this is a purdy flik. it’s kinda like watching the matrix, where you have to squint your eyes or just flat out pretend that fucking talent-suck keanu reeves has most certainly NOT been cast as the quasi-savior-esque “neo” just to somehow, some way,  enjoy it… ahem. scorsese rocks, despite fucking nicolas cage. filmsmithing. […]

the motherfucking payback: michael caine as harry brown

hmmm. maybe it’s just because i hate fucking opportunistic, parasitic, piece of shit, lowlife scum and, well, therefore love vigilante comeuppance (cause and effect/affect), or maybe it’s because this is THE definitive michael caine flick; a great script, great cast and all michael fucking caine. who fucking cares? trust your ol’ buddy shim: you will […]

so effing recommended: lourdes castro’s latin grilling

most of the time cooking for the hella-rich and then teaching snotty white kids will turn your old world rustic soul to a crack n’ hookers mush but, not this time. this wonderful book is basically a heartfelt fuck you to tex-mex and reminds us all that brazil, argentina and of course, cuba (just to […]

the doctor will see you now, mr. freud: the maxx

you know, you probably won’t catch me raving about too many animated titles around the highly sought diet-of-insects forensic/tasting lab-campus/complex, but this, sir/madam, is, the fucking shhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiittt: sam kieth‘s very cool animated version of the maxx. it’s pretty fucking close to the comic, nerdlinger, and the voice characterizations are better than i/you could have imagined; […]

old vines in the new world: m.j. keenan’s blood into wine

right off i’m gonna go ahead and highly recommend this doc because it is not made by that walmart/dud/scud of wine, the great homogenizer:  robert mondavi. anyhoo, i am as much into the holy concept of arizona bay as much as the next miscreant motherfucker and this doc does deliver, somehow, but damn, the momentum […]

where do we come from? what are we? where are we going?: the urban cliff revolution by douglas larson et al

occasionally, in my darker moments, i look around at this urban death-maze/concrete prison we have built for ourselves and wonder what the fuck we were thinking to have made living so very unlivable. well it turns out that we are actually little more than what we have evolved into thanks to the (ongoing) undeniable influence […]

i hear you, bro: mark schatzker seeks the perfect steak and pretty much comes up empty handed

my high recommendation of mark schatzker’s book, steak, does have something to do with my own struggle to find steak that doesn’t suck, but moreover, awareness of the (ever-)increasing sad state of affairs that is known as, shudder, commodity food, and specifically, beef production. beef product? hmmm, that sounds like it might be headed in […]
