The Guy Sure Looks Like Plant Food To Me

Spent Thanksgiving in Florida with my mom and the racist, xenophobic, FOX NEWS watching, senior citizen asshole she’s married to. It’s funny how he had plenty to say about the Muslims (you can’t trust them!) and “Black Friday” (what about a WHITE Friday?)—but when this Planned Parenthood shooting was on the news, what did he have to say...?

“Look at how much it’s snowing in Colorado...”

He told me that his doctor told him that he’d be dead in a year if he didn’t take these pills he’d been prescribed. I really hope he forgets to take those pills regularly...

Melissa Mathison Has a Posse


Melissa Marie Mathison
June 3, 1950 – November 4, 2015

The great screenwriter Melissa Mathison has a posse.

E.T. made me want to pursue the arts as a child. Everyone will remember her for that film, but I highly recommend her first produced feature: an adaptation she co-wrote, a forgotten gem called "THE BLACK STALLION".

She excelled at depicting the wonder and terror of a child's worldview.

She didn't get too many films produced. She's got one more that will come out posthumously, directed by her old collaborator Steven Spielberg. I hope he does right by her work.
