Really, 2016? You had to take Elie Wiesel too? Would you like to raid my jewelry and kick me in the shins while you’re at it? You know what, we’re not playing this game anymore. Happy thoughts. Here’s a picture of some fireworks.
It’s Independence Day here in the U.S. on Monday. Surprise, surprise, I’ll be posting (because not everyone has the day off, and not everyone is American). With the current state of world affairs, who knows where we’ll all be this time next year. To all of my friends in the U.K. that are still reeling from the Brexit vote, I offer this: don’t you worry, guys. In four short months, the U.S. will totally take the heat off you. So in the spirit of up and down, we’re going all over the place this week. We’ll start off with one of my favorite guilty pleasures: The Great Outdoors (because, you know, tis the season for cookouts and outdoorsy stuff). On Wednesday, we’re going to cover one of the few remakes I actually like: The Evil Dead. I’m going to finish out the week with a recommendation for Love In the Time of Monsters, which is a thing of beauty.
On a closing note… if you’re out partying this weekend, please be safe. Don’t cause any accidents, and I hope you’re not part of any accidents. Just… be good to each other. All of this is short, even when it feels long. Take some time to find something pretty this weekend, and be good, humans.
