Going to the movies and writing are my two favorite pastimes. Watching TV is up there, too. I also love sitting someplace for hours having a long conversation. Preferably Europe.
Interests: comedy, movies, writing, books, singing, performing

Nomi, thank you so much for sharing your thoughts here. I totally agree with you about Rectify. Compared to what we are normally shown on television, it's way more realistic to show a character be crippled by such a devastating life event.

...It's been awhile. I think it's time to break this awkward silence. You didn't do anything wrong, Internet, so I hope you didn't blame yourself for my leaving. It was all grad school's fault. Well, grad school's and mine. I deserve a good share of the blame here. Look, I'm... Continue reading

The Netflix Conundrum is one that's familiar to any cinephile or TV fanatic with access to the online service: there are so many choices that it makes it hard to pick anything at all. Personally, I tend to address this... Continue reading
