Deep Thoughts

A couple of tiny observations in lieu of a real post:

A little-remarked phenomenon of our time is the ill-advised Netflix impulse rental. Typical trajectory for me: crushing on a striking actress on some TV show, then digging around on NF for something of hers that's R-rated. You can take it from there.

A fact about writing that just popped into my head today: cutting is pruning. A gardener removes weeds but also some perfectly fine flowers, so that the very best ones can be seen more clearly. This one belongs in the "Well, duh!" column.

Discuss amongst yourselves.

The first of those falls into the TMI category, for sure. Although it reinforces my theory of why so many of my friends became obsessed by movies in the sixties and seventies at the precise moment when all social inhibitions dropped.

As for pruning/cutting: take a look at your library shelves....
