Trying to find a secure email client is easier said than done these days. Most of the new services seem to require you go through their servers, I assume to mine data. And so, Thunderbird remains my weapon of choice.
Finally saw Miller’s Crossing last night. What a movie! I also learned it was based on a Dashiell Hammett book – the same that inspired Kurosawa‘s Yojimbo, which incidentally means that Last Man Standing is, in fact, the second prohibition-era movie based on the same material.
Top o’ the world, ma!
My brief, yet considered review of Frozen II: I enjoyed it.
Each Christmas I’m reminded how lousy I am at gift wrapping, despite having worked in retail in my younger days. Embarrassed and infuriating, though I suppose the customers had bigger reason to complain.
Finally installed in the new house. This kids have been antsy for a few days, but are finding their feet. Today they didn’t wake up before 8, and we’ve slathered every surface in Christmas lights. I feel like I can breathe easy (well, easier) again.
Based on Prometheus and Star Trek: Into Darkness, I instantly dismissed Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen sequel when I first read about it, but wow, is it ever good.
the Mountain Goats on fine form at Rockefeller Music Hall in Oslo tonight.
Just got back from Joker, and still unsure of how I feel about it. Initial thought: it’s to 1970’s grit what Sin City was to noir.
