Young Frances Tiafoe Wins Maiden Title

What a great bl**dy series of wins for young #Tiafoe: #DelPo, #HyeonChung, #Shapovalov, #DelrayBeach (ie the whole d*mn thing!). Just the shot in the arm #tennis could use in the post-#Federer world (that hopefully is quite a ways away!). #ATP

Ester Ledecka Double-Gold / US Curling Gold

So, I know nothing about parallel giant slalom #snowboarding or Super-G #alpineskiing but that #EsterLedecka double's gotta be up in #CarlLewis-territory, right? PS. I guess we're all #TeamShuster now! #miracurl #curling #PyeongChang2018 #Olympics

The Party

#TheParty: It's good to have the great #SallyPotter back, eh? Entertaining screwball-existential-tragicomedy with a fun little #Shyamalan-esque(?!) twist ending. *Superb* cast - Murphy & KST great, but Clarkson steals the show with her hysterically brittle tartness.

Federer Wins ABN Amro Title to Consolidate No. 1 Ranking

This is getting ridiculous! #GOAT-dream still going strong as #Federer beats (a hurt?๐Ÿ˜ฉ) #BabyFed (#Dimitrov) to win Title 97. I don't wanna jinx it but...nah, we'll cross that bridge (if?) when we come to it.  #RF97! #abnamrowtt #ATP

Newly-Minted No. 1 Federer Gets Tough Win

Uh-oh...#Federer not quite in #GOAT-form vs #Seppi, but I'm guessing he wasn't gonna get beat again. Next up: shotmaking dream vs #BabyFed. PS. Poor #Goffin, kid always battles hard, but bad luck again. #abnamrowtt

Black Panther

#BlackPanther: OMBG! (2nd-)Best (#MCU) Movie, Ever(Tied)! Has anyone had a better young 
-director career-start (this side of #Spielberg) than #RyanCoogler?! Also, M(B)J๐Ÿ™€! PS It'd be a pity to confine incredible who's-who of AfAm acting royalty to just one film in the MCU, no?๐Ÿค—

Nathan Chen Bounces Back / Ledecka Shocks the Word

I know nothing about #figureskating but that the poor kid #NathanChen skated his heart out. Man, that #Yuzuru is a messianic figure, huh?! PS #ShomaUno!

I know nothing about #SuperG but from 26/32 to Gold in a sport you don't normally play?! #Ledecka!๐Ÿ‘

#Olympics #PyeongChang2018

Federer Quest for No. 1: The Quest is Complete!!!!

Un-bl**dy-believable! Apparently, the (Old) #GOAT's still got it! #Federer comes through tough match vs #Haase to become the oldest No.1! A record that will stand...until #Serena gets back & #Rafa breaks it in 5 yrs. Until then, let's just marvel! #peRFect! #RF!

Loveless (Nelyubov)

#Loveless: Whew! Quite possibly the best movie of the year, heck of *any* year! Heart/gut/soul-wrenching. Brilliant stuff from the DP, composer, & director Zvyagnitsev. Raw, lived-in perfs by entire cast, esp the two leads. And the kid Novikov completely breaks your heart! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Federer Quest for No. 1: Second Match Win

Whew! #Federer needed every bit of that #GOAT magic to get by always-plucky #Kohlschreiber! He'll need more of that against the stylish #Haase. Man this Quest for No. 1 sure is nerve-racking! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐ŸŽพ #abnamrowtt

Liverpool Dazzles in First Leg vs Porto

Mo' #Mane No Problems, eh? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Esp when you have #MoSalah & #Firmino as your backing band. #LFC *hammers* #Porto. Hopefully that bodes well for #Klopp's boys in the #UCL. #Liverpool

Federer Quest for No. 1: First Match Win

Looks like the old #GOAT's still got it. Quick win today for #Federer. He'll need all that & more against tricky #Kohlschreiber. The Quest for No. 1 isn't gonna be easy! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฏ#abnamrowtt

India Wins ODI Series vs South Africa

What a tremendous win for #IND! Give #Virat credit for marshaling his boys after (another Away) Test series disappointment. PS. Not sure what his Test future is but ltd-overs #Shikhar is the most fun! ๐Ÿ’ช ๐Ÿ #SAvIND

Chloe Kim (& Red Gerard) Win(s) Gold

My goodness! #ChloeKim - take a bl**dy bow. Imagine being 17 and having the world in the palm of your hand!

#Torrance Power


PS. #RedGerard - another 17yo with the world etc. etc. etc.! 


Kids these days...

RIP Johann Johannsson

RIP #JohannJohannsson. Gone way too young. Could do every genre, and make every score uniquely memorable. Huge impact that will be felt for a long time to come. Seriously, that #Sicario motif has already been ripped off more times than I can count. Very sad and shocking. Sigh ๐Ÿ˜ž

The Jordan Clarkson Cavaliers Era Begins ... as the D-Wade “Era” Sunsets

The insufferable #DannyAinge somewhere in his Bond-villain cave cackling at the dissolution of the #Cavs...if not for #JordanClarkson! ๐Ÿ‘


PS. Not quite ride-or-die for #DWade & #LeBron… ๐Ÿ˜ญ... Wait, if Wade is going back to the #Heat does that mean LBJ can't be far behind?!๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

India’s Inspirational Luger

Great bl**dy article about Manali boy #ShivaKeshavan (@100thofasec) - very inspiring (esp for those of us watching #Olympics from our couch whinging about stuff!)! #RedDemon #PyeongChang2018

Darkest Hour

#DarkestHour: AKA #GaryOldman's Feature-Length #Oscar Reel! Our long (inter)national nightmare is over, (future Sir) Gary is *definitely* winning (so...much...Acting!). And, boy, will Tsuji deserve his own...the makeup  ๐Ÿ‘! PS. KST's nom - wha happened?! PPS. ✌️

The Insult

#TheInsult: Hoo boy! Doueiri mashes up Farhadi & Perry Mason and turns the whole thing up to 11! Tense, entertaining, darkly humourous, sad, attention-grabbing movie that touches *all* the nerves. Superb crafstmanship & perfs, esp the haunting El Basha (making his film debut?!๐Ÿ‘)

RIP John Mahoney

RIP #JohnMahoney. He was great on #Frasier… & I'm so many other things. Lucky to have seen him on stage once, he was fantastic. Even luckier to have met him in person once, couldn't have been nicer. So good in Say Anything, Barton Fink, Moonstruck, Eight Men Out, etc. etc. etc.

Den of Thieves

#DenOfThieves: A Heat-Meets-Fast-Five-Meets-[Spoiler Alert!] B-Movie really is the best kind of B-Movie, no? ๐Ÿ˜Š Surprisingly awesome actioner that's so full of testosterone I became manlier just watching it! Butler, Pornstache, Cube's kid, Gudegast -  ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘Š๐ŸŽฅ๐Ÿ‘!

Antonio Brown Robbed of NFL Offensive Player of the Year

Aw, c'mon man! Look, #ToddGurley's great...but #AB completely deserved #OPOY! ๐Ÿคจ Once again, #NFL voters showing a #BBWA-esque lack of imagination. PS. Between TG, #AaronDonald & #SeanMcVay is it, uh, time to jump on the #Rams bandwagon?! ๐Ÿ˜ #AntonioBrown

Terrell Owens (Finally) Gets into NFL HOF

You Know You're Too Old When: #TO ('bout d*mn time!), #Moss, #Dawkins enter #NFL #HOF. Look, I know #Urlacher was a media darling, but no way he deserves to get into #Canton before #HinesWard & #AlanFaneca! #Steelers #HereWeGo #TerrellOwens

On Body and Soul

#OnBodyAndSoul: You know, your usual Hungarian office-set-rom-sad-funny-existential-magic-realism-societal-allegory(metaphor? parable?)-laugh-through-your-tears-com! Let director Enyedi take you on a *ride*. Morcsanyi, DP, Sound Design - great. Borbely is simply exceptional!

Mo Salah Quickest Liverpool Player to 20 Goals

You cannot contain #MoSalah… you can only pay an absurdly high transfer/buyout fee & send him packing to #RealMadrid/#Barca/#PSG/#MUFC(!)… ๐Ÿ˜‰

PS. Wait, Defense wins championships, that works in futbol too, not just, ya know, American Football?! ๐Ÿค”

Rahul Dravid Manages India to Under-19 Cricket World Cup

Finally, #RahulDravid has his #CWC! So maybe this doesn't make up for that ridiculous 2011 snub, but congrats to him & #IND on winning #U19CWC. Better days are ahead for that pesky Away Test W-L record? ๐Ÿ˜ PS. #Dravid, man, dictionary definition of selfless service…

A Fantastic Woman

#AFantasticWoman: Lovely, delicate, lush, heartbreaking/life-affirming, Almodovar-esque film from young Lelio. Vega is simply amazing - one of the year's best lead actress perfs. DP Echazarreta & composer Herbert - ๐Ÿ‘! Somewhere, Papa Pedro is beaming with pride!
