Kareem Hunt Will Probably End Up With the Patriots, Right?

What's the over/under on how quickly those *awful* #Patriots pick up the awful #KareemHunt?! 


Coupled with that awful #Steelers loss, what's the over/under on the number of #SuperBowl's #Belichick is winnning this year?!

Brilliant bite-the-hand-that-feeds subversion of its corporate animation overlords…or brilliant pat-the-head-that-feeds validation masquerading as subversion? Why, yes! 

Those "ironic" Princess t-shirts πŸ‘ Spamley and Gord🀣! It's JCR's movie world nowπŸ‘

Croatia Wins 2018 Davis Cup

PS Kudos to #CRO on avenging #WorldCup loss & beating #FRA to win #DavisCup. Kudos to #Cilic on his redemption. FRA's Golden Generation already got theirs, so win-win all around


PPS Kudos to #USA for fighting the good #FedCup fight. Plucky non-household-names at least showed up!

RIP Nicolas Roeg

RIP #NicolasRoeg


One of our most singular independent filmmakers, practically defined an era. His run of 1970s movies, my goodness, *very* few have ever come anywhere close to equaling it. Mesmerizing, off-kilter films that you can't shake once they dig their hooks into you.

RIP Bernardo Bertolucci

RIP #BernardoBertolucci


One of *the* all-time greats. I remember being awed by the mere clips & stills of his films growing up. Epic filmmaker with lyrical visuals who never lost sight of the characters at the heart of it all. I'll let experts like Ty Burr handle Last Tango…

Richard Jefferson Retires

You Know You're Too Old When: #RichardJefferson Retires. Been a fan from way back when, before his hilarious-podcasting/helping-#LeBron(er, I mean #Cavs)-win-a-championship days, when he was a fun, lean-mean-dunkin'-machine superstar. Something tells me his Act II will be πŸ˜„πŸ‘

Steelers’ Devastating Loss to Broncos

You live by the #BigBen, but sometimes you die by the... well, ya know😰


Devastating loss for the #Steelers bcuz it essentially hands the awful #Patriots homefield advantage in the playoffs🀯


PS. On the bright side #JuJu & #Villanueva+#Boswell punched their #ProBowl tickets πŸ₯³

Widows

#Widows


OMBG! One of the very best 2018 movies! Stunningly realised by McQueen & Flynn. HOF-worthy lineup in front of & behind camera! Cast is bonkers, esp Kaluuya, Farrell, Davis, & a star-making Debicki. Co-MVP to legendary casting director Maisler & DP Bobbitt (35mm!) πŸŽ₯🎞πŸ’ͺ

Greatest Monday Night Football, Ever!

Bl**dy h*ll! I can't believe what I just saw!!! Could be the thing that turns it all around for the #NFL!


#Goff v #Mahomes - can't wait for the rematch ... (just not in the #SuperBowl... we need the #Steelers to make it πŸ˜‡)

Young Zverev Shocks the (Tennis) World to Win 2018 ATP Tour Finals!

Wait, wha?! A 21yo *kid* just straight-setted back-to-back #GOAT's to win #ATPFinals?! 


Well bl**dy done #Zverev! To take out #Federer & #Djokovic, & bounce back from all that booing 🎾✊


PS. Congrats to #JackSock (& #MikeBryan😁). What a season he had! So, about next year...πŸ€—

Steelers Make Miraculous Comeback Over Jaguars!

You live by the #BigBen, you die by the...well, ya know 😊 Today, the #Steelers lived!😬

Man, that was the worst and best of the #Tomlin times, huh?!

Whatagreat win over the (always?)pesky #Jaguars.


Of course, TBH near gave up hope...not with #AB on her fantasy teamπŸ˜‚

RIP William Goldman

RIP #WilliamGoldman


One of *the* greatest screenwriters. Growing up I had no idea he'd written all those movies my parents always talked about.


The breadth of his achievements is astounding. An essential part of cinema history, won't see his likes again.

Federer Loses Tight Match to Zverev 2018 ATP Finals

Sigh... the #GOAT is, well not exactly dead but the end is certainly nigh... long live the #Djoker 😭


#Federer fights hard but comes up *just* short vs #Zverev. #RF100 will have to wait another day.


PS. Yo #tennis fans, don't boo Sascha, the poor kid's sensitive.

At Eternity's Gate

#AtEternitysGate


Visually stunning, extremely affecting tone-poem (ie a Schnabel). DP Delhomme deserves all the #Oscars he can get ! Lovely work by the cast, esp Friend & Isaac, but my goodness is this the Dafoe Show from beginning to the very end, he's simply brilliant!πŸŽ¨πŸ–ΌπŸ‘πŸ‘

Agnieszka RadwaΕ„ska Retires

You Know You're Too Old When: #AgnieszkaRadwanska Retires (at 29?!😱)


Always enjoyed her singular brand of thinking-woman's #tennis, esp in this age of one-dimensional baseline bashing. 


PS. Look at this slicin'-dancin' *epic* (101 net pts!!πŸ₯ŽπŸ™Œ):

Suspiria (2018)

#Suspiria (2018)


I don't always watch horror films, but when I do it's a Guadagnino! Bl**dy h*ll (literally?)! I need a PhD in 13 different fields to understand what seared my eyeballs for many terrifying nights to come! Yikes!


PS. #TildaSwinton for Best Supporting What-Now?!πŸ˜…

RIP Stan Lee

RIP #StanLee


A *major* portion of my childhood and adulthood - as I suspect he was for millions. 


I'll let the experts analyse his legacy... all I'll say is he made our own superhero dreams come "true" and our minds wonder at the #marvel of it all.


#Excelsior!

RIP Douglas Rain

RIP #DouglasRain. Will go down in cinema history of one the greatest and most unforgettable voices of all time: #HAL9000

Federer Comes Up Agonizingly Short Against Djokovic (...again?!😐πŸ˜ͺ)

There's still some fight in the "old" #GOAT yet!!! πŸ‘πŸ’ͺπŸ₯Ž


Yeah, #Federer's strange, uncharacteristic, recent death-moment yips reared their head at the worst possible time, but if anyone has a shot at irresistible-force*+*immovable-object #Djokovic it's him!


#ATPFinals

Steelers Thrash the Panthers

Hey, I'm always down for a well-that-escalated-quickly #Steelers win (tho' I do feel badly for #Cam's #Panthers).


Hope #VanceMcDonald gets that wristband 🀣


PS. TBH played #McCaffrey while I kept #BigBen on the bench. 😱


PPS. #RooseveltNix πŸ‘✊πŸ’ͺ🏈

First Man

#FirstMan


Yup, kid Chazelle's gone and made one of *the* best movies of 2018! Pensive, melancholy meditation on loss, grief & the cost of achievement. Incredible work by cast, prod designer(!), composer, screenwriter, nerve-*racking* sound designer, & esp Gosling. Hello #Oscars!



04 November 2018

Steelers Get Massive Win Over Ravens in Baltimore

Phew! Good, tough, gutty (statement, even) win for #JamesConner, er #Steelers(πŸ€—), esp considering they were playing the awful #Ravens & those awful refs!


Let's hope they keep this "turnaround" going!

Federer Reaches Semis 2018 Paris Masters

Great #GOAT-like win for #Federer over (always-)plucky #Nishikori. Up next: #Djokovic (back to No. 1 already?! Well, that escalated quickly!)!


PS. Belated kudos on winning Basel and getting to #RF99...the dream for #RF100 stays alive πŸ₯³
