I hate it when the dog eats the cheese. You can blame the dog, but it's really your own damn fault for leaving it "within range." Dogs will be dogs. Yesterday, this pup consumed an entire 4 x 3 block of Mammoth Cheddar that was at optimal temperature. I had one slice. I cherish that brief moment. All too fleeting.

CAUTION:Don't let the Helmet of Cinematic Popularity shield you from the following 3 movies.
DOWN IN THE VALLEY- A completely original yet familiar story that leaves you, like 2 of it's characters, steeped in both sweetness and horror, unsure of which to embrace.
THE DEVIL AND DANIEL JOHNSTON- Horror and sweetness, non-fiction style. This documentary of artist Daniel Johnston serves both up in steaming heaps.
THE PUFFY CHAIR-Brothers Mark and Jay Duplass and a stellar cast of actors you've probably never seen craft a deceptively simple story that for me either got so intense or so infuriating at points that I paused and walked away a few times. DVD's a beautiful thing. So's this movie. Check it out.
