I recently rewatched Reality Bites for the first time in many years and WOW do I have very different feelings about it now. Since today is the 25th anniversary of its release, let’s feel old and take a walk down movie memory lane together.Read More
This year has really zipped by, but before it goes away completely, I like taking time to reflect on all the good things. Much like 2017, 2018 has also been a real mixed bag politically, culturally, and environmentally.
