Wednesday Stills with John Colver
2020 gave me the opportunity I've been yearning for to dedicate months of my time to google image search. That and watching Kes and telling people to watch Kes. Oh and I really like sports.

What have you been doing to yourself
This weekend I watched Pretend It's a City, Martin Scorsese's Netflix docuseries about New York City writer Fran Lebowitz. Unfortunately, it's not great. Marty is too present, and the episodic format feels bloated. Fran, a bonafide legend, is a better interview than a documentary subject. So skip the doc, light a cig, and read her conversation with Rachel Tashjian over at GQ. It’s more fun.

Wednesday Stills with Evan Thomas
Blaze Foley’s ultra-somber banger “Clay Pigeons” played on shuffle while I compiled these images. They mostly evoke the isolation and despair of 2020 with flickers of levity and friendship around the edges. This lyric says it best: “Sing a song with a friend, change the shape that I’m in, and get back in the game and start playin’ again.”
