Fair.


I agree with all this. Any potential disagreement is about equating inaccessibility or obscurity with quality (and, of course, the inverse).

Re: Cinematic Heritage / True Works of Art

Yeah, it's funny how often great works of art were seen as commercial and disposable in their own time. Dumas stretched his novels out because he was paid by the word, for crying out loud. The modern...

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2022 - The Season

What a weird season. First I loved my team, felt like one of the best two or three teams. Then after Javonte I thought "well, still pretty good but maybe like the 5th best team." Then Kupp goes down...

Quoting for truth.

If you forget a movie, you forgot one thing.
