The Zone of Interest most certainly is. I can't stop thinking about it.
Is it streaming anywhere? Last I checked, both ZoI and American Fiction were only in theaters.

I have been called many things, but "trendy" has never been one of them.

My tinnitus hits a nasty note during the key change toward the end of the song "Penny Lane." It's exactly the same tone (but an octave or so lower) and it just kinda cuts right through my head for a few beats. Ugh.

I love that show. And the movie that preceded it.

I should have guessed what this meant, knowing where you herald from. But sadly, I had to Google it.

I might have more of them than the usual, though. I've got pretty big feet, for one, a little on the wide side, for another. And one ankle is slightly (but noticeably, when wearing shoes) bigger than the other.
Definitely opt for wide widths then. It makes a difference. In some brands I have to get the W or they'll feel too tight. And I don't really have wide feet, per se.

Your uncle, BTW, has flat feet. Like, FLAT feet. No arch whatsoever. He's had trouble getting shoes that are comfortable.

Meh. I was not thrilled about things like fingerprint ID for phones, so this doesn't surprise me.

Also, I know Yoda USED to like Billy Joel... because I went to a Billy Joel concert when I was about six months pregnant with him, and he be-bopped all over the place in utero throughout the whole concert.

I'm gonna scout out recordings of those two online. Better than watching the entire show, I'm sure.
