Zach’s One Thing: Lucrecia Martel Film Masterclass

There are two living filmmakers who hold a deeper understanding of abstraction and manipulation of sound within cinema than anyone else.  One is David Lynch… the other is Lucrecia Martel.  If you’re interested in filmmaking, look no further than Martel as the perfect mentor who you can trust to illuminate the full potential of cinema and creativity.  

Hank’s One Thing: Advil

I had my second vaccine last week and it was, all told, not horrible. But also not easy. The recommendation that I had was to have Gatorade and Advil after. I have to say that Gatorade has gotten way worse than I remember. Advil on the other hand…

When I was growing up I remember always wanting to have Advil, probably because the commercials made them look like candy and let’s be honest, they look like a naked M&M. Now that I buy my own damn pain medicine, I’m shelling out for the OTC that’s got a tinge of sugar in what looks like a soft candy shell.
