2018 is turning out to be a pretty good year for films. Although the ones I most recently really liked were actually released in 2017 and are just now getting here: Let the Sunshine In and First Reformed (reviews to follow). After all, Louisville is just a lonely outpost at the edge of civilization. The British have a saying about being posted to such a station: Never drink before dark, but never go to bed quite sober either. Good advice.
For the Holiday Season
Here’s looking at you kid.
Blessed be he whose blood and judgement is so well commingled that he is not a pipe for fortune’s fingers to play what stop she pleases.
May the devil cut off the toes of our foes that we may know them by their limping.
Here’s to plain speaking and clear understanding.
He who has dined with his friends but once knows what it’s like to be Caesar!
To the constitution of the United States and confusion to its enemies.
Here’s to wives and girl friends. May they never meet!
She was only a grave digger’s daughter but you should have seen her under the sod.
May you be in Heaven fifteen minutes before the devil knows you are dead.
Cheers! Down the hatch mate!
