Some call it journalism.  I call it 'why I can't go within 500 feet of a school.'

Not to threadjack ... but the back story on Harmony Korine is completely insane ... here is his interview with David Letterman.

Except that film was actually pretty accurate in how it depicted youth sex and drug life, given that it was made and acted by really young kids plus Larry Clark who was basically one of the earliest photo-chroniclers of junkie life.  I liked that film, especially Chloe Sevigny and Rosario Dawson, talk about two standout debuts in one obscure film.

"They are all just transfixed by the technology"

Uh, no, they are all self-absorbed by themselves, and their sad need for acceptance and validation.

The only angle kids need to know is Pythagorean's theorem:

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

Why?  Because it's useful in Minecraft for locating the hidden, underground End portal.  It's not perfect, but it helps players conserve Eye of Enders by getting a rough range from two sides.

Because doing something or going somewhere to be fashionable never happened before selfies became a thing.

Funniest thing I saw in a stadium wasn't at a Diamondbacks game, but next door at a Suns game.  It was late in a losing season so the stadium was fairly empty.  A couple of what we're now calling 'thots' tried to make their way down to the seats behind the players' bench.  These two had really gone all-out with party-dresses, hair, makeup, even their shoes, which were causing problems on the removable sections of seating.  It's pretty obvous they were trying to get the attention of the men on the team.  But the team management had an ace up their sleeve, a middle-aged, gruff woman was security for this particular aisle, and she intercepted these two ladies, calling them all sorts of things and not letting them get within five rows of the bench.  And I don't think her vitriol was an act either, she was outright cruel in what she was calling them.

Some of the players turned to see, smiled and laughed, and then returned their attention to the court.  I expect this was a common occurrence for them and they clearly found it funny.

That film was well-shot and enjoyable to watch as a drama, but it was 2 hours of non-stop moral panic. I have no doubt that every scenario in the movie was pulled from real life, but the implication that it was happening everywhere, all at once, to everyone, is silly. We did not in fact all get AIDS in the 90s.

Well, that was a waste of time. He had a few decent interviews, and then he got caught going through Meryl Streeps purse... I don't know what I expected, but that was certainly anticlimactic.

I've seen more clips of Letterman recently than I ever did when he was the king of late night TV & I have to say, he's a real prick.
