Biden Newsom 2024
guess i sort of knew this was coming. think i recall speculation about disney spinning off espn and selling it to a sportbook but for now we get espnbet.
rewatched the parallax view last night just in time for kissingers kiss off. seemed appropriate. extra legal assassinations were definitely part of his realpolitik bag. im sure there were any number of plotholes but the one that jumped out at me was the fact that beattys character was part of a group that may or may not have been targeted for assassination yet he attempts to infiltrate the organization. i realize it was pre-internet but they seemed pretty organized. there must have been a folder with his picture in it at the very least yet he made no effort to alter his appearance, of course, because he is warren beatty and that sells tickets, but i though that was kind of absurd even if the world supposed he was already dead.
so the movie leaves you wanting but i suppose that is the point. no easy answers just post watergate/kennedy conspiracy deep state unease.
love that theres a bot on reddit that if you mention sex panther from anchorman it will automatically post the quote in this case it was for a vintage 70s ad for a cologne called mandate in which the scene gives off a distinct roofie vibe hence the allusion. admittedly the scened being mentioned multiple times made me sad for the state of discourse but clearly i am part of the problem.

sure she must be familiar to y'all but before my time and then married a famous record producer so faded into relative obscurity. kids are both musicians of some renown.
Visited a friend yesterday and Albert Brooks briefly came up in conversation. I did no searching but my phone was on and in my pocket, today my youtube feed is full of Albert Brooks clips. We discussed Tom Noonan at length but nada from the spybots. Noonan has the greater output but Brooks has the awards.

anybody know this film?
Directed by Christian Petzold • 2023 • Germany
Starring Thomas Schubert, Paula Beer, Langston Uibel
While vacationing by the Baltic Sea, writer Leon (Thomas Schubert) and photographer Felix (Langston Uibel) are surprised to encounter Nadja (Paula Beer), a mysterious young woman staying as a guest at Felix’s family’s holiday home. Nadja soon distracts Leon from finishing his latest novel, not only because of her passionate liaison with lifeguard Devid (Enno Trebs) but also because her brutal honesty forces Leon to confront his artistic inadequacies. As Nadja and Leon grow closer, an encroaching forest fire threatens the group and pushes the writer to discover whether he can truly care for anything beyond himself. Christian Petzold’s acclaimed latest was the winner of the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at the 2023 Berlin International Film Festival.
