Society Of The Spectacle by Guy Debord which I'm so far finding to be terrifyingly relevant

I took an art history course on 1968 and it started off with Guy Debord.  That entire era is incredibly relevant to what is developing today.

Wind River is really disappointing.  It is 106 minutes long, but feels like 3 hours.  The casting is really bad. The acting is fairly bad. There are scenes that feel heavily like foreshadowing, but never develop into anything. The cinematography is ok, but it makes the environment they are in seem small, not expansive.

I'm still reading Science and Human Behavior. About half way through. It's good review. Some ways Skinner talks about things appear dated, even if the general concepts still hold.
I gave up onA Derrida Reader: Between the Blinds. Maybe someday.

I’m watching a movie with Vince Vaughn called Brawl in Cell Block 99 and I’m impressed with his performance so far. It’s a decent enough movie, though unoriginal. I never thought I’d find Vince Vaughn intimidating but he does a good job. It was pretty over the top but it was good for what it is.

A really shitty movie we watched this past weekend was 31 which is a Rob Zombie movie. I have no idea why I ever liked his movies. Not a likable character in the whole movie and it was torture porn with a loose outline of a bad plot.

We tried to watch The Accountant last night but we got bored and turned it off. We may try to watch the rest some other night. I think Affleck was a bad choice for the lead character

You're trying to tell me you didn't find it riveting when Rooney Mara ate pie for ten minutes while Casey Affleck stood over her in a white sheet?!
Well that part had me sitting on the edge of my seat as did the several scenes of sheeted younger Affleck staring out of the window for elongated periods of time

I watched A Ghost Story with my wife this past weekend. They should sell the movie at CVS and Walgreens in the sleep aid section because I could not stay awake no matter how hard I tried. There was just something about the movie that made me want to sleep. My wife was able to stay awake and she said she liked it. I think she had her moments of wanting to fall asleep too.

Isn't it kind f weird how the stuff about Chris came out right before this started happening on a huge scale? I feel like it shows how movements are kind of inevitable or something...like growing out of the wave of society and not spurred by one individual. I don't know

Yeah, I was thinking about that too.  Just shows that punks are always ahead of the times.  For better or worse, I think a lot of millennial feminism and language around safe space, etc was probably hugely  influenced by punk/diy culture.  I mean in the mid-late 2000s we were using those concepts and terms way before they became pretty mainstream.
