...and by "review" I mean "trailer". Sorry, folks.

OK,

Mustache: weak
Ketchup gag: weak
Lettuce gag: nice
Cat gag: I laughed
"Suzanne Collins" appearing in a scene that looks rather like it was inspired by Brian De Palma's Dressed to Kill gag: I was left speechless, in a somewhat disturbed way.

I wonder what grade he got?

THANK YOU!! Terrific kid! (Great reader, too!)

I laughed all the way through both. Count me as a Max S.K. fan.*

Contrast this with the "fabulous fierceness" we recently witnessed here on the blue. Supervised vs non supervised YouTube usage. Perhaps not fair to compare the two but I know which videos make me more comfortable. Both involve intelligent young people expressing themselves to the world.

oh god if I had this available to me as an option in school I would've just launched into 20 min rants about A Separate Piece at the drop of a hat.

I loved those books, but now I can see them in a whole new, disturbing light. I hope he does one for Goliath as well.

Well, that got me to actually watch the second video. Worth it.
