While my Parker House rolls are proofing: since this may be the last T-giving that Twitter exists or is usable for anyone who isn't a blockchain bot, I wanted to say that if we are mutuals you are likely a person whose feed brings me knowledge/laughter/inspiration. I am thankful.
.@TaylorLorenz's interview with @dril not only leaves intact but intensifies the enigma that is @dril: washingtonpost.com/technology/202…
In what other place do you look at your surviving child in the parking lot of a Walgreens and say, “stay in the car just in case there’s a shooting” and then drive by the memorial that honors the one you lost to gun violence. In what other place.

Because of Netflix’s weird release strategy for Glass Onion, this is your only week to see it in theaters (which based on my experience is 🤌) before it disappears for almost a month & comes to streaming only on Dec. 23. If it’s in your town see it T-giving weekend w/ the family:twitter.com/thehighsign/st…V
When the hotel-room TV has motion smoothing that can't be turned off
At the sound check for tonight's showing of Keaton's One Week & Go West at the historic Paramount theater in Seattle, I got to visit the projection booth & the projectionist gave me an old 35mm film reel w/ film still in it! Tix to tonight's show here: stgpresents.org/calendar/13574…
Glass Onion, Rian Johnson's sort-of sequel to his smash-hit 2019 whodunit Knives Out, isn't quite as satisfying as the original, but it demonstrates its writer-director's customary keen attunement to the audience's pleasure centers. My review: slate.com/culture/2022/1…
A child's toy dating to 18,000 BCE, found in southern France. A token on string, spinning it makes it look like the animal is running.

Great premise for a podcast: Pick a year from film history & talk about 5 of your favorite/most important movies from that year. I went with 1927, the year of many of silent cinema’s greatest swan songs. 🦢 �twitter.com/jasondashbaile…dp
I created a profile on this new Twitter-style platform still in beta: post.news/dab6d739-600b-… Not doing anything with it yet, but if you are there you can ping me, & if you want to get on the waiting list to sign up (it took less than 24 hours), go here: post.news/?r=mU0VS

I approve of this use of a dying social-media platform ✔️💙twitter.com/r0bp0well/stat…x
At the suggestion of @selfstyledsiren via @karaswisher, put my email on the waitlist for a Twitter-like platform being created by @noam of Waze. post.news/?r=mU0VS I don't see myself trying Mastodon. They lost me at "toots" (saying "tweets" all these years was bad enough).
Stay gold, Ponyboy (only here would you get to say that to actual S.E. Hinton) <3 twitter.com/se4realhinton/…
He got what he wanted--they went hardcore twitter.com/JoshuaPHilll/s…
This was the best convo--I got to choose my top five movies from 1927, one of the most pivotal years in film history, & get way into them w/ @jasondashbailey and @brainwashedlib. Murnau! Keaton! Lang! Borzage! Lon Chaney as a carnival freak! Subscribe now & listen this Sunday. twitter.com/jasondashbaile…
Twitter sitch rn has a very Thanos-finger-snap feel to it
Looks like this place really may vanish any day now, so once more before we start eyeing the lifeboats: whatever platform I join in the future, I will use the name @thehighsign so those want to can find me. I loved you all (except for the ones who were jerks on here). Excelsior! twitter.com/ZoeSchiffer/st…

The Fabelmans, Steven Spielberg's coming-of-age tale about his parents' divorce & his self-discovery as a filmmaker, isn't a cozy cinephilic nostalgia trip but something unexpectedly pricklier, sadder & smarter. slate.com/culture/2022/1…
If I had to read the Mike Pence memoir I think I would transform into a bat & fly straight into a volcano, but @jenszalai's review of it is deliciously savage: nytimes.com/2022/11/14/boo…

El*n & his cult's longtime representation of his business & tech genius vs. his now-apparent actual intellect
Wakanda Forever is a gajillion-dollar comic-book blockbuster about something as complex and interior as the act of female mourning. My review: slate.com/culture/2022/1…
Lively @SlateCultFest this week: we snort-laughed our way thru a discussion of the Weird Al biopic, had on @matt_levine to help unpack his Bloomberg mega-explainer on how crypto works, & paid tribute to the perfection that was three seasons of Derry Girls. slate.com/podcasts/cultu…
I have a new policy vis-a-vis post-El*n Twitter: instead of fretting about when or whether to leave, going to hang tight & try to outlast him. No way this level of chaos is sustainable. twitter.com/MattGertz/stat…

Rarely screened in its entirety, Jean-Luc Godard’s magisterial Histoire(s) du cinéma is essential viewing for anyone who loves the movies and for anyone who loves getting caught up in a dense and wondrous thicket of text, sound, and image. Dec 1-23 mo.ma/3G8WUW6

Why is it so hard to say "the crackdown on abortion rights, the weaponization of bigotry & the spreading of election misinformation are unpopular Republican positions & Americans voted against them en masse because they are bad ideas?" Occam's Razor still works most of the time. twitter.com/froomkin/statu…
I told my publisher to remove my Twitter handle from the author bio in the upcoming paperback of my book, since we have no idea whether Twitter will exist/be a place anyone wants to be by Feb. 2023. This makes me sad. Why can't writers have some social media presence, as a treat?

Not all the votes are in, but it's heartening that in referendum after referendum involving abortion & reproductive rights, including in Kentucky & Montana, people went to the polls & said "yeah, you won't be taking that right away from us, thanks a bunch" nytimes.com/interactive/20…
