Stepford Wife Street

Just watched “Altman.” A surprisingly good documentary about Robert Altman on Hulu, where I spend most of my life watching late night talk shows to pass my 50s.

And I realized, when it was over and had affected me like a good film will, that I live on a Stepford Wife Street, in a Tornado Alley (and not just metaphorically), in a life I don’t remember heading toward, and I don’t remember who I am. But it made me want to be reminded.



An old Adam Scott movie

Watched “Passenger Side,” a “staff pick” on Hulu. It’s an old indie Adam Scott (“Parks and Rec”) movie.
It has a very pre-app/social network/cell phone feel. I didn’t realize how much I miss the quiet and slowness of human stillness and the non-electronic movement of bodies and information.
