I took the trash out this morning, on account of it being trash day, and it felt like my lungs were filling with a hard frost. Sweet Maria! It’s currently 1, so at least it’s starting to warm up. Last night as I was driving home from work my car told me it was -4, and that’s simply unnecessary. The low was supposed to be -7. Not sure if it made it, but what does it matter, once it gets down that low? After you pass the full scrotal eradication threshold a few degrees in either direction don’t mean much. Oh well. It’s supposed to be 55 on Tuesday, and people will be wearing shorts and flip-flops by then. And Halfy J. Halfington will probably be out there mowing his lawn next door.
Speaking of frozen, did you ever see a movie called Frozen? No, not the cartoon or whatever the hell that thing is. I’m talking about some obscure low-budget film from 2010 about three people stuck on a ski lift. It’s great! They go out on the lift for one more downhill run before the resort closes for the week, and are forgotten (due to a series of improbable events), and left hanging, literally. They close the whole place up, turn off the lights, and everybody goes home. Except for the three unfortunates sitting in an elevated chair in the woods.
Oh, it’s not technically a great movie. I mean, this is not Casablanca we’re talking about. But it’s entertaining, suspenseful, and extremely memorable. I find myself thinking about it on a semi-regular basis, and that’s a sign they succeeded on some level, right? There are plenty of critically acclaimed movies I’ve forgotten five minutes after The End. Indeed, this thing popped into my mind again today as I was rolling those trash bins to the curb. “Shit! I’m going to end up like that one asshole in Frozen,” I muttered to myself. And I know of no other human being who’s seen it, or even knows about it.
For a Question, I’d like to know your favorite really fucking cold movies. Which ones pop into your mind when you think of a cold setting? The good ones make you almost feel the cold while you’re watching. So, please tell us what you’ve got on this subject.
And I’m going to call it a day here. Work awaits, and that’s enough said about that subject.
I posted a new podcast episode for patrons, right here. I’m pretty happy with this one. I’m not always happy. In fact, I’m usually not. But I’m reasonably pleased with this edition. Here’s your summary:
In this one, I tell you about a recent trip to Sam’s Club where I applied for a credit card, got two giant blankets for free, had a lot of pizza, and was aggravated nearly the entire time. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for listening, and thanks for the support!
I hope you guys have a fantastic weekend.
I’ll be back on Monday.
