Hiccups and Hokum

Had a little bit of a web config hiccup, so the page was mysteriously absent over the weekend. Whoops. Not that there was anything new, folks.

And speaking of nothing new, I tried to watch the first part ofEmpire Falls, the two-parter on HBO this weekend. And, God it was awful.

It was stilted. It played out like a frikkin’ cliche from the first minute. Ed Harris was wooden. Paul Newman was interesting, but generally over the top. There was no subtlety or grace. And it. just. got. worse. every. minute.

Plus, all we need is another story about a heart-of-gold damaged goods type guy trying to escape a dying New England town. Christ.
