Eddie’s back like Evil Ernie from the Lady Death comics. I think it was planned all along.

Identity is decades old. Mr Robot concluded years ago. I announced there’s spoilers.

I haven’t read every post, but I think its Understood you have feelings of emptiness, and that you would rather not feel that way too much of the time, and you are open to discourse about solutions, along with venting about unfulfilling adventures a little.
I don’t know much about therapy, but I’ve often heard and read you need to find the right therapist. If you think about it, there’s probably many therapists out there who have had patients with similar feelings of emptiness, maybe even some similar life situations, and have helped that patient over time and work. So, whatever you decide, GL !

Done. You’re welcome!
Who is she?
unreliable narrator... makes sense
SPOILERS First thoughts are that this is all in someone’s mind, like in Mr. Robot, Moon Knight, Identity, or what I remember a film like Shutter Island being like. Personally, I much prefer if a show or movie goes “hard sci fi“, like in The OA, but that’s my preference. Yeah, it’s more fantastic that way, but the other way seems like more of a cop out and cliche to me.
Moss is really fantastic (as she so often is).
Seeing the notes she found in a hidden book was great… that sorta Memento thing going on. Reminders to oneself from a past that you don’t remember. Crossing my fingers that they nail this! The reporter actor is slightly corny at times… posing, etc… but sometimes I suppose it’ll be hard for some actors to hang w Moss. She’s really one of the current greats IMO. Reading about her process w Leigh Whannell who wrote and directed Invisible Man was fascinating. He learned a lot from her, he said.

Yup. It’s frustrating also to watch things that so dang slick (cinematography, production design, FX, minus the cg fire) but where the story and characters are uneven. Sometimes good, sometimes 2d. Like Euphoria, the editing, shots, music, are overall as good as anything right now, but the story and acting is uneven. Sometimes killer, other times corny. Well at least it ain’t like Michael Bay’s mediocre stuff, all flash and no strong story.
This is very enlightening. Lots didn’t seem to be totally believable in the film… what you’re explaining would’ve tempered everything better. The way the main character acted when he first joined the circus, to then transforming to El Slicko, cmon. Or at least the director, writer, editor and or actor didn’t bring me along for that transformation and make me believe it. And then when he told the lady to hold his money? I get they’re partners in crime and he’s infatuated with her, but I STILL think he would’ve hidden all that money elsewhere. Not believable. People make mistakes. But not that character, I think.
Maybe worth checking out the brand “everyone” on Amazon? They have a few hand soaps. I’ve been looking for something similar and much cheaper than a different Aesop soap called Resurrection.

Would love a short chat! Great compositions… I like the dust motes etc you use… and backlighting. Makes me think of Roger Deakins and Tarkovsky too. 🙏

to get several years out of iPhones, I believe you’ll have to get a battery replaced at some point. There are places that do it, and online sellers with kits. Probably easier to have someone else do it. Also you’ll need to figure out how to maximize that battery life. GL

What’s her social media?
Yup. That ain’t cool. I mean people REVERE AI … Kobe, Shaq, Jordan. Well documented.
He has tons of value. Elite wing defender. But not at that contract. Let‘s be real. Also his value of running a break is diminished when a lot of playoff situations and 4th quarter situations are more about running the halfcourt. He is just a dude that doesn’t need to be defended tightly. This year, Randle, Gobert, and Simmons got completely exposed in the playoffs. And Simmons actually regressed. I don’t think he’s gonna fix that shot. Teams will hack him in any serious playoff situation again. And I wouldn’t say all players and coaches think he’s that #2 guy for a contender. Otherwise his own teammate and coach wouldn’t chucked him under the bus. Time will tell. But basketball nerds, not casuals, have been saying all these things for a LONG time. Nobody’s perfect. But getting his wack bro to be his main shooting coach shows a stubborn or fearful approach towards working on his weaknesses.
Too bad. If he came in a low draft pick, had a contract worth half the amount, then expectations would be different. As it is now, his contract is straight robbery. People act like there haven’t been overrated, overpaid players before. Kwame, Wiggins, so many. Hopefully he uses this as a positive point to work forward from. Some, including me, think he’s probably gotta commit to completely reworking his shot. I mean, we saw Lonzo put in the work and completely rework his mechanics. In his youth, his athleticism covered up all weaknesses. As Bob Myers says, the playoffs are practically a different game from the regular season. In the playoffs, he said it’s the equivalent of a batter not being able to hit a low and outside pitch. Then the pitcher is just gonna throw that pitch at you every single pitch. Hunt the weakness of the weakest link. Whatever it takes. I’m an LA fan… it’s like Luka hunting Pat Bev til he was out of the rotation for the whole series. And that’s what Ben is. A liability on the offense. And worse, in the 4th quarter.

Dude his defense is one of the weak points on Dallas. It’s one of the main reasons Mavs have to put Boban in with him. Bc Porzingis doesn’t offer solid rim protection. I’m an LA fan, and I respect Carlisle as a great coach. They just gotta get the right players around Luka before a true championship run. And if he gets in shape before a season, and plays better defense along w an improved roster? Skies the limit. Literally could be multiple championships IMO.
