Loved it so much I honestly dreamed of knitting. Imagine my disappointment when I woke up to find I still only had the following inches to show for all my hours of mid-sleep work…
This rust-coloured row is on its long, slow way to becoming a cowl for Sean.
Something I’m a little better/faster at is the following…
A simple toolkit for the three Allen keys most commonly used by cyclists.
The triple-pocket action holds #’s 4, 5 and 6 – perfect for water bottles cages and certain fender/rack bolts (#4), cable pinch bolts, brake bolts and clamps for shifters and derailleurs (#5), and stem/handlebar bolts as well as the odd seat post (#6). There’s space to jam a couple extras in, but this is stitched tight in order to hold fast to your three main squeeze tools.
Set to be listed in the shop this afternoon.
Finally, I saw this last night and it was quite fantastic. Sean will tell you my vision is clouded by my love of Ryan Gosling (and that was true back in the days during which I secretly followed the adventures of Sean Hanlon on YTV), but no more. This guy is a fantastic fucking actor. End of story. I’m wild for Michelle Williams (thank god she broke free of Dawson’s Creek) in much the same way, so what a thing to have them in this movie together. It’s not an upper (I’ve been on that kind of kick lately – Black Swan, Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine), but it is so good.
It’s the real-life version of 500 Days of Summer, which, though I liked it, is the glossy hipster version of Blue Valentine. There are nerds on the IMDB message boards who can’t get enough of slamming BV for A) being too Revolutionary Road (you don’t know what you’re talking about) and B) thinking it’s too cool for its own good, but those viewers are imbeciles. As one film-goer pointed out – if it was hipster, there would have been way less caring going on.
Watch it. It’s great. Authentic and unpretentious. Everyone delivered a stellar performance. Go improv. And bravo for setting a story in NYC in such an understated way. You’re the first movie not to beat me over the head with that fact since Raising Victor Vargas.
If this doesn’t get some Oscar action I’ll be disappointed. Also, unrelated, but I’m laying this out there – John Hawkes is going to be the wild card for best actor. And he should totally win.
