@REPollock - congrats on your #big10k ! This Halloween I‘m revisiting my first “real job” and am heading to work in my original Blockbuster Video uniform...still searching for some khakis, but there‘s still time. #WowWhatADifference

REPollock I love this idea! 👻 2d
vivastory I worked at blockbuster for about a year. It was right around the time that DVDs first hit the market. 2d
JackOBotts @vivastory - it was a “dream job” for me at the time. 5 free rentals a week...I had a bootleg system and was setting my collection up for college...📼📼😆 22h

A colleague‘s daughter and her friend made this graphic novel (Deathwish) featuring the guys from My Chemical Romance. I ordered their first two issues and enjoyed what I‘ve read so far. These ladies are impressive...love seeing talent and people making their dreams a reality!

Sace Beautiful art! 1w
JackOBotts @Sace I‘m amazed. She‘s a first-year college student! Clearly her enrollment in a BFA program makes perfect sense! They‘ve got talent! 1w

ImperfectCJ I just introduced my children to the movie this past weekend. My son, with about fifteen minutes left, said, "Wait, does this movie have a happy ending?" I enjoyed the book even more than the movie; I think my daughter, at least, will pick it up. 1mo
JackOBotts @ImperfectCJ - this book rocked me. I read it in my first semester of college and was just stunned at the tragedy of his experience. I‘m sure being away from home for the first time played a part in that, but it has stayed with me. I thought the movie adaptation was good and enjoyed Eddie Vedder‘s score for the movie. I hope your kids decide to read it. 1mo
ImperfectCJ @JackOBotts It definitely prompted a lot of thought for me about the nature of self-sufficiency. At any point a small slip could have snowballed (so to speak), and so many times there were people to help him through. I rarely re-read, but now I want to pick this one up again. 1mo
marleed I love the soundtrack of this movie but much preferred the book. In the book I felt there was time to sink into his skin and appreciate what he went through. I was so excited to see the movie. Went with a friend who hadn‘t read the book. He thought - spoiled, arrogant rich kid. 1mo
JackOBotts @ImperfectCJ - agreed- I couldn‘t imagine doing something like this, myself. And then to have it end as it did. Tragic. @marleed - yes, I agree 💯. I appreciated the adaptation, and can definitely see your friend‘s POV (even having read the book first). It definitely takes a certain level of arrogance to just walk away with so little preparation...and to not let anyone know what you‘re up to! 🤦🏻‍♀️ 1mo

I devoured this co-memoir in a little over a day! It wasn‘t what I expected (more about their podcasting/love of true crime), but I enjoyed hearing more about their histories and journeys...and appreciated the little kicks in the ass delivered along the way. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Patchshank I liked it as well. I hope they co-author more books together. I think everyone wants them to write a true crime book. They more than enough knowledge and doing the podcast for so long I'm sure they have the research skills to do so. 2mo

I so enjoyed this novel. I loved the non-linear storytelling; I loved piecing the story together in bits and pieces.

I got to experience a show at the #GrandOleOpry last night...Alice Cooper. Not who I would‘ve expected to see while in TN, but so worth it. At 71, the man can perform. Such a fun show!

LibrarianRyan Okay, I really want to know how Cooper gets to preform on the Opry stage. I had read that they were really picky. Had to be country and a member of the Opry. I am kind of jelly right now. 3mo
JackOBotts @LibrarianRyan - I‘m right there with you! I‘m not sure how it came to be, but I‘m SO glad I heard about it. Otherwise I wouldn‘t have made it to the venue. He put on a solid show...no country acts performed with him (Halestorm was the opener, which we didn‘t see). Does the Opry moonlight as a regular ole venue on occasion? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Perhaps...it‘s a mystery to me. 3mo

Another important, honest, and open work from Haig. How has society, technology, social media, culture changed, and how have those changes impacted our daily lives? This may be the only book I finish in June, but it was a good one. Lots to highlight and reflect upon.

They tell their story without hesitation. Jacob doesn‘t pretend to sugarcoat their experience or who they are; they tell their story, share their experiences with frankness & honesty: the bad, the ugly, the better. And they do so with humor and intellect.

The Room. It‘s amazing how bad this movie is. Incongruous...plot holes galore...and yet...amazing. Sestero takes the reader through the wild ride that is his friendship with The Room‘s mastermind: Tommy Wiseau. As crazy-bizarre as he appears to be, I have to give Wiseau major credit for bringing his dream to reality (🤔 how did he find this thing?!). Of course, I need to rewatch both movies. 🤷🏻‍♀️💣🎥

It feels appropriate to finish this on St. Patrick‘s Day.

I appreciate that the resolution wasn‘t tidy and perfect: questions remain unanswered, which feels more true to life. Ryan is an unreliable narrator, which we know from the opening lines...and I‘m okay with that, though I know it can irk others.

I‘m glad I started with the first book in the DMS series, especially since we see more of Maddox in The Likeness.
