When I was a little kid I saw Back to the Future 2 in theaters and when the movie ended they showed 40 seconds of Back to the Future 3. Do you have any idea how fucking hype that was? That’s like if Avengers: Infinity War ended and they showed a trailer for Endgame RIGHT THERE.

Honestly who among us hasn’t been displaced to the darkness beyond the door, really.

If for some reason you still haven’t seen UNCUT GEMS - my absolute favorite movie of 2019 - it’s on Netflix today and it’s extraordinarily tense, funny, paranoid, and frenetic. Add it to your list and watch it as soon as you can. It’s like no other Adam Sandler movie before it.

@ViiiRed  I can assure you that whatever you saw does not undermine everything that this 2+ hour movie accomplishes, even if it’s the last shot of the film.

@bmckniff  It weirdly works as a comedy, character study, and a masterclass in chaos on second viewing since you’re less constantly stressed about how it will end!

I am not a doctor but it feels like there might be some wiggle room between “you must stay inside hiding forever” and “let’s go get day drunk in a jam-packed public pool full of 400 party dudes who love to openly piss on their own legs.”

What about this iconic photo from NASCAR 2019

Looks like I can finally talk about this big project I'm hosting/working on with @Terri_Schwartz  & @IGN ! I really miss hosting a geeky travel show (go watch Fast Travel!) so visiting celebrity Animal Crossing islands and talking to them about their homes/towns will be awesome 😁

When my ex dumped me in 2004 we had both played a ton of Animal Crossing for Gamecube together and all of the villagers in my town kept mentioning her name & showing me letters she had written them and I was like listen up you fucking animals there are two sides to the story here
