Old Fashioned

It was too early to go home but too late to make plans so I found myself at E’s place after last call.  ”Is it too late to get a drink?” I asked anyway. (It doesn’t hurt to ask.)

"You can have anything you want," he said. Mischievous grin, dramatic hand gesture to his bar. "If you make it."

So following his directions, I muddled sugar with an orange rind. I counted a six second pour of Jameson, added ice and bitters, and stirred along the edge of the glass. I strained the drink over fresh rocks and twisted and ran a new orange peel along the rim.

"Great, now make two more."

Last night was a kind reminder to know that while you can buy something, sometimes it’s better to make one for yourself, and best to make them with and for your friends.

Does He?

“I heard you’re dating,” A said almost immediately upon entering the bar. He planted himself directly to my right, which he wouldn’t leave for the rest of the night. Although it was his birthday, he insisted on buying everyone the first round of whiskey shots, including mine.

I am.

“But does he get your work?”

“Does he get what you do?”

“I mean, does he get your art?”

“And does he respect you?”

“Does he take good care of you?”

“Does he treat you well?”

Um, that’s a lot of questions.

“You know what I mean though.” 

“…Does he?”

A long-time Linklater fan, I have been stalking this film on IMDB since it was called ‘The Untitled 12-Year Project.’ I was in the house in March for its early am SXSW Austin Premiere - particularly apt as it is about a specifically Texan upbringing and I am too specifically Texan* - and compelled to watch it all over again with good friends during its Brooklyn premiere at BAM Cinema Fest.

Aside from the genius and novelty of a film about the passage of time filmed in real time, my review and impressions of the film can best be summarized by this scene in I Heart Huckabees.

Boyhood is everything and nothing in a meadow at dusk. It’s beautiful.

Valentine - Jessie Ware ft. Sampha

Have you been listening to this song on repeat since Orange is the New Black’s Season 2 Episode 6 “You Also Have a Pizza”?

Yeah… “me neither.”

(I have this hypothesis that I like you
that I would like to test.
But because all the variables cannot be controlled
it appears we’ll never make it to the experiment.)
