Public Catalog of Shame: Movies Watched November 2014

NOTES: Spent a lot of time with Spielberg this month. Raiders will change your life every time, so will Jaws. More on that soon? This month was kind of an endless stress nightmare for me and everyone I know, oh right that was just the whole year. Also the planet is on fire, maybe cowgir up and be quiet about your problems, Sean. Sharing is for people who don’t have movies to list.

The plan for December is to kill my notebook, which means back to work. Write those words on your heart. January: Travis Bickle on the Riviera hits #100 (what?), a best of the year list (maybe?), I pull my teeth with fillings out out with a hammer to get the CIA to stop talking to me (definitely)… AAAAAAND 30 days from today: the last of these things. BACK TO WORK.
