Okay, new account. New instance. New #introductions.
Hello! My name's Phil and - for now - I'm based in Northern Virginia. I can't code my way out of a box, but I *do* design WYSIWYG-platform websites for aspiring authors and bloggers.
My side project is a website that centralizes web patronage for journalists, writers, and artists. Often, I talk movies. And I love new music and fiction.
I support: trans people and the full LGBTQIA spectrum. And I'm a child of immigrants.
Bus stop chronicles, movies, Quentin Tarantino, Edgar Wright
Saw a tweet referencing a relationship between Quentin Tarantino and Edgar Wright. Now, my feelings on QT are muddled. His movies do things that seem...unique? But it's all also obnoxious? Regarding Wright, I have Last Night in Soho strongly on my radar, but Wright did other stuff during the Pandemonium that I didn't investigate.
I am now on the bus.

One embarrassing thing I'm doing these days is bringing coffee drinks into the bathroom with me when I have my morning bowel movements. Well, today, it finally happened. I had a full 46 fluid ounce container of Chameleon Cold-Brew Medium Roast that I had set on the bathtub and I knocked it in into the tub. My solution to this problem was to immediately take a shower after my bowel exercises.
