Monday Morning Commute: it was all a blur (and then it was nothing)

Goodness, gracious, I haven’t penned an MMC since fucking June?

This summer: it was all a blur (and then it was nothing).

Goodness, gracious, I haven’t penned anything in here since September?

This past month: it was all a blur (and then it was nothing).

Goodness, gracious, I haven’t taken a breath since the pandemic ended?

This pandemic: it was all a blur (and then it was nothing).

Over the weekend I had a dream that I was on campus, dying of COVID. In case you’re wondering how I’m doing. Over the past few weeks I swear the right side of my beard has gone entirely gray. In case you’re wondering how I’m doing. I feel like a husk, hollowed out, but excited to be back on campus. It’s a weird time, a ghost town, a mournful tribune to what we’ve lost, while appreciating we’re back on campus.

It’s a weird time.

Furthermore, I don’t really know the state of OL anymore. No one really reads blogs anymore, Discord has siphoned all of our conversation, and any meaningful connections with communities across the internet have seemingly moved to Substack.

So why the fuck am I here? Honestly? I’m not sure. If nothing else, I figure writing MMC every week could serve as an enjoyable fossil record for my interests at any given point in time. You can cut the rings in my soul, and chronicle what was on my mind. As well, I miss writing and this place is my only outlet.

This is Monday Morning Commute.

‘Dune’ director Denis Villeneuve would love to make a Bond movie. Let him fucking make one!

dune director denis villeneuve love to make bond movie

Motherfucking Denis Villeneuve would “deeply love” to make a Bond movie, and the only response is obvious. Fucking let him make the movie! But I mean genuinely make it. Don’t stick him inthe director’s chair and then micromanage his ass into oblivion. Give him the reins and let him make the fucking dopest Bond flick going. Do it, you fucking cowards.

‘Dune’ Trailer: A gorgeous and foreboding preview and I have no idea how this movie got made

Man, they finally dropped the first trailer for Dune. Now admittedly, I haven’t read the book. But this trailer is fucking gorgeous. It’s also spell-bindingly esotetic, and I have no idea how it was made. This gorgeous, dark motherfucker cost $150 million. Like, okay! I’m more than stoked, but I balk at the idea that it’s going to drag in enough of Joe and Pam Mainstreet to make its money back.

Still glad it exists, though!
