Listen to the gossip.

I work in the IT/Marketing/Social fields, a Culture Vulture in heart and an one part geek in a all-rounder way!

Shiny is better.

@nitinkhanna I still play mobile games like Monument Valley on occasion but I mostly play PC and console gaming these days since most mobile games are IAP and lootbox hell.

@jacobrealo Certain Women is a adoption of many short stories which is unique. A very good film that I got via Criterion’s B&N sale last month.

@jacobrealo I actually loved Laura in Blue Velvet first though before this and she's still relevant today (Marriage Story and Certain Women for instance if you haven't saw it yet).

@jacobrealo It's just one example of what makes Laura an great actor and person. I really wish they both could have stayed together in the Jurassic universe.
