Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is Polar Express but with Nazis

Watched Jim Jarmusch’s Stranger Than Paradise. We used to spend a lot of time doing nothing in the pre-internet days.

Last night Rachel and I watched “The Unbinding”, the new documentary from the Newkirks. If you’re interested in haunted objects, I highly recommend this one. Available on Prime.

Rachel and I watched the Earthing documentary over the weekend. Basically, it makes the argument for the therapeutic usefulness of actual feet on the actual ground. As with most things like this, I’m less interested in this or that “evidence” and more interested in it as a practice of reconnection.

Penda’s Fen, folks. I never heard of this movie before yesterday and now I can’t get it out of my head. Pagan, anarchist, localist, seventies British folk horror. There’s so much going on in it.

My daughter Darcy has declared this Spooky Saturday. She says this involves Starbucks for breakfast, putting up more Halloween decorations, carving the pumpkin, a campfire, and more of the Spooked podcast. They’re still asleep at the moment so I’m watching Horror of Dracula.
