Sundance has been rejuvenating and inspiring this year, rather than exhausting. Probably because I haven’t really been doing any work.

…”proffesinal film critics. what is you opinion on such matters?” // I can’t WAIT to reply to this e-mail.
E-mail: “I am in great admaration of your work, and am currently writing a media essay on the differences between amatuer and [cont’d]
I am hearing some serious blasphemy about Apple’s new gadget. Don’t make Steve Jobs angry or he’ll stop giving us things!
My new motto, courtesy of Louis C.K.: “That’s just me saying something terrible because it makes me laugh that it upsets you.”
Louis C.K. concert film is hysterical. I feel bad for the filmmakers whose movies didn’t get in to Sundance, but still.

BLUE VALENTINE: Gosling and Williams’ performances are terrific, but the film didn’t do much for me. Also, I don’t like random titles.
Day 4 (Sunday, Jan. 24)
I got another nosebleed today. Whenever I get a nosebleed I think I have cancer or a brain tumor, because in movies it’s always a surprise nosebleed that first alerts a character to such a condition. I’ve made a note to worry more about this when I get home.
You’ve probably been concerned about what I’m eating. Burger King is still the only fast food place within walking distance of the Yarrow and Holiday Village, unless you count the Quiznos, which I don’t, because Quiznos, eh. I had a dream a couple weeks ago that a Subway had opened next to Burger King. I literally dreamed of having more nearby food options.
A couple years ago, a place that used to be a burrito place turned into a place with pizza and sandwiches, and there was much rejoicing. We loved Used To Be A Burrito Place, as it was known. But then last year it was gone, its storefront empty, and there was sadness. This year it has reemerged as a Mexican place, and it’s fairly bueno. My Film.com editor, Laremy, and I had dinner there last night, and then he and I had lunch there today with Neil from Film School Rejects. So thumbs up for Used To Be A Pizza Place That Used To Be A Burrito Place.
I will eat lunch with whoever meets me at the Park City Burger King at 12:30, even if I do not like that person.
