Well, I went to see the Big Bisexual Sheepherd movie. Mm-mmm, Jake Gyllenhall is easy on the eye. An interesting movie in its subversion of the usual gay/adulterous themes; the substitute of a sheep killed by a coyote for the usual tragic murdered/suicided lover, the accidental oversight that leads to ... well, nothing much really, the denial of the forbidden affair which, instead of setting both its participants free, traps them in repeating the same, stupid dance year after year. Interesting, modern, beautiful, possibly even revolutionary but not (for me) terribly sexy or involving. Still, 2006. The year Marlboro men started coming in twos.

In other news, wow, some of you have had an awful weekend. My sympathies.

More news: I have creative block.

beans, dried venison, beans, beer, turkey, beans
... and no, in fact I spent the entire film on the edge of my seat praying that it wasn't about to break out into John Bloody Denver.

Hmm, looking perhaps (looking at that shopping list) the closing titles should have been "cowboys are secretly fond of the small of each others' farts"
