Slacker For Life

So I was pleasantly surprised to hear that money really doesn’t buy happiness, since it looks like I will never be making the big bucks because I started working during a recession. Poor me, thinking that hard work and honest effort were their own rewards. Guess I’ll always be a Slacker…

Speaking of that seminal movie, Salon has a nice write up about the movie and how well it has withstood the test of time after 15 years. Richard Linklater has gone on to other things, but he still has a soft spot for the disaffected and unemployed. The long delayed A Scanner Darkly opens this week in limited release, and I’m looking forward to it. Of course it is the quintessential type of movie that never plays on Guam. But there’s always video; and Slacker is available on DVD now too. Cool.

    Glad to see you’re back to blogging. I took your recommendation and put Slacker on my netflix list. I missed a lot of movies between 1988-1993 ~ too busy having way too much fun. oh, I forgot…you can never have too much fun.

    Maybe we’ll see you on a boonie stomp in August.
