Tout Va Bien = thank god for the skip feature on dvds…

…that way, Yosef and I could check at 10 minute intervals to see if there was ever going to be a plot. The answer… after this ten minute rant about the capitalist oligarchy. And this one. And this one. Oh look, a picture of a woman holding a penis. Oh, now it’s another ten minute [...]

mazel tov!

stevereed is a friend and long-time AF-er. He also just became a Daddy! Looks like someone needs to register the url “” and start blogging about his precocious daughter! I’ll totally link you, dude!
