Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels came out on video when I was 21. I remember it because I had just moved out of my parents’ house into a duplex with my first roommates, Lauren and Tina*.

For some reason, she had bad river-floating… Continue reading Lessons on The River of Life, Part 2
This is not a movie review, it is simply a record of my experience. Therefore there will be no spoilers.
