The Top 10 Existential Movies of All Time Browsing through my DVD collection recently I realized that I have a fairly decent selection of what can be called 'existential movies' -- philosophical films that study the nature of existence and what it means to be alive. It's debatable as to what defines the 'quintessential' existential movie, but ultimately it must speak to the human condition and reframe it in such a way that the viewer gains an enhanced appreciation of their own existence and situation in life. These are the kinds of films that you find yourself reflecting back upon time and time again as you engage in your own day-to-day life, struggles and relationships.
SoMA Review - Hunter S. ThompsonRoad Man for the Lords of Karma Hunter S. ThompsonRoad Man for the Lords of Karma Its been 10 days since the Good Doctor ended his life, and the tribute I intend to write will just have to wait till the shock (though not disbelief) that hes gone wears off.

The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows & waldosia The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows is a compendium of invented words written by John Koenig. Each original definition aims to fill a hole in the language—to give a name to emotions we all might experience but don’t yet have a word for.

Cricket Hill Collection Hand-marbled paper, gouache, and ink on paper by Sophie B. During Field Work Term, I would absolutely love to work with the Pittsburgh Pirates, a Major League Baseball team. In 2011, I fell in love with baseball, specifically Pirates baseball, and haven’t stopped since. I watch, listen to, or follow every game, gathering information about every pitcher, batter, and umpire that I can. The game just fascinates me, and one dream I have is to work in the front office for the Pirates, researching players and drawing up trades. I also enjoy the broadcasting side of baseball, and I shadowed the voice of the Pirates a couple of years ago.
What's up with Henry Earl? Henry is The Man So there's this guy named Henry Earl. He lives in Lexington, KY.

In desperation he ties these around his neck, manages to fashion a fairly acceptable looking knot and lets the ends dangle free.
