Well that was certainly chock full of un-simulated sex. Otherwise, it was nothing. Maybe it was better in 3D.
I can’t explain why I didn’t enjoy this more. I don’t feel like I learned much of anything new about Spielberg or his movies.
If film is meant to be a visual art form, then “The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears” certainly qualifies. I didn’t want to blink for fear of missing something. I found no sign of a narrative, though. In this case I didn’t mind.

Had a brisk morning swim yesterday in northern Michigan.
Ok fine, Josh, I’m not going to argue with you. Lots of other people will do that. And many others will argue with them . And so on.
But also: Pot, meet Kettle.
I mean, have you looked at The Outline’s website? I love what they’re trying to do there, but wow what an affront to the senses.
I just love that the pull quote above is bordered by those tacky animated wiggly lines. Good times.
A few years ago Amazon sort of quietly lobbed the Echo at us and I’ve used a phrase starting with “Alexa…” many times a day ever since. Alexa isn’t perfect, but my frustration with her never reaches the fever pitch that it does when arguing with Siri. With an original Echo and a couple of inexpensive Dots, Alexa is always within earshot. No battery and nothing has to be on my wrist or in my pocket. And she seems to always hear me when I talk to her.
I want Apple to provide me the perfect ecosystem of hardware and software that is needed for a smooth smart home experience. So far they have failed to produce or even hint at anything.
So, with the introduction of the Echo Plus with a built-in smart hub, I’m heading even further down the Amazon path. If I can set up new devices without adding more hubs or device-specific apps I’ll be happy. Of course I don’t know how well it’ll all work, but Amazon’s track record with these things is pretty good. Surprisingly good.
I don’t understand how Apple, having had all of the smart home ingredients available to them for so long, can seemingly be so far behind Amazon. But that’s where we are. This stuff feels like a “hobby” for Amazon too, but they’ve gotten it pretty close to just right. I’m tired of waiting for “any day now.”
