Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Doctor Pasolini: You have cancer of the liver. 
Mr. Legendre: Cancer? Me?
Doctor Pasolini: It's in a fairly advanced state. 
But today, you know, these things... Cigarette?

Today feels like a good day! An excellent day! Not to run ahead of ourselves but things look real good politics-wise (it looks like the Democrats have won back the Senate, although this will probably be contested for a couple of weeks I would guess), the sun is shining, and best of all a whopper of a blu-ray boxed-set is on the streets thanks to Criterion! Their "Three Films By Luis Buñuel" set, which contains his final three surrealist masterpieces -- The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, The Phantom of Liberty, and That Obscure Object of Desire -- is available this very day. I told you about this in October when they first announced it but who can remember October (even though you could tell me that October was yesterday and I'd believe you), so here, a reminder. You can never go wrong with Buñuel.
