    As his father suffers in the hospital, Dylan forgoes a chance to see him in favor of performing with his small-time improv comedy troupe at a local club.

  • Vape

    Ah, the vaporizer. Cigarettes’ libertarian cousin. The clean coal of smoking. The accessory that says “I left my fedora at home, but you get the idea.” It’s no exaggeration to say that vaping has captured the American imagination.

  • Perfect Thoughts

    Another one for ya, same deal, brilliant film that nobody's seen, that's gotten no credit, played 1 festival (La Di Da '13). I can't stand how much I love this movie.
