It's Tax Day, and that means... well, nothing, actually. Just hope you got your taxes filed without suffering from a prolapsed anything. I'm learning that the greatest reward to having two kids, a mortgage that makes me feel like I'm being chased by a bear 24/7, and a constant lack of money is that Tax Day doesn't hurt nearly as bad as it used to. I'll chalk that up as a small victory.
I wouldn't have thought to do a tax-related movie post, but the fine folks over at Spoutblog did, and they have up a charming list of 10 Likable Tax Agents from movies. Well-played.
Got a tax refund coming? Maybe you can waste it the way I plan to. And for the record, whoever outbids me on Rick Deckard's gun is a bastard, and I will karate punch you in the dirty-bidness the next time I see you.
Say what you will about Brett Ratner, but this is a cool move. There are so many great film books that have gone out of print over the years, and if he's planning on re-publishing some great obscure texts, then that scores him some serious karma points as far as I'm concerned. This is nothing but win for film fans, and I'm curious to take a look at this first batch of titles he's got planned.
