It’s astonishing how much Sam takes after his daddy.
In my description I say that I am a “Motion Picture Exhibition Facility Engineer”, which is just my smart-ass way of saying that I run movie theatres. I’ve been working in cinemas for over 20 years now, and my most recent stint was running a cozy little 6-plex that was almost 30 years old. I was there for 8 years before my company sold the property and closed it last month.
It was a good run and I will really miss it. It’s guaranteed to remain my all-time favorite.
I took pictures as all the company property was stripped out of the place over the course of a couple of weeks and put this video together.
Regarding the tunage: yeah yeah, it’s sappy. But the hell with that! It seemed appropriate and to tell the truth, the stupid song always chokes me up a little bit. So there you are: I’m a pussy.
Everyone knows that the Internet is changing our lives, mostly because someone in the media has uttered that exact phrase every single day since 1993. However, it certainly appears that the main thing the Internet has accomplished is the normalization of amateur pornography. There is no justification for the amount of naked people on the World Wide Web, many of whom are clearly (clearly!) doing so for non-monetary reasons. Where were these people fifteen years ago? Were there really millions of women in 1986 turning to their husbands and saying, ‘You know, I would love to have total strangers masturbate to images of me deep-throating a titanium dildo, but there’s simply no medium for that kind of entertainment. I guess we’ll just have to sit here and watch Falcon Crest again.
