Like everyone else, I'm taking the next two days off to gorge on food and brown liquor. Well, I guess the brown liquor isn't really a change from the status quo, but I'm taking Thursday and Friday off all the same. Kevin will be around Saturday and Sunday to get you through the weekend. Until then, enjoy Lions-Packers, Cowboys-Jets (ugh), and not watching Colts-Falcons.
Also, at this special time of year, I like to pause and reflect on Terence Malick's 2005 film The New World. Colin Farrell, age 29, got paid a handsome sum to hook up with Q'Orianka Kilcher (Pocahontas), who was 14 at the time. She later admitted that their on-screen heat was her first kiss, and filmmakers edited out several scenes to sidestep child pornography laws.
So at this and every Thanksgiving, take the time to think about what you're really thankful for. And if what you're really thankful for happens to be a really heavy object, pray that it falls on Colin Farrell. That guy's a fucking asshole.
