Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I missed out on Sundance this year, but this trailer really made me homesick for that fest. This is the kind of dramedy that there’s usually one of every year there. Stuff like The Skeleton Twins.

I know this kind of movie can get under the skin of some movie-goers, but I dig ’em. Will keep an eye out for this one (so sorry for awful pun).

Moses Sumney - "Worth It" VideoThe oh-so-soulful Moses Sumney drops sparingly, but when he does it’s usually something gorgeous. “Worth It” is a song he’s been performing for a while now, but even after sitting with it a couple years it’s aged like it was dipped in a fountain of youth. Sumney floats effortlessly into his textured falsetto to express … More »

In filings ahead of a hearing tomorrow, the 93-year-old mogul’s team says that Keryn’s lawyers have “strived mightily (but unsuccessfully) to initiate their own settlement discussions through every avenue imaginable.”
