Spies work together; in teams, in networks, for organizations, and sometimes for themselves. But what happens when one of two former associates is assigned to spy on the other? That’s what happens in Len Deighton’s 1975 classic Yesterday’s Spy.Declassify >
This could very well be the same list you’ve read a hundred times since the beginning of the year. Do I apologize for this? I do not. This is a geek blog and most of these movies are geek movies, it just so happens that geek has moved into and maintained its place within the mainstream.
That being said, this is my list of the 18 movies I’m most looking forward to in 2018. Enjoy, and pass the popcorn.Declassify >
Over the course of 2017 I’ve consumed thousands of hours of podcasts. And for you, dear reader, I have collected some of the more transcendent quotes that hit me somewhere during those many hours.
To those who still don’t understand “podcasting,” I’d like to reference two quotes from a book by Marc Maron named Waiting for the Punch, before I start, which eloquently explain why podcasting is important.Declassify >
Waiting for the Punch by Marc Maron and Brendan McDonald might be one of the best compilations of stories you’ll ever read. It’s part manifesto, as the introductions that Maron writes in this book are just as insightful and impactful as the stories that are contained in each chapter.
It’s part self-help book, as you can’t help but put each nugget of truth in the context of your own life. And lastly, it’s part historical catalog of the human experience.Declassify >
Some call them non-traditional Christmas movies, but I prefer to call them, as the title says tangentially holiday Movies. I’ve also heard them called non-Christmas Christmas movies. Potato potahto…
All of these Movies have at least a passing mention of the holiday season, but are not centered around that fact.
So, for the Scrooge’s out there… This is a list where you could argue a Christmasaholic into watching, and I think you should, especially if they make you sit through hallmark holiday movies.Declassify >
