The Best Way to Enjoy Movies

The best way of enjoying a film is to know nothing at all about the actors. Except that they’re famous and good sports.

(David Mitchell, “Why didn’t Liam Neeson just stick to the script?”, The Guardian, 2-10-19)

I’m too lazy to investigate every single unfamiliar word I encounter, but after sliding over a subheading several times that said an actor “hung out with a cosh,” I finally had to look up “cosh” (then read the article): Merriam-Webster says, ‘(Chiefly British): a weighted weapon similar to a blackjack.’ Cosh closed.

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day. I like to read and memorize poetry.
