Love What You Do… Or Don’t Do It

I don’t post many commercials, but if I had to constrain such posts to things I love, whiskey commercials would be on my list.  If I raised the bar higher, and made it only include those that I admire, I would not have many logs to put on the fire.  Charles Bukowski carried me forward with his prose those years I was aged 22 -25.  I wouldn’t normally recommend advice from a drunkard, but he was a great one.  Live true.

And thanks to The NYTimes YEAR IN IDEAS for tipping me to this too.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
