I want to write about here the misery and indignities of aging, from my perspective, about the biological cataclysm of aging, but I'm pretty sure it would only get me labeled ageist. I might trigger some poor delicate soul. I'll keep my gerascophobic meanderings to myself

The heat in this house is all but intolerable. It's become dangerous. There are actual reasons it's worse than last year, reasons that have nothing to do with the climate outside the house, but explaining that might get me yelled at by my downstairs neighbors and my upstairs landlady.

Really, there's an awful lot I just don't bother to say here anymore, because I no longer have the patience to deal with being yelled at all the time.

I've lost something like two solid weeks to the heat this summer, days when it was simply to hot to work in the only place I have to work. I will clearly be losing more days, beginning with this one.

We sat out part of yesterday in a dark and cold theatre, one of those rare genuinely pleasant sanctuaries from the heat. We saw Sean Ellis' superb Anthropoid, a WWII thriller about the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich. It's the sort of film I'm amazed anyone still makes. Reviewers didn't much like it. Reviewers can blow me.

There was a magnificent thunderstorm yesterday that I somehow managed to sleep through. When the bombs fall, I'll miss it. Lucky me.

70 years hot!
Yes, the house here is hotter than outside right now. And I feel it a while lot more than I did 20 years ago. Whew!

Triggers can blow me.

My grandmother, who was very heat-sensitive, used to spend much of her summers in movie theaters.

That weather map looks horrifying.

"...the biological cataclysm of aging..." Perfect description.

I wish you would write about your perspective, and it pisses me off that people make us censor ourselves because we're too fucking exhausted to suffer fools.

Aging. Henry. TRex.
I am 55, lived hard and fast, body failing. Stupid flesh. Apparently smoking is bad for you.

Just watched one of the most fun utterly fucking batshit insane movies I have ever seen, Hardcore Henry. Stoned. Hands down one of the most violent movies ever made. So over the top it was a cartoon with human actors. So I am easily entertained. Never claimed otherwise.

My sculptor buddy of the Tylosaur, Shane Foulkes,is soon releasing a 1/10th scale TRex, 4 feet long. Unbelievable detail. Huge- I must have it and have nowhere to display it. I must iterate- astonishing detail.

Hot as fuck summer here with no rain. The sky refuses.
