#736: The Substitute

September 10, 2012

Becky's dealing with a different kind of zombie now — high school kids during first period!

By the way, although the Chicago teacher's union is on strike as of today, Becky is not a strikebreaker; the substitute teaching network (mentioned in #718) only works with charter and private schools, not Chicago Public Schools. As a pinko, I just that to be clear.

The Substitute is, of course, a 1996 action thriller starring Tom Berenger best known for spawning three straight-to-DVD sequels (starring Treat Williams).

Back to the movie on Thursday… assuming I get the strip done on time. See you then.

Coincidentally, I'm TAing my first discussion groups at the University of Minnesota today! So I guess it's my first day as a teacher, as well. Kind of.

Trailer Watch: Jenny Slate in Obvious Child

Thursday, April 17, 2014

This apparently hit big at Sundance, and who doesn’t like Jean-Ralphio’s sister on Parks & Rec? Okay, maybe a lot of people, but Jenny Slate is fuckin’ funny. Anyway. Obvious Child is an indie comedy-drama about a young potty-mouth comedian (Slate) who finds out she’s pregnant and… just watch this.

Obvious Child was written and directed by Gillian Robespierre. It hits theaters on June 6, 2014. It’s so indie, its official movie site is on Tumblr.
