You Were Never Really Here: A Review For People With No Time For Reviews

ames

I try to read for fun every night and for at least an hour. Earlier this week, I picked up You Were Never Really Here by Jonathan Ames (creator of Bored to Death and Blunt Talk). I finished it in one go, which is something I’ve rarely done in the past few years. Granted it was a quick read at 112 pages. If you’re into noir, especially noir with a hard-boiled kind of protagonist who carries a hammer, this might be right up your alley. The subject matter is also a bit dark (I’m not a good judge of this as I spent years studying German and Austrian literature which has a tendency to being pretty dark and grim itself), so enter at your own risk. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good, quick read.

Comrade Detective, Ep. 1 The Invisible Hand

Do you like making fun of Americans? Or if you are an American, do you like being made fun of? If yes, then this is the show for you. Channing Tatum, Nick Offerman, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt dub a Romanian crime show form the Cold War era and tap into the darkness of my nightmares: A killer in a Ronnie Reagan mask… and capitalism. Mainly the Ronald Reagan mask, though. Shit, that’s creepy…
