Quote of the Day

Again, from the Simmons/Klosterman confab (by Chuck):

"Pedro Martinez is my favorite player in MLB, so I suppose I am a Red Sox fan; I just don't have that much invested in the franchise, and I hate Ben Affleck.”
Take the same quote, substitute “John Kerry” for “Pedro Martinez”; “the Senate” for “MLB”; and “Democratic” for “Red Sox.” It still makes sense!

And yes, Simmons is right: “Singles” is an infinitely better movie than “Reality Bites.” How anyone can take the latter film seriously after reading Ebert’s review is beyond me. “Kicking and Screaming” is pretty good too.
