To the Person Behind the Counter

Last week, at the very end of my shift, I walked to buy a surprise bottle of whiskey for my coworker.  It was his 21st birthday, and we proceeded to take shots of Old Overholt Rye out of paper espresso cups, the ones with the useless fold-out handles.  It was a nice moment of camaraderie, but lately I am filled to the brim with the … Continue reading To the Person Behind the Counter

Steven: Making the Film

I began my trip at MOMA.  I went straight upstairs to view the Magritte exhibit.  The gallery was full of chattering French people, and every minute or so I floated back to the summer I spent in Paris, when I walked alone through the Musee d’Orsay, soaking it in.  The bizarre landscapes and subversive humor in Magritte’s canvases proved to be a perfect warm-up to … Continue reading Steven: Making the Film
