    "A fast, complex, exhilarating roadster ride through history and time.... Kino is an intoxicating Euro-brew, written with enormous skill and dedication." — Frederick Barthelme

    "Jürgen Fauth's deft mashup of genre and historical period is both a full-throttle literary thriller of ideas and a contemplative examination of film and fascism. Kino is a debut of great intellectual  force."– Teddy Wayne

    "A surprising alternative history. Kino brings the golden age of German cinema to light with loving, sometimes gritty, detail and great precision." – Neal Pollack, author of Jewball.

    "A delirious melange of conspiracy, magic, sex, history, bad behavior, and cinema, Kino is a stellar entertainment, and Jürgen Fauth is a writer of rare, sinister imagination." – Owen King, author of Reenactment

    "A light-hearted romp that leads straight into darkness and back through the shadows on the wall."– Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest

Went from two stars to one star overnight. Top fact about Pirates: it’s *long*. Really, really long. There are about 7 kraken attacks, four hours of swashbuckling saber fights, and only one kiss between Keira Knightly and Johnny Depp, who is obviously laughing all the way to the bank and back home to Vanessa Le Taxi. The funniest thing we saw was the trailer for Talladega Nights which had Marcy screaming with laughter at least twice. Do we regret going to see this endless bore of a movie? No, because fun things happen on a Saturday afternoon in Tunkhannock, PA. To wit: my sporty Daffy’s shirt was insulted by local teenagers, we bought super spicy Jalapeno mustard from local lesbians, and for the very first time in my life, I gave an Amish woman a hard time. Also, who knew you could still see $5 matinees anywhere?

    I never liked the 1st one, either. Not planning on seeing this. Is there a pic you can forward of your shirt? Also — there are $4 movies near Jason.

    I remember nothing about the first one other than that it was enjoyable. Those movies on Queens Blvd aren’t first-run though, are they?

    P.S.: It was a perfectly fine summer shirt. Teenage twits from Tunkhannok have no taste.

    Drove past it the other day – it’s first run. . .or at least close to it. I’ve never been there, to be honest.
