    Tortoise Wins by a Hare

    Pure Cinema. Bugs Bunny as a manic Captain Ahab obsessed with getting vengeance on Cecil Turtle. The short opens with recycled footage of the first Bugs/Cecil short only to reveal Bugs stewing over it with hate in his heart. These shorts where he strives and panics and whines and flips out are like dispatches from a better world where Bugs was unburdened with greatness and allowed to flex dramatic and low status muscles that would atrophy in the fifties.

    The Beatles: Get Back

    John: You gotta admit that John is funny. Like, come on. I know all the bad stuff about him. But you've gotta admit he was funny. We cannot have a productive dialogue if you won't meet me halfway on this. All the zoomer boys with haircuts like broccoli taking shots at him on TikTok can't touch how funny he is singing Two Of Us with Paul through clenched teeth. John has always been my favorite Beatle. Ever since I was…
