Now, for a change of pace, consider seeing movie the Whalerider. Or as you like it.

Kids I know will love this, if they're not persuaded by malicious forces that it's corny. Or fake.

Holden is not fake.

Cheerleaders are deeper than you thought, too. Many of them wish someone would notice.

Same goes, sort of, for football heroes.

Anyway way, ought to be shown in random assemblies.

Me, call me corny. I loved it. Or call me more hip than you, because that too may be true. It's just a silly, earnest movie. Let yourself fall into it, without expectation of titillation. Prepare to fall deep, then ask yourself to unprepare and follow it.

Or go watch Futurama. It also has things for you to learn, if only you will.

Snooty critics annoy me as much as conformist critics. Pretty much.
