Am interviewing candidates for my post next year. They're all shiny and new and very concerned about making the right impression and have thought out every answer possible to every question there is and their suits are all dark and nary a blue eye-shadow to be seen.

We ask the question "What is your favorite movie and why." We are very fond of the "...and why." Inordinately. And we've gotten the stock answers: Citizen Kane, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Traffic, blah, blah blah blah.

Just once I want them to say Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle for the subtle commentary on racial politics, impressions and identity.

Or the BBC Pride and Prejudice because Colin Firth was young and yummy and when he approached Elizabeth, he was instructed to imagine he had an enormous erection.

This blog is devolving into something interesting.
