I’m Suzie Lightning, a floundering novelist, sporadically employed writer, and sometimes bartender who needed an anonymous spot to park the flotsam, jetsam, film analysis, and inspirado that don’t have a place in my manuscripts.

I sarcastically dubbed this “a blog for the end times” about two weeks before people in my country were compelled to start taking the COVID-19 outbreak seriously, and now it just seems bleakly prescient. Still and all, though, this #lolcontent is for entertainment purposes only, as like everyone else I attempt to make my way through these weird-ass times with a sense of humor and maximum humanity.

The writing is entirely mine, unless otherwise cited, and all images are either from films I love or are attributed to their origin source/photographer within the content.
