- I need a utility to filter some text, like awk but more modern regexp.
- Start writing utility.
- Discover I wrote this exact utility in 2006, and forgot about it. Apparently I did something with it in 2009. I may have blogged about it on my old site, too lazy to go searching.
- Clean it up for Python 3.7 and release.
Utility/Filter 1.1 can be downloaded, put it in your ~/bin or /usr/local/bin folder and call it with
BSD license, so do what thou wilt with it, but don’t be a dick (uploading my stuff to github as if it’s yours is dickish), OK?
The premise for this does not prepare you at all for what is to come, but perhaps the initial quote by H.P.Lovecraft will. On the surface, it’s two escaped survivors of a Heaven’s Gate-like cult, getting a videotape message and going back to the commune and finding old friends.
Then they see things in the sky and the water, and beyond the totem poles. Then they receive more messages. Then the truth of everything is revealed.
This is maybe the best strange tale I’ve ever seen as a movie.
The older brother’s acting is wooden and fixed in a permanent blank stare and smirk, the younger one’s a little better, the other characters are either stoic or insane, or underacting or overacting, but it’s the story that drives this.
I don’t like the final scene, there’s too much closure and that’s not what this story’s about.
But you must absolutely watch this.
