Today’s post is brought to you by reality and the letter “Awesome.” Guns and movies, movies and guns.

How interesting that our concept of reality is created by movies that then attempt to mirror reality based on the concept of reality learned from movie watching.

Reminds me of what Hemingway said about The red Badge of Courage, indirectly: “Tolstoi made the writing of Stephen Crane on the Civil War seem like the brilliant imagining of a sick boy who had never seen war but had only read the battles and chronicles and seen the Brady photographs that I had read and seen at my grandparents’ house.

And how many movie folk actually own and shoot guns?

Interesting.
