Closer: The Abridged Script

Taking direction from Rod Hilton's The Editing Room, I have decided to make ridiculous fun of a movie that I recently saw by writing a script abridgement. If you liked Closer, I want you to know that I am sincerly grateful that this film brought you joy. However, you and I are just going to have to agree to disagree on this one. Nothing anyone will say will make me like this film, and nothing I will say will convince someone to hate it.

Except maybe if I say, "Why don't you watch Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and then come back and talk to me about Closer?"

But the people in the movie you suggested aren't so visually appealing.

This is a replacement LED strand for Current USA Orbit and Satallite fixtures. This is an LED that will require you to manually re-wire the LED into the fixture. It comes with wire ties.
