DIY DOUBLE FEATURE: HARRY AND TONTO and INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS | Have Marmalade, Will Travel.

Watch HARRY AND TONTO...


then watch INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS...


...  and think about loss.

Think about the inevitability of loss.
Think about how that sometimes makes personal reinvention a necessary.
Think about what you can learn from inconvenient travel companions - be they a gorgeous marmalade cat or not; be it a brief road trip, cradle-to-grave, or something inbetween.

This may not sound like a super fun DIY Double Feature, but it's not bad and will probably prove useful, so just suck it up and do it.

It's a fact of life.  We're always losing.  We're all losers.
It's probably best to make friends with that idea sooner than later.
