Sina Salimi

We are living in "strange" times. We will all grow into wrinkled grumpy grandpas and grandmas someday, and there will be grandchildren waiting to hear stories about our time. There's enough unbelievable things happening in the world for us to never stop talking when the time comes, but I hope that day, I can hand my grandchildren a couple of DVDs (or whatever weird platform they will be watching films on in the future) and say: "Alright, grandpa's tired, he's gonna go to sleep and slowly die. Just watch some funny stuff grandpa has made, back when people and things were amazing."
