    His films signaled the start of the ski season, even when there was no snow. He made us all want to live out of a van in the parking lot at the base of a mountain before the mountain became a resort, and some of us did.

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.
