But anyway, I want to talk about 2 things.
That ghostly face would be the cover of Matthew Dear’s latest, Black City. I came across a little song called “Slowdance”, which you should listen to here. it gave me a creepy chilly good feeling. Let me know what you think. And Holly, I know it may not appeal to your ADD sensibilities, but just let it play. All the way through.
Secondly, I had a little discussion last night with Shogoriffic at the Redwood, which is small bar tucked away in Capitol Hill that i rather like. And we conversed about movies. Somehow, we got on the topic of movie budgets. Which really blows my mind, really. It’s nothing profound, it’s no big deal, but…should a movie really cost 300 million dollars to make? Is it just me, or is that a badonkadonk load of cash? It’s fucking out of hand if you ask me. SO, in conclusion of this earth-shattering realization, I am doing something. I am BOYCOTTING any and all films that cost more than 5o million to make. I know, i know. big fucking deal. BUT THINK ABOUT THIS: a low budget film has to come up with more creative ways to tell it’s story and appeal to it’s audience. You tell me what movie is better-Fargo or Pirates of the Carribean? And if you vote for the latter, we may not be on speaking terms for awhile.
Happy Second to the last day of the week!
