According to the Birmingham Post, a misshelved copy of the acclaimed Dan Clowes graphic novel GHOST WORLD has created a mini-scandal at the library.
The best part of the DareDevil DVD so far is the Frank Miller interview: " I love beauty, I don't care about pretty. "
Jeremy Irons might just be in a decent movie again.
Is Woody Allen trying to go mainstream?
I sang "Narcolepsy" to myself when I couldn't fall asleep the other night.
" stay with me under these waves, tonight.
be free for once in your life tonight. "
I live in these apartments called Abbey Road. The street I live on is called Penny Lane. The administration decided to put this up:
I hadn't even noticed. Last week when Lela and Kathleen came over to watch Sex and The City, they pointed it out. It was the first time I saw the show with someone yelling out "show some dick!"
If my heart's soaking wet
boy your boots can leave a mess
Come on in now, wipe your feet on my dreams
I uploaded a scan of my Japanese Ghost World Poster, I love the back of it, with all their outfits. I don't have this "Lolita" one, but I like it too.
Nick Cave Interview from Creem, thanks to Kim for the heads up. Without meaning to, my Music DVD aqusitions shall continue with The Cure: Trilogy DVD. My ticket for ACL Festival arrived, yet I know no one who is going. Looking fowards to R.E.M., Spoon, The Dandy Warhols, Bright Eyes and Liz Phair.
I did go from wanting to be someone now
I'm drunk and wearing flip - flops on Fifth Avenue
And you said watch my head about it
Baby you said watch my head about it
...not only am I lonely but alone. I am like an eye dangling by a few nerves from a man’s socket, and I long for detachment or to be part of the body whole, anything but blind useless pain. I have not given up by any means so don’t let me depress you. There are insights to be gained from the tedious chaos. I could do so without such an education but since I have no choice I might as well learn. Laughter is a first in the face of the gods and I will make those heavenly faces bloody and blue
The Whole Wide World DVD comes out next week. I also want to watch "Ma femme est une actrice'" ( because Ludivine Sagnier is in it) and "Guinevere". I get asked what the movie is about all the time becuase I have the poster in my apartment. The most concise version would be: Art + Humbert Humbert.
The second "Fables" trade paperback comes out today. I've been waiting for a while. I think the cover is gorgeous:
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely eyes,
lonely face, lonely lonely in your place.
Ah you loved me as a loser, but now you're worried that I just might win
You know the way to stop me, but you don't have the discipline
How many nights I prayed for this, to let my work begin
Saw "Swimming Pool" and loved it. Heard Pulp's "Trees" while at lunch at P.F. Changs and now I need to find that album, I feel like giving it another chance.
beautiful loser warm hearts have let you down
beautiful loser warm hearts have left you
Sofia Coppola + Scarlett Johansson + Bill Murray + Japan = I'm going to love this film.
I feel desolate. I feel like The Bends. "I wish, I wish that something would happen" . This morning I got a new CD to listen to on the way to work. Zooropa. On my way back I realized it was 10 years ago this summer that it came out. Its the first U2 album I got the day it came out. Half that summer was anticipation for it to come out. The rest was driver ed. I liked the LXG movie and don't get all the bad reviews it got. Alan Moore is a genius and he knows what's going on.
"I'm a burning hearth," he said
"People see the smoke
But no one comes to warm themselves
Randomly, from clicking on a link from 10000K, I ended up on the homepage of a photographer who took a Cat Power picture I used in one of my collages. Neverwhere is coming out on DVD, I barely remember watching an episode or two. DVD aquisition: Bjork: Royal Opera House. It is filmed really well and it has its highlights but there's too much Verperstine songs for my taste. That's my Wolverine Pez. I think I got it from Lela along with X-Men chocolate.
To end my very stressfull work week, I'm accenting my cube. It wasn't until now that I noticed that this week's themes made it to my wall.
Neil's creation Tim Hunter + Andy and Alfred postcard I got from Carolyn.
Japan + Andy's Superman postcard I got from Brooke.
And a new collage, of course.
I need to get Neil's new cd, which reminds me; I guess it's been like 10 years since " Angels and Visitations" came out. I love that book. The size of it, the art. He needs to do another one like that.
I guess I have a very loose interpretation of work, because I think that just being alive is so much work at something you don't always want to do. -Andy Warhol
I really want to go to Japan.
Eisely had an article in the Chronicle. I hope they come to Austin soon, or I may just see them in Dallas if I end up going up there to go see "Swimming Pool"
I've got no home in this world

Clowes explains the film's title, "The America we live in is disappearing, bulldozed under our feet and constantly rehabbed and remodeled. It also refers more personally to the characters and the friendships that they've lost."
