  1. when i moved out of my parents house i apparently put all my old springsteen shirts that didn't really fit in a bag to throw out. my mom fished em out and made a similar thing for me. i'll post a pic asap.
  2. the irony, of course, is that the next verse describes the wall crowd pretty much perfectly.
  3. i don't feel at home in this world anymore was fun at times and interesting and surprising without being twisty. a little quirky without being cloyingly millenial (i think). if you enjoy such classic bobcat goldthwait films as god bless america, you'll love this flick.
  4. yeah i feel like i need to watch bad blood. i love a lot of the actors on it.
  5. i'ma watch this asap. @MagicRatAFC have you watched the film 'harlan county, usa'?
  6. i haven't watched this because, to the best of my understanding (it's all some of my friends will talk about lately), it's about him and his victims and their families, and not about the system that enabled, and supported, child rape. essentially, i don't like stories about this or that rapist priest and his particular proclivities. the story is the institution - the church, or in this case, hollywood - which has both a culture of pederasty and sexual violence, and a culture of silence. this film seems too voyeuristic, and not genuinely critical. on that subject, you should really watch a film called 'an open secret' about hollywood, by amy berg who also made 'deliver us from evil' about the church. for some reason, the one about hollywood was not distributed (her church film was nominated for an oscar, so it's not like she's a bad film maker) and is a little harder to find, but it's google-able.
  7. that's fantastic. i'd never seen it before.
  8. Musée des Beaux Arts (1940) - W.H. Auden About suffering they were never wrong, The Old Masters: how well they understood Its human position; how it takes place While someone else is eating or opening a window or just walking dully along; How, when the aged are reverently, passionately waiting For the miraculous birth, there always must be Children who did not specially want it to happen, skating On a pond at the edge of the wood: They never forgot That even the dreadful martyrdom must run its course Anyhow in a corner, some untidy spot Where the dogs go on with their doggy life and the torturer’s horse Scratches its innocent behind on a tree. In Breughel’s Icarus, for instance: how everything turns away Quite leisurely from the disaster; the ploughman may Have heard the splash, the forsaken cry, But for him it was not an important failure; the sun shone As it had to on the white legs disappearing into the green Water; and the expensive delicate ship that must have seen Something amazing, a boy falling out of the sky, had somewhere to get to and sailed calmly on.
  9. it's a very iannucci movie, in that it feels somewhat improvised and small, somehow, but it's surprisingly effective. laughs were few and far between though. hard to laugh with beria (but not impossible).
