today I saw four movies, met three directors, two actors, and went to a party. Every film today was wonderful. this is me being embarrassed but very pleased with Ernie Dingo, from Bran Nue Dae, an Australian aboriginal musical, if I have to define it. did I say I am having a great time? Go see Almovodar's Broken Embraces..tomorrow is bran nue dae..

I am going to live in the dark

I am seriously going to the Toronto International Film Festival this year. I spent my time on the train figuring out what to see and how it fit into the schedule. I really think they should give us some sort of application to do this. It's way hard.

train to montreal

it fascinates me how speed changes perception. the trees blur, the lake, the horizon is all you can focus on. what happens in the TGV in France? do you look only at the horizon?

the rules: Frizzle can chew a train track if Oscar can put her leash on godzilla, and go in and out of her crate. She is not allowed to play with cars so they are lined up safe on the chair. Frizzle has to catch things Oscar throws.

it worked really well but Frizz tried to take Godzilla for a walk.

we all got a shock when I went up to my studio last night and turned on the light. the top shot is totally out of focus, but I think it shows just how shocked that little guy was.

tramp art

(viewed 1067 times)
for paintist. I bought this at a yard (trans. boot) sale and later someone explained to me that it was tramp art--after reading this, it turns out that tramp art was not what I originally thought it was--payment during the old, not current American depression.
