In This Twilight

Interesting apocalyptic video. The NIN "Year Zero" album features a lot of themes associated with your nemesis Cheney and his raping of the planet, everything anti-"Sustainability, Equity, Development"

Cheney could not be more unsustainable. He plunders. Equity and Cheney in the same sentence almost rips a linguistic black hole. He "develops" nothing in the context of the word at this blog, which I say is "growth."

Did you not say that you would write a review of Lynch's Inland Empire?

Sirocco has had at least a month to watch the film. Forget the lazy loafer and write your review. I want to compare experiences. Dustin's too young for such a film anyway, and Liza's female.

Tell us about Inland Empire.

Hear! Hear! Yes, write a review about Inland Empire and explain what the F. That wacko film cost me real nookie. She was weird for a week.

I have been banned from film selection responsibility for the rest of our relationship, I think.

In your explanation, be sure to include the rabbit heads and the guy with the light bulb in his mouth.

Navigator,
I'm still trying to understand "Mulholland Drive" which is probably as straightforward as Lynch gets. I think it's cruel to not have a director's commentary on the DVD. I'm only willing to expend so much effort trying to understand arty stuff, and beyond that I want someone to just explain it to me.

I will probably never see "Inland Empire" especially after doctor's comments.

I like this video, and I'm starting to like NIN. "Capital G" is my favorite.

don't worry about spoiling anything for me. I'm not sure when I'll have the time. I really don't feel like trying to explain what's happening in the film to my wife while simultaneously trying to understand it myself. alone time comes at a premium, and is super rare, so you may as well satisfy doc and nav, I won't be upset. In any case consuming the kind of media lynch produces is an experience left to the consumer. While I'm interested to hear other peoples take on it, I'm unlikely to come away with the same impressions.

Yeah, I hate it when artists leave it up to me to interpret their work.

Ha!

Liza,
You should purchase "Year Zero" which has Capital G as well the above. As Navigator says, the album is all about the Bush/Cheney nightmare. Tracks 2,4,6,7, and 15 are fantastic. The album is like the primal scream of this blog. Everything this blog stands for is pretty much captured by what the album points to.

I'll write about Empire sometime in next couple weeks. Empire is like Mulholland Drive cubed. As Sirocco noted, Doc, you were amply warned. A man showing the film to his wife borders on domestic violence.

Every woman I know without exception (not one) violently DESPISES the film.

anon,

Cool link, I had no idea about all the background stuff (I don't get out much). It kind of reminds me of that william gibson book, "pattern recognition."

Great video. Great blog. Your mix of national and local politics, pure blogger poetry, and out of the blue material is refreshing and interesting. A review of Lynch's latest film by someone with your brains. This I have gotta see.

I'm female and I thought the film was terrific. You're right, though, most women squirm as her grip on reality unravels during the descent.

I admit I am not considered a particularly "normal" person. I really liked "The Hours".

carmine,

Normal people do not read this blog.

If you don't believe me, read

Anon,
Can we just say that x4mr has a broad range of interests and unique ways of expressing himself? Perhaps you've noticed that his writings skills run the full gamut from profound and beautiful to harsh and lowdown.

You can say that again, Liza. I went to those links.

The blog is all over the place. I get what you mean. I noticed you commented at A Class with No Cake. It's even more true today.

Have you read Reproductive Freedom?

You're right, anon. X4mr is not normal.

Carmine,
Yes, I've read the whole blog starting with it's inception. x4mr and a number of us who comment here met on a couple of other local political blogs a few months prior to the 2006 primary elections. x4mr started his own blog later that year.
