I was born in South Carolina, and raised in Charleston. At least one of my ancestors (Col. Roger Moore, and yes, I've heard all the Bond jokes) owned a plantation and slaves, and was a colonel in the Civil War.
And these things make him a bastard. Who lost as well, thank god.
The only people in the South who are into this "heritage" thing are rednecks. The same people who didn't own slaves and died for the planters, and to this day are poor because of the descendants of the planters, who are still there.
I thought McCain was a bastard to let the vote go forward. But he did say at the time he would not vote in favor of it just the same, and Murkowski and Collins were already known to be firmly against this. Of course they could not resist going straight for it and getting drunk with potential blood, because they don't just want the tax cut; they don't just want to get rid of an entitlement, or just Obama's legacy.
The man who brought you zombies has died and, ironically, rests in peace.
But there was a lot more to his work. Here for instance is what I consider his greatest film, MARTIN. About a fellow who thinks he's a vampire. Is he? Well, the question becomes, does it matter in the end? This is a film where he questions the horror genre itself. Have a look.
TWIN PEAKS: Last Night's Floor-Sweeping Scene So can we talk about the floor-sweeping scene?
This would be an example of what meditation does to Lynch's view of narrative, I think, which seems over time to have more and more in common with John Cage. Also that Lynch understands TV induces various types of trance states.
My Work Is About to Be Censored Out of Print! Your Help Needed! (UPDATED) Update: Thanks to what Amazon tells me were a lot more emails than I've had sales, I'm reinstated at Createspace so most of my print catalog is still live.
Except that MARTHA (which they'd left up for 7 years) is banned entirely, and Kindle, though they will stock prose dinosaur porn happily, has also erased me. So you should go to Comixology and Google Play for digital instead.
Thank you for your help. Previous post follows.
Amazon really are boring bastards- maybe time they stopped selling books and focused on groceries. https://t.co/TkRJCrQUwA
Commission: "Mikki Series" - Three So Far (UPDATED)
A series of glam (mostly) bondage illustrations I'm doing as a private commission.
Happily I can show you the images with the kind permission of "Mikki,"* the stunning patroness (and sell them as prints/posters; click on images to find out more, and to enlarge), who is the subject of the pictures; I can say no more about it. Enjoy. (updated; newest at top)
Also, last night's TWIN PEAKS: Still loved it, but I'm starting to get a bit over the Confused Coop thing. Remember Ben Horne's Civil War? Feeling a bit like that. But I'll stick with it because anything Lynch does is interesting to me.
Patti Rocks (David Burton Morris, 1988) starring Twin Peaks' Chris Mulkey & John Jenkins--My Teacher
A favorite from when I was a college student in Chicago. One of my teachers at the DePaul Theatre School(aka the Goodman School of Drama) that very year, John Jenkins (who taught movement) starred in and co-wrote it, along with Chris Mulkey, later Norma's criminal hubby Hank Jennings on TWIN PEAKS--partly on the strength of his performance here. He took us to the opening night, which was awesome. I later had this on VHS and wore it out watching it.
Glad I don't have any children, myself. Sorry if you do, because they will all suffer horribly in the world this will leave them. The GOP certainly doesn't give a damn about the children they want to force into the world.
But that's obvious, so it's a cliche, so it must not matter. Anyway, we're only talking two more generations.
Tomorrow I'll wake up in time to see the stupidest world leader EVER decide the fate of the planet.
GOP Cannot Even Accomplish Evil, Let Alone Governing Only now does the Republican Party understand what eight years of building a party based entirely on opposition to not only the president, but the government itself and every concept of governing as understood by civilization, will do.
Trump betrays his communications staff every time he opens his mouth; it is clearly impossible for them to build anything like credibility with the media, who are now quite conditioned to spot lies from this administration, as it can always be assumed that's their first resort. If someone said to Trump, "Isn't it true you're just not smart enough to have plotted with Russia?" Trump would not only instantly admit everything, he would brag.
If you stay at this White House one moment longer now, your risk of being indicted grows.
