labor day - no labor

i can't believe this - i had tons of workshops and junk all week until friday afternoon, but this weekend? not one show. not at CSz, not at iO, not with SC. it is amazing.

have a super bad average cold. maybe the timing is good on having a cold, though i'd rather be outside playing on these last days of summer. i will do something this weekend. i am slightly regretting not going home to columbus to visit family, but didn't fully realize csz would be dark for the move to the CCPA this weekend. nice.

because of this, i'm blowing a lot of time. tons of needed rest, lots of movies. just saw Brick, a film noir essentially mapped over a current high school. this movie rules. it was acclaimed at Sundance in 2005. if you haven't seen it, see it. none of it is hokey, it's just really great and somehow believable. also saw Crumb today as i was severely medicated; also good. Kinda sad. It's a documentary, which i didn't realize when i netflixed it, by David Lynch. R. Crumb drew for Zap! Comix and was huge in starting underground comics. he's weird and interesting, sort of a perv, and his entire family essentially were recluses. i saw american splendor a year or two ago and meant to get this for a while. worth seeing if you like documentaries.

Pop Culture Police! Pull over!

"Smoke" has Harvey Keitel and William Hurt. I believe you mean "Brick." I've heard it's great.

Also, "Crumb" was directed by Terry Zwigoff not David Lynch, but Lynch was one of a half-dozen producers.

oh god! pop cultch! i really f-ed that up. i literally thought "brick" and wrote "smoke". i'll change that, but not the david lynch thing. for that, i'll just admit fault and leave it to show i'm a dumb.
