My dream last night.

Farm animals all lined up in the parking lot at my place of employment holding shotguns shouting ” FUCK YOUR PEACE! GET OUT OF THE CAR AND PAY MY GIRLFRIEND HER MONEY!” Next thing I knew instead of farm animals this kid I use to go to middle school with is standing there while swarms of hornets cover the space behind him.

Chevy Chase The Rabbit Down The Rabbit Hole.

I sat in a mall this morning. The Montebello mall. I don’t believe in Heaven or Hell but I can only imagine that a Mall was created on those concepts put together. Where I sat for a brief moment while I caught my breath from the walking and the pretzel eating and the soda drinking and the eye contact avoiding I could see an older man caught in what looked like a serious dilemma. He seemed stressed as he stood at the entrance of FYE. A store that sells 30 dollar DVD’s and CD’s. Basically a useless waste of a store unless your in the market for Hunger Game cut outs. This man was not. This man was interested in the 3 dollar DVD bargain bin. He had found 2 choices that he held in his hands. At that point out of boredom I moved in closer to find out what 2 great film finds he had in his hands. What 2 films could he have found that would cause his body to tense and sweat with indecisiveness? He stood there mumbling to himself and as I moved in closer I saw with a quick glance the first DVD.

The cover was one I had seen hundreds of times growing up and going to Blockbuster video to rent a movie and heading into the Comedy section I would make my way to the F section and he would alway be there no matter what. Chevy Chase wearing a baseball cap sitting on a lawnmower in cartoon form. ‘Funny Farm’ was the first DVD and at that point I could not imagine what the second would be. The Man caught me staring at him. I was so caught up in the ‘Funny Farm’ business that I lost myself for a moment. Why would he need to decide on ‘Funny Farm’? It’s only 3 dollars. I thought of buying a copy myself for it had been years since I had seen the film. Then I thought ” I don’t own a copy of ‘Fletch’ and Chevy Chase was pretty useless on SNL” At that moment he saw me and moved himself to a different part of the store. I followed by pretending to be interested in the bargain TV show DVD’s. I say pretend because the prices were to outrageous to be considered a bargain and I needed to see the other DVD this man was holding. Well, be careful what you wish for. The man rushed around to reveal the winner. Holding up the DVD like a trainer holds a boxer’s hand up after winning a championship title fight I saw the victor.

It has been a while since I have seen this film. When it was first released in 1999 I remember a very good friend of mine explaining to me how hilarious the film was. Even at a young age I knew better than to go see a Billy Crystal movie in the 90’s but being a huge fan of De Niro I decided to see the film. If you haven’t guessed yet, the film that the old man finally decided on was ‘Analyze This’, a funny film directed by the late great Harold Ramis. Now you might ask what does this all mean? What do the choices this man made have to do with your life? What does him picking’ Analyze This’ over ‘Funny Farm’ got to do with anything? I wish I knew.

I’d never taken a drug before Gummo, but as soon as that was over I started flirting with heroin, because making films was all I ever wanted, and once that was done I was just bored. And my problems, my violence, they all stem from boredom, and when I did that drug it was the first time I could just sit and feel blissful, you know? But in the end it’s a lie. So I went back to the anger. And I’m comfortable knowing that without the work I’d kill myself, because I feel like I’m here for one reason, and that’s to create.

I agree with Fassbinder who said, ‘revolution doesn’t belong on the cinema screen, but outside, in the world,’” Haynes said in the linear notes for Safe’s soundtrack. And as one of his best features, rather than handing his audience a solution or spelling out exactly what he was trying to say, he opted to show us and make us feel his motives and desires—’to give them the revolution is to deprive them of the necessity of creating their own. Viewers of film have extraordinary powers: they can make life out of reflections on the wall,” he said. And as someone who favors the work of directors such as Chantal Ackerman, who chooses to expose the moments most filmmakers would leave behind or cut out in order to allow the viewer to impress themselves into the storytelling and create a genuine curiosity, Safe was born out of a “strict opposition to current trends in movies,” and distaste for Hollywood’s “histrionics and technological gimmickry” which leave you numb.”

The Quiet Terror of Todd Haynes’ ‘Safe’

R.I.P.

It’s the shadowy whisper that brushes my leg
or sends you shooting it through my brain
It’s the way you back up into my veins

It’s a cruel world
But it’s cool

It’s the way you keep wearing me all on your clothes
or pull me back on my own bed
or let me see you getting changed

It’s a cruel world
But it’s cool

Well i’m out in california now
Ari gave me his new car
and all the girls are so champagne
I’m a high liver
I’m a slow burner

My life in 2013.

New Camera. New Reason To Plague The Internet.

I used to sit in my room and think like, what if someone had a gun to your head and you had no fingers, and they said to write a book about the history of, I don’t know, prostitution, and you have three hours to push away on that keyboard—what would that look like? And then I would just try to do it. Or let’s say someone duct-taped a tree branch to your hand and then gave you a huge bowl of ink to dip it in and said that you had thirty five minutes to render your version of the Mona Lisa on this canvas. A lot of it was just playing games with myself to see where it would go.
