Hello to All You Silent Cars on the Freeway. Nice Paint.

My eyes are remarkably sticky this morning. I went to bed with one of those incredibly bad headaches I'm still hesitant to call a migraine. It seems to mostly be gone now, but I wasn't able to sleep later than 9:30am, for no apparent reason. I get this weird feeling the headaches come from excessive bread consumption.

Yesterday wasn't productive. At the end of it, I went to Tim's house and played Oblivion for a couple hours and then came back here and watched Laura (1944). Again.

Hmm. Yep. Nothing else to say . . .

The Flowering Promise of a Canadian Perv

Now that Eastern Promises seems to be on top of the world, I keep seeing people referring to Cronenberg as a director previously best known for his horror movies of the 70s. Am I crazy, or were Scanners, Videodrome, and The Fly, all movies from the 80s, actually Cronenberg's best known films?

In any case, I'm dying to see Eastern Promises. It sounds like History of Violence, only better. Cronenberg seems to have a real knack for violent gangster pictures. I just hope he hasn't completely abandoned movies about people with alien perversions and bizarre, malevolent physical maladies.

Elsewhere in Viggo Mortensen news, did everyone catch Aragorn on The Colbert Report*? I want a Narsil.

*It's nice to see Comedy Central has a slightly more sensible way to view videos now. It was annoying when Viacom got huffy about YouTube and then forced us to wade through that stupid Motherlode bog.

Good Coffee


Am I the only one who thinks good coffee ought to smell like your own brain?

That's disgusting
Good coffee ought to smell like the brain of someone of the opposite sex (or, if you're gay, the same sex)
