Thomas Moronic presents ... EVERYTHING IS FUCKED # 4
Hey. If you check this blog regularly, you must have gathered by now that I'm a huge fan of what the gif can and can't do. Thomas Moronic is a veritable gif auteur, and he's back with volume four of his investigative series EVERYTHING IS FUCKED, and I'm pleased as punch, duh, and I hope you will be too, in your respective fashions. It would be cool if you told him what you think and why or how or even how not maybe. Thanks! And thanks mightily to the maestro. ** Adrienne White, Hi, A. Cool. Drops a ball of gumbo? Literally? That's clever. Does it get eaten? I think your NYE sounds just dandy. It beat mine. I had the noise and lit up air things but no midget. NYE here isn't all that, or not as done-up as you would think Paris would dole out. Just fireworks over the Eiffel Tower and some illegal ones being set off here and there. And they close the metro down early that night for some bizarre reason. Honestly, I don't what Paris is thinking on NYE. But it was okay. ** les mots dans le nom, Hi. Oh, the food thing, oops. I guess it would be like if you talked about all the amazing clothes you were buying if you bought amazing clothes, given my clothing allergies. I think I did miss your last comment. That bracelet is terrific. I just spent a minute or more enlarging and caressing it with my eyes. Gorgeous. Yeah, sorry, Paris looks amazing, it's a fact, but I think all the Xmas stuff comes down tonight, and then it'll just look amazing in its usual way, and I won't be waxing about it as much. Wow, is the Fujiko Nakaya who made that 1979 video the same FN I know and love? I've never seen that. I'll have to ask her about that. Wow, if so. Thank you so much! ** _Black_Acrylic, Hi, Ben. Too cool for a school is a legit thing. Bands use that quality as a thing to work with all the time, and I think it's kind of interesting how Jarmusch works with that. Sorry about Leeds. ** David Ehrenstein, That's an interesting way to think about it. Hunh. Dude, very cool both about the Hollywood Reporter article and the talk with Debbie Reynolds. Holy shit! ** Sypha, Cool that the post synced up with your familiarity. Your list was mega, bow-worthy. 4000 pages?! ** Jeffrey Coleman, HNY to you, Jeff! Good to see you! Oh, right, the legal marijuana in Colorado thing. How is that going to work? Will it be sold at, like, 7-11s and in vending machines and stuff? Trippy. 'LSD's quieter and more autistic brother' is the best way to put it. Yeah, I can get mildly paranoid if someone's smoking it in the same room with the windows closed and if enough filters inside me accidentally sometimes. Good, thank you, about the easier access to Martin's book in the States. I'll share that for sure and right now. Everyone, the awesome d.l. Jeffrey Coleman is about to help those of you who live in the USA more easily and inexpensively acquire a copy of Martin Bladh's book 'DES', which is something I recommend that you do. Anyway, Jeffrey alerts you to the fact that you can order the book here at a cool place called The Ajna Offensive, and thereby get around the trouble and expense of ordering it from Europe. I was just thinking a lot about 'Fable' and how incredible it is the other day. I don't know David Chaim Smith, but I'll use that link and go find out who he is and what his thing is. Thanks a lot, Jeff. You take care too. ** Flit, Hi, Flit! It goes good, pal. I can tell you're back to writing. That was some charged, delicious text right there. Oh, shit, yeah, I'm so sorry about those losses. I mean, you know how I feel about heroin, and that just ... yeah, I'm so sorry. God, I hate that fucking drug. I don't hate many things, but that's a big one. Yeah, 'R Plus Seven' is really funny. I think so too. Glad it got to you. Sweet. Nice day to you, bro. ** Allesfliesst, Abstaining from not abstaining is the same thing or something. Sounds most pleasant. Great, thank you a lot for those links. I hadn't seen either one of those for some weird reason. It's so easy to think that Google search knows everything like your doctor does(n't). Yeah, thanks, Kai. I'll go over there in depth shortly. 2013 was my best year ever, yeah. And I think this year might even beat it. Crazy shit. ** MyNeighbourJohnTurtorro, I know. I thought the same thing: I haven't done a Jarmusch post? Weird. 'Dead Man' is my fave too. I like 'Ghost Dog'. I like the early ones. I have a fondness for 'Broken Flowers', but then I'm in the 'Bill Murray is God' camp. I liked the new one quite a bit. His 'anthology' films like 'Night on Earth' and 'Coffee and Cigarettes' I don't like at all. They bug me. My email, sure, of course: firstname.lastname@example.org. Excited that you're excited about that post. Thanks a ton. Unfortunately, I don't think that anything I'm working on will be something you will see this year. The novel has a ways to go. The current plan for the 'porn' film is to have it edited into its final form in December. I'm also writing Gisele Vienne's next theater piece about ventriloquism. And I'm co-writing (with Zac) a film that Gisele is going to direct, which is tentatively set to be shot in October. And there's the book Zac and I are doing about Scandinavian theme parks, but that seems to be stalled out for the moment. The only things of mine that'll see the light this year are the poetry book and maybe a book that Martin Bladh wants to publish that's a facsimile of a scrapbook I made in the early 80s. Anyway, thanks a lot for asking, man. What's on your agenda? ** Steevee, Hi. I don't know about a US opening date. It seems like there must be one by now. Curious to hear what you think of the film. ** Bill, Oh, I just told MNJT the things I'm working/behind on. Especially behind on the ventriloquism theater piece, which is proving to be a very tough nut, but I think I might have figured out a solution. The new Jarmusch is really nice, I think. See you what you think. How's the work going? ** Rewritedept, Hi. I did know that he did vocals on that. When he does music stuff, it's often quite interesting and wilder than I would have imagined. I imagined his music forays would be more Lounge Lizards-y or something for some stupid reason. Your NYE sounds pleasant. 'Life Aquatic', yes! My New Years Day was as quiet as my NYE. It was fine, no big deal. Love and whatnot back to you, boomerang-style. ** Postitbreakup, Hi, Josh! Happy New Year to you too! How are you? What's going on? ** Right. Back you go into TM's jittery onslaught, okay? See you tomorrow.
