Saw the American Gangster screening. Liked it. Saw The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. I don't think I can adequately describe how much I loved this movie. Like, with every fiber of my being, and my eyes kind of welled up because it was overwhelming. I made a token attempt on Huffington, however.

Very excited about this Haneke retrospective. Going.

Grrr...that's not out yet in St. Louis. I saw the new Resident Evil instead, which was pretty forgettable. In fact I don't even remember what happened in it. Did I even go?

Ahoy. I just read your story, "Mammals," on Identity Theory. Very amazing. I like the way it kind of falls down the page. Rasputin couldn't help himself, and none of the rabbits could either. I have always wondered about people who work in those places. You cannot avoid having a teratoma and neither you nor the teratoma cannot avoid being vivisected. It all seems so inevitable.

Ian-- i'm not sure if you will like Jesse James. i think you will but i'm not sure. you should go when it comes out. i am planning to see an american gangster screening on monday. i bet we will both like that.

"lostcheerio"-- i'm glad you liked it. i wondered about people like that too. there really must be jobs where you just going an put makeup in animals' eyes every day. what's up with those people? are any of them vegetarians?

I was iffy on the American Gangster trailer until that fucking Kanye West "Heart of the City" beat came in. Then I was like, I guess I have to see this movie when it comes out. Whoever selected that track for the trailer had a stroke of genius.

In a sense I feel hesitant to say this--as if it were a suggestion of some homoerotic impulse prowling my subconscious--but I've never seen a Brad Pitt movie I didn't like.

American Gangster looks great, though I felt a pang of heartache at seeing a late 60's Mustang exploded in the trailer.

then you'll probably dig this. pitt's really got a presence in this. he's like a strange, scary bear wandering through the snow.
