*waves hello to all, ready to fail with you* I already had failure of the laundry room, and the delay meant that I had to put "Mr. Giant Man" on my phone. So then the next piece was playing and my nice neighbor came to chat with me and her eyes almost fell out of her head at the soundz (I turned it off.) Go go go Organum!

Every time I think about quitting the Criterion channel - as it's somewhat spendy and I don't watch it nearly enough - they add something incredibly cool and I don't.

Rich in Washington, for me, it's the guilt I feel with having Criterion. I waited and lusted for years to see Kieślowski's Dekalog after seeing "A Short Film About Killing" at the NYFF, and now it's just there, available, all the time, and my lazy ass does not watch it. . .

@miss g, ha that's the page i pulled up to remember the full quote from, and was quite interesting! admittedly i've never read "worstward ho!" but i remember seeing the quote on the back of a žižek book and it stuck with me

Buffalo Bills Quarterback Josh Allen, *L* indeed my friend who gave me the subscription and I end up doing it that way out of desperation. That's how I got to watch the amazing "2046" Wong Kar-Wei Sept 30th.
  3:51pm
Miss G:

This Black Sun Productions Percettive Riflessioni is for sure my mood today, wow. (bukowski. I liked how the writer there said "As O’Connell notes, Samuel Beckett was interested in failure, full stop. Not failure as a necessary path toward riches, or fame, or (everyone’s favorite buzzword) 'innovation.' Just failure."

@missg i missed 2046 as i chose Blow Out and The Long Goodbye over that (and Anatomy of a Murder + Paprika). one was a great choice. the other one I basically fell asleep during

It’s the rootin’ tootin’ battle to end all battles: the accordion falling down an elevator shaft vs. the marbles in a blender! Who will fail first?!?😸

BBQJA ah, I caught The Long Goodbye earlier, sampled Paprika, "captured" *cough* Blow Out for later. Then I began to watch "2046" in small doses as it's rather trippy.

  4:25pm
Miss G:

*L* YES! That was totally intentional! Because, I know all about that world! (not at all. In fact I was just remembering the 80s and being given what was supposedly this great kind of cocaine and I thought "gee this is dumb, I'd rather have an Obetrol.")

@chresti, just read your comment at the top of the show, I hope your week gets better! And that is wild that people _play tennis_ after smoking crack. ..I really didn't know it was still a thing but a friend gave me this book _Drug Use for Grown-Ups_ by Dr. Carl L. Hart and I guess he explains it.
