this is the most impressive crop circle i've ever seen pictures of.

unexpectedly, "mullholland drive" is the most normal film i've seen in the past few days.

i just got back from the brattle theater where i saw the happiness of the katakuris which is a musical (!!!) about a family who run a guest house and people keep dying around them, and dead or alive which is a crime flick about chinese gangs and the yakuza and cops. except with clowns and bestiality and troma levels of gross-out and 10 minutes of groovy stylized violence at the beginning and 10 minutes of progressively freakier fucked up violence (but not in the way you expecte it, no really) at the end.

so, claudia and i watched mullholland drive last night.

aside from the excellence of seeing naomi "jet girl" watts engaging in tawdry nookie with larua harring, it does seem as though lynch said "okay, i can't use this tv pilot as a tv pilot so let's take all the weirdness that might've happened in a full season of tv and pack it into the rest of the film to get it up to release length."

i mean, what was that film about, anyways?

http://www.bullatomsci.org/issues/1997/mj97/mj97ilnitsky.html is an article from the bulletin of atomic scientists about tunnel hackers in moscow.

it's getting really weird over there, i guess. or maybe it always has been.

You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won't have it! Is that clear? You think you've merely stopped a business deal? That is not the case. The Arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country, and now they must put it back! It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity. It is ecological balance. You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations! There are no peoples! There are no Russians! There are no Arabs! There are no third worlds! There is no West! There is only one holistic system of systems; one vast, interwoven, interacting, multivaried, multinational dominion of dollars!

It is the international system of currency which determines the vitality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic and subatomic and galactic structure of things today! And you have meddled with the primal forces of nature! And you will atone! Am I getting through to you, Mr. Beale? You get up on your little 21 inch screen and howl about America and democracy. There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM and ITT, and AT&T, and DuPont, Dow, Union Carbide, and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today.

The world is a business, Mr. Beale. It has been since man crawled out of the slime. Our children will live, Mr. Beale, to see that perfect world in which there's no war or famine, oppression or brutality -- one vast and ecumenical holding company, for whom all men will work to serve a common profit, in which all men will hold a share of stock -- all necessities provided, all anxieties tranquilized, all boredom amused. And I have chosen you, Mr. Beale, to preach this evangel.

i like to watch Network every few years. i'm always amazed at how well it holds up.

America the Burning
(Sung to America the Beautiful)

O wicked land of sodomites
Your World Trade Center's gone
With crashing planes and burning flames
To hell your souls have flown
God showed His wrath to thee!
He cursed this land
With his own hand
And showed his sovereignty

it's the "click here to download mp3" that really makes it staggeringly surreal.

today's exciting conspiracy theory!

there's a hidden ammendment to the constitution saying that lawyers are constitutionally barred from serving in government.
