Monday morning random notes
Fellow Twin Peaks nuts: Don’t buy the new “gold box” DVD of the series. Its 10 discs do a good job of collating what’s available into one package (it’s convenient to have both the U.S. and international versions of the pilot, for example), but there are only a mere NINE MINUTES of deleted scenes, none of them particularly illuminating. This is only worth buying if you’re such a completist that you want to have to have the flyer for David Lynch-branded coffee.
Headline of the week (thanks, Eric)
I’m reading Don DeLillo’s Falling Man. It’s engaging, except for the fragmented, repetitive, unrealistic, topic-sentence dialogue. For some reason, all these characters talk like they’re characters in a Don DeLillo novel. What’s up with that?
I’m biased, of course, but if you want a blog that’s more than just random musings you should be reading Jane Kokernak’s Leaf-Stitch-Word. In it, you’ll learn, among other things, that Henry David Thoreau was a blogger, sort-of.
Back to work…
