So, last night I got to go to one of the most unique moments I can ever remember as far as moviegoing experiences, Crispin Hellion Glover's 'It is Fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE.' where the man himself spent an hour reading from and acting out several passages of his books and then showed this amazing film. It's essentially about Steven Stewart (a man with palsy confined to a wheelchair and who's speech is unintelligible) seducing, raping, and killing a series of women after smooth talking them and seducing them. It's a cop drama/murder mystery like nothing I've ever seen. I was crying with tears of laughter while biting thru my fingerless gloves the entire time. Unfortunately I think I was the only one that saw it as a comedy but who cares, I loved every second. Crispin then talked for over an hour and was very forthcoming about the film and his own life. Truly, truly an amazing nite....
Hmm, what else? Got to hang with my gallerists this weekend and talk about my show and was given an amazing proposition that I can't talk about on the internets but my head is officially blown. In the meantime I'm going to be done with these crocs in the next coupl'a days. This'll probably be the last thing I post on this particular piece but truly, truly it's my favorite thing I've done and that's rare that I enjoy a piece while I'm doing it...
My mom's in town and this might be my favorite conversation we've had in a long while (the first line's her)...
Remember that film about the dome?
There was a midget with no legs who rode atop a giant monster who smashed things the midget told him to.
Master Blaster from Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome
No, I don't think that's right.
Hmmm, AND I get to go see the new Judd Apatow film with Josh tonight and then get to see the new PT Anderson flick in a few days! I've never seen this many great movies back-to-back so consistently that I can ever remember.
Spent last weekend Christmas shopping, including a drive to the Torrance Japanese Mall! Pocky-rific!
I think that's it dear reader... talk soon.
