commented on Something Else to Thank Charles Ramsey For...
with a film career that never got out of second gear and a limited and narrow writing style so self-congratulatory no other outlet would consider paying for it, i find it odd that charles consistently chooses to shit where he eats.
charles, who's going to employ you once the stranger has had enough of your three narratives? no one in LA will care about knox, neo-liberalism, or that library.
commented on I Hate the Beacon Hill Library, and You Should Too
long live the beacon hill branch library.
not because it's good or bad, but because it keeps charles awake at night and forces him to sweat and gnash his teeth every time he walks by it. it's mere existence poisons his soul. his children fear it. he'll never have a sober night, knowing it's out there... housing books.
charles can live anywhere on earth, but that building will most certainly outlive him, and possibly everything he ever loved.
the fucking gall of that building... it lives to shit on one man's hopes and dreams. and to prevent books from getting rained on. but mostly, to shit on one man's hopes and dreams.
commented on ‘Beware of Mr. Baker’
watched this on amazon instant video this week. i'm not gonna lie, it's some compelling shit.
not to just straight-up compare two music docs that have nothing to do with each other side-by-side, but i watched "sound city" the night before, and found it to be constantly self-referential and overly long. "baker" was tight and well presented and full of better footage. i also developed a bit of respect for clapton, never thought that would happen...
