If I'm writing this, it must mean I'm not there.


I got out of work, and in plenty of time, so since I was half way there, I decided to go. Looked for parking, but couldn't find anything, so I bite the big one and pay the $5 lot. That thing was sold out loooooooooooong before I ever got there. And it was completely unorganized. I checked in downstairs, but was told the email RSVP people were to go upstairs. I climb the steps... and all of the city of Westwood is in a line that snakes upon itself. I see something about tickets and I'm looking where to get them. I go back down and ask. They say they're not needed for the Filter/email people. He says the line is so long, I probably won't get in, but it shouldn't be long before I find out for sure. The guys in front of me don't have tickets either. So I stand in the line, which I think is the end... and wait... and wait... and wait... Then this guy and girl cut in front of me saying that this is the line for the ticket holders. I tell him it's all one line, but he says different...blah, blah, blah. The two guys ended up leaving. Then the line moves, and when I get to the front, what do you know, it's the line for ticket holders. I knew getting in the other line, where ever that was, was gonna be all for naught, so I leave. I walked around hoping my friend Silias would spot me and let me in with him, but no. The Limited Edition Lynch memorabilia was all stuff you could buy from the website, without the S&H charge.

The good part was that it only took me 45 minutes to get home instead of the usual hour and a half it would normally from that area.


This is why I don't go to these things.

I had a similar experience. I got out of work at a reasonable time and got there what I thought was an ok time: 6:22. It obviously wasn't a good time at all. I thought it was such a shame I was a bit disapointed. I was looking for you everywhere Mac, and I don't know if you saw me but I was in the red amoeba T-shirt meandering by the memorbilia table. It wasn't a complete bust. I picked up 2 free postcards. I already have met and talked with him a couple of times and have seen IE twice so I left after about 20 minutes of just walking around and seeing the complete disorganization that was that event.
Another high point the check girl at the LA fitness parking building let me go out for free after explaing my pridictament.

I kept thinking that I should have skipped work....but no. Anyway, I've been trying to live with any regrets.

I was by the bar in what I thought was the end of the line.

You two probably walked by me.  My roommate went down at 4:30 and stood in line.  At 5 when the b.o. opened there were about forty people, so he was able to get himself a ticket and then go back through and get me a ticket.  The reservations didn't mean anything, one ticket per person.  There was a second line for the old theater.  Both lines could hold 250 people.  I was in a black Portishead Records t-shirt with brown pants.  We were on the stairs, and I was at the bar twice.

At any rate the Q&A was impersonal and nothing came from it.  After that the Valley Girls from the film did on stage the dance they do in the film. It was kind of awkward.  But before the show Lynch played a song with another guy to 'set the mood for Inland Empire' and it was a very mood setting song.

So you didn't miss too much.  But Saturday is Battleship Potemkin!
Raven haired Linda and her school mate Linnea are studying after school, when their desires take over and they kiss and strip off their clothes. They take turns fingering and licking one another's trimmed pussies on the desks, then fuck each other to intense orgasms with colorful vibrators.

Yeah, author of that article, I'm a big fan of Lost Highways, too.

As well as The Twin Peaks and Wild of Heart.

Maybe every day is Saturday morning.

this is an epic rightmare, and Lynch's big fish are pirahnas chewing at your face while your heart races - and in the in-love way, not the shit-I'm-dying way.

That doesn't say anything, really, but I hope I'm forgiven for having a muddled impression of this film. I might have nothing insightful to say about it, at least not until second viewing.

Best Buy breaks INLAND EMPIRE DVD Street Date
Source: Dugpa

I've been told that a number of Best Buy stores have already put the new INLAND EMPIRE DVD on their shelves which is supposed to street next Tuesday. If you are looking for a treat this weekend, try looking at your local Best Buy. I have received a copy of the DVD and all I can say is that it is one of the most extensive presentations of a David Lynch film on DVD EVER.

There's a DVD store here in NYC that released INLAND EMPIRE this past Monday (they don't want me to mention their name)...I grabbed the last copy.  The DVD, my friends, is astounding.  The film, we all know about...but the extras are fantastic.  Since watching the film (which looks GREAT, a lot more beautiful than I remember on the large screen), I've watched LYNCH 2 (I think it's additional material from "LYNCH 1" -- the documentary that's coming out later this year) and DAVID LYNCH COOKS QUINOA, also a couple of the STORIES and a few of the STILLS.  No spoilers from me...all I'll say is that after watching LYNCH 2 and QUINOA we get to know David Lynch better than we've ever known him before.  A true delight...insight into the man, the artist and his process.  You're in for a real treat.  Watching more later tonight.

thanks! i did too.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.
