Is it just me or is the Jurassic World 2 trailer shockingly bad?

Thank you! I'm very happy to hear that.

I really like your thoughts on Shasta's seduction scene, I left that out completely as I didn't really know where to start with it - and it's certainly one of the central scenes in the film. It sticks out in every way.

No way, this movie is great. Such great characters, so many actions out of desperation that somehow feel motivated, and a complex story that manages to feel simple and relatable. Maybe you were looking for a Coen Bros movie, and didn't get it? Besides Frances McDormand* being in it, I'm not sure what is Coens Brothers-y about this movie at all. And that's great.


*also, she crushes it.

David Lynch / Re: The Official Twin Peaks Thread (TOTPT)

things get harder and sadder as you age, if you let them. the transitory nature of cultural objects--which feel so important to us now--that's a rabbit hole that leads into existentialism and the root of the problem, you know. my god, this whole time the problem was inside us, every fucking time man.

tv and movies and vlogs are visual arts. and from what i hear, primates are visual creatures. so they have a real advantage and that's a separate category. textual art, writing, words, that's not for all primates. it's for humans. it's for our goddamn advanced consciousnesses, okay. like i said, separate category.

in our contemporary reality the fear of literature is computers, both in terms of its effect upon readerly desires, and all the smart people preferring to study computers now. but first of all the robots are going to take over and that'll be their bad. second of all oh art will never die let's be serious.
