Life is death. Death is in life. To hold your own true love in your arms and see the skeleton she will be; to know that your love leads to death, that death is all there is, that is what I know and what I do not want to know and what I cannot bear. — Cornell Woolrich

Death by Caffeine

July 9, 2010

The moment you stop to think about whether you love someone, you’ve already stopped loving that person forever.

I don’t know who Adam Croot is. I’ve never met him, spoken to him, or – as far as I’m aware – set eyes on him. He’s probably a decent fellow – kind to his mother, careful with litter, etc. – but he’s really starting to get on my wick.

It seems other people are starting to despise him as well, and with a lot more vitriol than that which I can muster.

“Louie” On The FX Channel

July 9, 2010

Louis C.K. has a new series on FX.

Prior to this, he had Lucky Louie on HBO. That was a show that descended into really disgusting humor at times. It made me cringe, but I kept coming back because of Pamela Adlon. It was also funny in an unintended way: Louis C.K. couldn’t deliver a line to save his life; he was just awful. All he had was a small repertoire of facial expressions (and most of those were also delivered unbelievably!). The show was — no surprise — cancelled after it first season.

Now he has Louie on FX.

Some people might see a similarity with Seinfeld, in that this series concentrates on the small things that happen in daily life …

But what sets it apart from that show and makes it far superior is the maturation of Louis C.K. himself. He can deliver a line now — hell, he can outright act.

And his directing is sometimes astonishing:

And this show is absolutely brilliant.

There was even a Dennis Potter Moment in one episode:

I don’t want to quote any of the dialogue or show much more than these photos. You really must see the show for yourself. This is a really great show — I expect it will win a ton of Emmy awards — and as much as I hate watching TV, this is one half hour I’ll be seeing every week.

So should you!

Ted Bundy Begins

I was about half in love with her by the time we sat down. That’s the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty… you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are.
