“Yeah, that’s awesome. What does he have to actually make the coffee?”
A plastic filter holder you put directly over the cup. Put the grounds in the filter (literally this organic brown paper compostable filter), pour the hot water through, compost grounds/filter, rinse out holder, drink. Takes 10 seconds per cup.
Awesome! Let him know I can house-sit for him any time he needs it!
An interview with David Lynch over the Eraserhead soundtrack
And the album itself consists of extended portions of the film— just the sound that’s in the film?
OH MY GOD! Perfect!!! I used to do a 20th century composition radio show, and once a year I would do film scores, and I always spent a good part of that show playing just the sound from my dvd of Eraserhead! There are some really, really incredible drones throughout the film. I would have made an mp3 of the film if I had the software/knowhow. I can’t wait! I didn’t even realize this was coming!!
EDIT: This soundtrack is gonna be vinyl-only? Fuck that. I’ll still buy it anyway, though…
RE-EDIT: Nevermind, there’s an MP3, too
I’m moving Eraserhead up to the number 1 slot on my favorite films, I think. Everything about this movie just makes me so excited.
Synchronized swimmers from Russia + Suspiria music = Instant gold medal. And they wore creepy swimsuits and played "living dolls!! "
So apparently yesterday when I was poking around on this forum on my iPhone, I accidentally clicked “Subscribe to notifications about this topic” on the Stop The Lists thread. Now my mailbox has 89 emails.
Should there be, perhaps, either a larger button for this, or some kind of ‘Are you sure’ box when you subscribe to a topic so this kind of thing doesn’t happen?
^ My Mubi account is linked to my spam email. If I want to know if somebody commented on a thread, I’ll check that thread. That’s not what my email’s for.
OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHhhhhhhhh, this makes sense:
Clarifies, indeed, much of our public discourse.
I use the same coffee method, but it takes more than a little more’n ten secs for me.
I use 1/4 cup coffee for a large mug
I am about ready for a cup now.
Now follow what your father says!
In everything else, but not coffee.
Well then! You must get used to the idea
that you won’t have a husband either.
Oh yes! Father, a husband!
I swear, that won’t happen.
Until I can give up coffee?
Right! Coffee, remain forever untouched
Father,listen, I won’t drink any at all.
Then you’ll have a husband!
This very day,
dear father, do it now!
Ah, a husband!
That’s just right for me!
If only it could happen at once,
so that at last instead of coffee
before I go to bed
I could get a lusty lover!
Now old Schlendrian goes off and looks out
for his daughter Liesgen
to see if he can get her a husband soon.
But Liesgen lets it be secretly known:
no suitor of mine should come to the house
unless he himself has promised
and it is written also in the marriage contract
that I shall be permitted
to make coffee whenever I want.
The cat does not leave the mouse,
young ladies remain coffee addicts.
The mother loves her cup of coffee
the grandmother drank it also.
Who can blame the daughters!
ARE YOU ALL INSANE?
Oh. Thank Shiva.
Does anyone else have an account on interpals.net? I wonder why it isn’t popular anymore to have (snail mail / email) pen pals? At least the site doesn’t seem to be as big-brother-esque as other social networking platforms..
Never heard of it, Grey. I had a snail mail pen pal from Poland around ten years ago. I miss being excited to get the mail.
Oh my god my friends made this. I love it.
Have actually really wanted to take up letter writing, but the only ones I’d want to write to are people I’ve met online so it obviously seems redundant . . .
Suck it, Coehlo!
THIS LITERARY FEUD IS ON! Your books are the most simplistic overrated and often New Age nonsense I’ve ever fucking read! The only people who appreciate your shit are those who need ‘gurus’ and ‘yogis’ to invite them to experience ‘the simple life’ instead of knowing how to calm down and enjoy life and stop bitching about it. Joyce’s literature is actually about life and its internal workings. BRING IT!
(Hint: Like the article sez, literary feuds are mostly just entertaining. I’ve only read The Alchemist by Coelho and was very unimpressed, but I don’t really hate it or think Coelho sucks. A lot of what he’s saying about making himself accessible to everybody and not just creating stylistic structure games is understandable, he just targeted the inspiration and not the actual source. Had he said the same thing of, say, David Mitchell, I’d be like, “Yeah really. Hear hear.” Instead, he laid it on ‘the king’, the guy who actually did it right and thus is the example of why so many others fail.
So really I’m just standing here in the stadium crowd, bellowing and chest thumping ‘cause hey, game on right? I don’t think this ‘feud’ is significant, I just think it’s funny. And also, that Coelho just fucked with the wrong modernist.)
““[W]riters fell into disgrace when they sought recognition through form, not content” (false dichotomy in this context anyway—what a brazen, willing dolt)

A quote from the article:
“The last time I slogged through the book, it was the catechism chapter (“Ithaca”) between Stephen and Leopold near the novel’s end that grabbed in a way it had not before:
Alone, what did Bloom feel?The cold of interstellar space, thousands of degrees below freezing point or the absolute zero of Fahrenheit, Centigrade or Réaumur: the incipient intimations of proximate dawn.
If that is nothing but style, then I want nothing but."
Just full of coffee.
Some people flapping their lips to some real point!
Ugh, they added music. The video is ruined!
William Holden is finally getting a star on the St. Louis walk of fame!!
I’m probably going to work on this.
I have a few obligations to attend to before I can commit but they’re easy to shuffle around, I really think this looks like an excellent project. I’d really like to see it come to fruition.
Just now had second earthquake in LA in the last two weeks.
Must be hard out there for all those house-of-card-building Angelinos.
oh no, scary! does this mean the big one is coming
Oh my god my friends made this. I love it.
There was a similar gag on iCarly a couple of years ago. I mean, I heard there was.
About the above pic…
What’s it from? Looks like something Rumiko Takahashi.
Like a stoned Akane in drag.
Naturally, it will coincide with the end of the year/world…>_<
Though this was probably big enough(far more than the one you and I just talked about) to conjure the patented dreadful local media bleat about WHAT TO DO WHEN THE BIG ONE HITS, and How To Prepare and How Close Are We and so on. Disasters bring out a curious, uncharacteristic meditative quality amid the lightspeed warp of media; last time there was a relatively big quake the local networks swarmed what apparently the only two easily accessible locations bearing visible damage, which were a random brick wall in an abandoned industrial lot, and a generic supermarket in the middle of east LA where bottles of wine had shattered on one aisle. The next two days the networks played the same static shots and pans of these same two locations to a hilarious extent. Bottles broke, so now we know this earthquake happened.
Unfortunately, I am not aware of the origin of that image. I just know it as a variation on the “Oh really?” meme.
Edit: Did a smattering of research and apparently it’s from an episode of Gunsmith Cats.
Nowhere near Takahashi Rumiko… just an accident of 90s big hair.
