Kate Moss irrégulière

William S. Burroughs: The Cat Inside



  May 1, 1985. A feeling of deep sadness is always a warning to be heeded. It may refer to events which will happen in weeks, months, even years. In this case exactly one month.
  Yesterday I walked up to the house on Nineteenth Street, depression and pain dragging every step. Ruski has not been to the house this morning.

Talitha Pol

First Lines: G. K. Chesterton - The Napoleon of Notting Hill



The human race, to which so many of my readers belong, has been playing at children's games from the beginning, and will probably do it till the end, which is a nuisance for the few people who grow up.

Kira Mazura

Winter's Bone (2010)




An unflinching Ozark Mountain girl hacks through dangerous social terrain as she hunts down her drug-dealing father while trying to keep her family intact.

More social drama than thriller the movie is wonderfully set in authentic surroundings and has a magnificent central performance by Jennifer Lawrence.

William S. Burroughs: The Cat Inside

  

  April 2, 1985. Ruski is on the desk by the north window. I pet him. He squeaks and nuzzles me and goes to sleep. I feel his sad, lost voice in my throat, stirring, aching. When you feel grief like that, tears streaming down your face, it is always a portent, a warning - danger ahead.

Natalia Vodianova

New Stuff: Ornette: Made in America



I finally got this great docuemntary on Ornette Coleman on DVD, I've been searching for it for decades.
