Living in a grand library, the world's biggest and baddest, and the bossman's on my back cuz I'm sneaking to the stacks over lunchbreak. Sigh. Get me outta here.

a WIsconsin farm boy who, with a large helping of grit, a can-do-attitude, and a whole lotta talent made it to the bright lights of New York and SUCCESS spelled in capital letters. A recently aquired metropolitan polish not managing to conceal his salt of the earth nature, heartland morals and an instinctive sympathy with the little guy. this is the story of suspended reason.

"Here's a song that's also from the 1930s. It's one I did quite a long time ago now... It's from an album called Another Time, Another Place."

Who loves ya, baby?
"When the Twin Towers suddenly reappear in the Badlands of South Dakota twenty years after their fall, nobody can explain their return. To the hundreds, then thousands, then tens of thousands drawn to the American Stonehenge including Parker and Zema, siblings on their way from L.A. to visit their mother in Michigan the Towers seem to sing, even as everybody hears a different song. A rumor overtakes the throng that someone can be seen in the high windows of the southern structure.

On the ninety-third floor, Jesse Presley the stillborn twin of the most famous singer who ever lived suddenly awakes, driven mad over the hours and days to come by a voice in his head that sounds like his but isn't, and by the memory of a country where he survived in his brother's place."

Yeah... as mentioned in the first post. Interesting novelist but for me I enjoy his films more. Not just Marienbad in which he collaborated with Resnais, but the films he directed himself which gave him free rein to explore his obsessions (naked ladies, repetition and weird circular plots in which what has happened and has not is never clear). Albeit without Resnais' technical expertise I guess.

the minneapolis / twin cities area used to produce a lot of people like that. it's a hard to describe archetype but one i always have in the back of my head. joel from mystery science theater comes to mind. also mike from the same show. the guys in husker du seem like they'd fit as well. dick cavett would be another general example, although he was from nebraska. all paste peope i guess.

I'll have to check out! My friend didn't like Marienbad at all, so I'd written it off, but I'll have to check it out. Great to know

I really like La Belle Captive, Gradiva, Glissements Progressifs... in fact they are all at least interesting.

That first image reminds me of that weird Man Ray thing that's supposed to be mimicking the Black Dahlia.
