I just had my first ever muffuletta, and OH MAN. Why didn't you fools tell me about this sandwich before? I think I'll wrap up the other half--savor the flavor for later. How in 25 years was I never privy to the delectable ham, succulent salami, mounds of melted cheese and sounds-gross-but-is-oh-so-good olive spread on a toasted kaiser roll?
(Answer: I wasn't clear how to pronounce it, so I never ordered it.)

Muffuletta, I know you are just a silly sandwich, but will you marry me?

movies and shit

My sister and I watched One Hour Photo on pay-per-view at her apartment yesterday, and what a stinker. Music video director Mark Romanek's first feature is one of those pictures that fails almost due to it's enormous potential. The picture is one about pictures, which is curiously undercovered material for a genre called film. (My thoughts turn immediately to High Art, a sad, understated piece about photography that lingers in your undersenses long after it's finished.) One Hour Photo was dark, yes, but it was trying too, too hard. The score was definitely creepy, but it did not parallel the action or sentiment on-screen; it served as the only truly spooky aspect of the movie. Robin Williams just didn't explore the character as much as he could have. His acting, his face, it had little depth, as if his merely playing The Bad Guy is effort enough. I am very interested in characters like Sy who are lonely--truly lonely--and by that lonliness become twisted and unique. But this was all so flat. Other than their being incredibly attractive, I didn't share Sy's interest in the Yorkin family at all. And I didn't believe that there existed a grocery chain called SavMart where one could have their pictures developed in under sixty minutes. The shelves of the store were impeccable, the floors spot and paper free. This didn't look like any grocery store I'd been to before. And the Yorkin's home was this sterile, open, cold place--respresentative, in fact, of the whole film. If a movie's only compelling element is it's black, emotional-ick factor, there has to pre-exist some feeling. Obvious observations about the medium of photography are not sufficient substitute for a meaningful or mind-tickling script, nor does Robin Williams with short blonde hair make for a scary antagonist. And did I mention the dream sequences? The overt, self-gratifying montages that featured rupturing, bleeding heads and storylines that were actually intriguing until Sy snapped awake, back to the abysmal movie already in place?

It is short though, just over an hour and a half long, which I must give credit for. Not enough good movies are an hour and a half. At least this shitty one didn't overstay it's welcome.

I really enjoyed seeing Monsters, Inc. for a second time, though. What a delightful film this is! It is a great, "classic" kids movie, that doesn't rely at all (well, barely) on pop culture references and ironic humor. I'm a sucker for both those things, but I think maybe really good children's films are being compromised in order to entertain the parents with sarcastic, self-referential humor, which is mostly lost on young kids. Instead, Monster's Inc. serves up heaping helpings of (gasp!) imagination, for which, of course, there is no substitute. And talk about heart. Been a long time since an animated movie made me cry. (Okay, not so long, probably. More on that soon.) Boo, the little girl at the center of the picture, is so goddamned adorable I just want to squeal. She calls the big, ol' John Goodman character, Sully, "Kitty." Which fucking cracks me up. And Goodman is so badass. He cultivates so much tenderness and kindness out of a blue and pink furry monster thing--when he has to say goodbye to Boo I just die.

Anyway, watch the Pixar flick, not that other craptacular carcass of a movie I mentioned.

Because I said so.

(And I'll be picking up screeners of a few indie films from the Nashville Scene office tomorrow. They want 200 word write-ups for three features--including the devestating [I've heard] "The Day I'll Never Forget"--and some local shorts, all of which will be featured at this year's NIFF. Yay me!)

One of the perks of this new web space is a new e-mail address, which I've need for quite a long time. My hotmail account has become overrun with spam since I was so careless with it initially. The hotmail email address is still active, and will remain so, but please direct all future mail to me to miscetc (at) brittney (dot) f2o (dot) org. Actually, it can be anythingatall (at) brittney (dot) f2o (dot) org--the more creative the better. Make me laugh. Call me names.
And don't go handing it out anywhere on-line. I'm going to try my hardest to keep the webcrawlers' crawly, little paws off of it.

Also, I finally put some photos back up. I created a sort of Best Of gallery (here), so if there is any photo in particular you would like for any reason, and it isn't featured here, just let me know and I might can get it for you.

My friend Sammy had to go to the emergency room last weekend because a moth flew in his ear. Like, way down in it. His drunk friends tried to convince him that he didn't need to go to the hospital, that that would be the most expensive moth in Tennessee, but Sam told them he had a insect in his head, flitting around, and he wasn't thinking straight--look at him, he had tweezers jammed into his ear hole. I'd have clawed my eyed out by then. He sat in the ER waiting room, no apparent signs of illness, occassionally twitching and digging at his ear. The doctor tried to smother it with some sort of gel. Which failed. So they flushed his ear with warm, streaming water, which he says, is very pleasant and should be offered at spas or at the Y. The nurse told him that there was still a bug leg in his ear, she just couldn't get it out. Poor Sammy, that bug will be with him, in him, always. Or until it decays. Ewwwwwwwww.

Somehow, I'd managed to go all this time without hearing Daryl Worley's "Have you Forgotten?," the pro-war country song that is a big favorite with total retards. Have you heard this song?!

It's this awful, super-slick, country, patriot ballad. And oh my God, it's so bad I can't entirely verbalize it. First of all, the sheer stupidity of the shit is beyond comprehension. Even like, my mom knows that Iraq isn't directly responsible for the events that occured on September 11. Yet this is the entire premise of this ri-fucking-diculous song. The motherfucker rhymes Bin Laden with forgotten! You can't fucking do that.

He goes on to talk about how if it were up to him, Freedom-Loving Daryl Worely, he'd show footage of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center every day. He wants to see it every day.

I sound pissed because I am. This song was created to make money--an exploitation of the victims of 9/11 if there ever was one, but no one cares since it's all cleverly packaged in the pretty lies they are all so accustumed to being handed. This song sickens me, and I'll bet you my Dad fucking loves it. (No offense, Dad. That is, if you ever made your way off the AOL front page. I respect your right to listen to completely infactual and manipulative music if you want. And if you don't like this song, I'm so buying you a beer.)

while walking
Tuesday, April 1, 2003

-A little girl pedals by me on a bike, steering with one hand, the other encased in a pink cast up to the middle of her upper arm. Reminding me immediately of the time I rode a bike too small for me down this steep hill in back of the apartments where I lived. The hill curved right at the bottom, and out of view of those at the top of the slope. Twice, I rode the bike down quickly, but safely. Then I tossed the bike in the ditch, twice, pretending to be hurt--sending my friends scurrying down to see about me. At which time I'd jump up, laughing at the funny prank. The third time I sailed down, a knobby knee striking the handlebars, sending me right over them and onto the pavement. I tried to get up by propping up on my left arm, only to realize I couldn't since it was numb with pain. It was broken, I could tell. I'd broken that same arm just a few years before. I screamed for my friends, the tiny bike lying on top of me. They, of course, went inside. I layed in the middle of the street, crumpled and broken under my neighbor's too-small bike, until a man drove along and called an ambulance.

I am, apparently, a living fable. (The broken arm was taped into a make-shift splint once at the emergency room made from a rolled up magazine. Such were the superb medical facilites in Small Town, Tennessee.

-Airplanes, their white tails creating smoky fireworks in the sky.

-A robin, busily building a nest of twigs and shiny, pastel-colored string confetti. I imagine the nest filled with Cadburry Creme Eggs.*

-While jogging, a black Corvette, new, peels into the gravel, stopping short. I continue forward and smile and nod to two young construction workers on the sidewalk. After I pass I hear, "Hey, girl! He wants to holler at you." I yell back, "That's okay!," and run further than I'd planned in efforts to lose the man in the car.

-Three children, playing a game of intricacies and importance. They are trying to hash out the rules. A ball is being thrown high into the air as voices raise. Seems as though, "I'm telling Mama" still trumps all.

-Jog past a man in a chair in a suit and tie, playing an electric guitar with no strings. He tells me that running is bad for my knees.

-A family of five and two dogs walk, without speaking. The husband and wife are exactly the same height.

-A house three streets over looks as though the Easter bunny has taken a large shit on it. The tree branches hold hundreds of empty, plastic eggs. I wonder if there will be a hunt, and if so I want to go, since maybe this year I could win one. As a child our Easter egg hunts were rigged, my aunts always helping their children cheat. The golden egg was a wadded up piece of aluminum foil, the prize twenty dollars or a kiss from my father. Winner's choice.

There's something you should know. I haven't quite been myself lately. I've been distant, preoccupied. I've been hanging out with new people. I've been updating less often and generally neglecting this here weblog. I've been mentally noting the nuances in sentence structures and calling people really mean names. And told some secrets. I've been watching my back and suspecting others of lying and deceit, and keeping tabs on who says what, and when, and how and for what reason. But not well wnough. Because, folks, I've been kicked off a eliminated from a* "reality web game."

I'd been digging on Ernie's site for some time and noticed the call for Puppetmaster II applications and figured why the hell not. I filled it out, kissed a little ass and lo and behold, I got picked. I hadn't viewed the original game, and so went into it blindly.

What transpired from there was some faux-cattiness, many a drunkin' post and a pretty good amount of fun. I got into trying to discover the puppet (Seriously, hats off to the Puppetmaster. You are doing a hell of a job writing a puppet. That, or I'm just dim.), but sadly, had not near the amount of time I needed to particpate to the best of my abilities. In fact, I kind of should apologize to Ernie for a lack of participation compared to the others--the man runs a good game (And hard! That last exemption game was a bitch.); I shoulda done better.

Anyhow, you now have my full attention. My new buddies were cool and all. But, while you all have your serious defecits, you all, at least, are real.

*Kicked off sounds cooler. Like maybe I bitch slapped somebody and couldn't cry my way out of getting sent home.

My grandfather, my mom's dad, I never met him. He died after I was born, I think. I don't know for sure. In fact, right this second, I can't remember the man's name. I know he married my mom's mother, had three children, and that he died a wino on the streets of Nashville. My mother's mother died when my mom was four. Mom told me she learned of his death in the newspaper, a story outlining the tale of a homeless man found dead on the traintracks--weeks after he took his last breath.

My mother tells me that for a time she wouldn't go to lunch with her co-workers for fear of running into him while out and about downtown. A move she now deeply regrets.

I hardly ever think about my grandfather, as you might imagine. He's such a sketch in my head. Just the hollow-faced man I've seen in that one picture. Today, though, I read this piece by Sarah Hepola. And now I'm sort of sad. I hope my grandfather was even a tiny little bit like William--I hope had I been around he might have shared a corner with me.

They were in her den, four of them, tipsy on white whine and whisky. The brunette wore a sharp, new skirt and everyone noticed. All were comfortable, laughing, but Paul. The guy Lara invited over. They'd only been dating a couple of weeks, and while there wasn't a chemically-based attraction between them she kept seeing him because he smelled very, very clean and he really became hilarious after a few drinks. Paul liked her pretty okay, too. She had amazing breasts and this rubber face that he found endearing. And she wasn't needy like other girls, which was refreshing.

He liked to watch her with her friends, slipping into old routines, quoting television shows they all adored. She wished he would speak up, and maybe sneak a hand through her hair. He eyed her shoulders as they rose and fell, safely from the bean bag across the room.

Her brother flipped through albums, deciding on an appropriate selection. From the bean bag he watched the blurred faces of Michael Jackson and Carole King and Fleetwood Mac, as her brother sped through the records. Then an album bearing a name they all knew surfaced, and there was a snag in time, and Paul watched Lara's brother watch her as she swallowed, bit her cheek and grabbed her cigarettes. She made for the door, and Paul couldn't place just where he'd heard that name before.

And he suddenly, without reason, Paul grew to like Lara a whole lot more.

A reader by the name of Tim posted a lengthy comment asking me about the origin of garmonbozia. He is a big Twin Peaks fan who's yet to see the prequel Fire Walk with Me, where garmonbozia becomes a more prominent element.

So, Tim I suggest you go ahead and watch the film. Seeing FWWM is going to heavily enrich your TP experience. The Black and White Lodges are covered heavily, though as obtusely as you might imagine. However, if you really want to know, it will not ruin anything for you plot-wise, so here is what I know about garmonbozia. Those of you who haven't seen the entire series should stop reading. Seriously. Stop it.

Simply put, garmonbozia is pain and suffering. We get this literal definition from one of the final Red Room scenes in Fire Walk With Me. Creamed corn seems to be the physical manifestation of garmonbozia. There is speculation that the word is derived from "ambrosia," the food of the gods. Others speculate that the word, when played backwards, has various meanings. The most widely held backward meaning of the word is "I am/was/saw Windham Earle."

It seems as though garmonbozia is nourishment for the dwellers of the Black Lodge, which makes sense since BOB feeds on fear.

And that, my friend, is all I can tell you about garmonbozia. Once you see the film you will gain a wider understanding of its role in the series as a whole. Watch it alone amped up on lots and lots of coffee.

I wonder at how power and greed can become so engulfing that one no longer minds the slaying of thousands in the name of their personal interests. I am appalled at the ordering of journalists out of the area, lest they be targeted down. It infuriates me to know most Americans will never know what happens.
