How is it possible that the passing of someone I’ve never met . . . hurts like the dickens.
Reading the Widow Tillane’s tweet this afternoon really broke me down. I was at my favorite diner where my happy mood dropped like a stone as I sat there grappling with what I read and the emotions that came up on me unexpectedly…and publicly. This hurt.
Oy vey!!! He leaves the toilet seat up. She wears too much perfume. He never asks directions. She’s always late. You want his money. He wants your sister. Poison? Driven to suicide or just a bullet in the brain? Do you do it yourself? Or do you get someone to help you? Trust is never as important as it is when murder is involved. You must kill her. You must kill him. And if you don’t do it yourself, you must trust your accomplice. Is love a many~splendored thing?
CLASSIC SYMBIOTIC COLLABORATIONS: THE STAR – DIRECTOR BLOGATHON:
I hosted my first blogathon waaay back during a cold and blizzard-y New York City weekend six months ago.
As I make my way through each essay, I see that the collaborative teams chosen by these bloggers show a kind of love…or, just love actually, in the teams’ relationships. For a writer-director to have an actor corporeally embody his ( her ) words and vision is a dream. For an actor to have a character so vivid to inhabit…or the blank canvas to paint with must be wonderfully creative.
HEAR YE! HEAR YE! This weekend, our “ORDER IN THE COURT! The Classic Courtroom Movies Blogathon” is now in session.
Lesley of SECOND SIGHT CINEMA and myself, here at CINEMAVEN’S ESSAYS FROM THE COUCH are proud to present you with blog posts on all things courtside. For our joint blogathon, we have many movies you know…and some you may not. I love it when we can all learn at the same time. Both Lesley and I look forward to sharing these entries with you.
