- please go to www.decasia.com. it is the home site for bill morrison, who is currently exhibiting his film Decasia in one of my school's galleries. This is one of the most brilliant films i have ever seen. If you have ever seen and appreciated Haxan, Begotten, or anything similar, this film buries them. this is not a new film, but a collection of very old strips of film that have been compiled by morrison to form a 60 minute piece. The special part is that these strips are celluloid and nitrate based, which starts to decay the second is is made. What is left are images that are melted, skewed, and otherwise degraded, forming some of the most beautiful imagery i have ever seen. on another level is the soundtrack score (the composer's name escapes me), which serves as a very powerful and haunting accompaniment to the picture. there are 5 minute clips from the film on the site, which i haven't yet tested but hopefully work.
- let it be known to the fair citizens of the NY/NJ/CT area that i am coming home for spring break, and fucking your shit up. IZZY! My life partner! There is so much time, so little to be done! (strike that, reverse it).
i hope to get in as much aural surgery as time allows for.
now i go write words elsewhere.
