vicious and vitreous

I'm writing again; so not really leaving the house, for the nonce. Also, in a dim way, I'm actually following a sports event for the first time in a few years, as Arizona looks to be doing well in the NCAA tournament. Stanford's doing even better, but that excites me less, for some reason I can't probe.

Ed Harris talks about Pollock.

After Krzysztof Kieslowski completed his sublime "Three Colors" trilogy with Red in 1994, he claimed he was done with movies. From here on, he said, he would only sit in his apartment and smoke cigarettes. Not surprisingly, this didn't last long; I really believe that for most artists the Muse is a cast-iron bitch who pulls you whither she will, whether you like it or not, and quitting just isn't an option. Shortly before his death in 1996, Kieslowski began to work with his longtime collaborator Krzysztof Piesiewicz on scripts for a planned trilogy based on Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory. Looks like they're actually going to see the light of day, in some version. "Heaven" will be released this fall: it's English language, with Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) directing and Cate Blanchett starring.

Nina reports that Geegaw's hit count has halved. This is a goddamn shame. Go read Geegaw, folks; especially if you're one of those strange people who like poetry and stuff.
