    Wisdom Teeth

    ★★★★★

    i had a tooth
    (molar)
    extraction last november
    they thought laughing
    gas would be sufficient even
    though i wanted a general
    anaesthesia initially they convinced me
    and i felt brave
    but hell it was
    i cried and i screamed even
    (like they do in the movies)
    though they turned up the laughing
    gas to max

    afterwards

    they said the tooth was
    so big
    it would have justified a general
    anaesthesia

    "wisdom teeth" captures
    exactly
    how it felt

    it was "a pain of unreasonable proportions"
    and i saw "prehistoric beasts"

    watched this with a new musical interpretation by the wonderful we stood like kings which was so amazing! you can watch a part of this show here: youtu.be/S0mh1vRhGXM
    don't miss them if they happen to come to your city!

    i already saw them play to vertov's sixth part of the world two years ago, which was also just wonderful (i cried my eyes out through the entire show) and can be viewed on their youtube account in its entirety: youtu.be/tAhh4lUZ66c

    (it's funny to have watched marie menken's go! go! go! just a few days before this)

    If this was titled Him and you had Theodora wearing Groucho glasses for two hours, do you think you’d still argue that this film tells something about HUMANS or would you have called it a chick flick and never considered watching it because that chick wasn’t even hot?

    (This is a rhetorical question. I wish people would stop proclaiming that films like this say something about HUMANS, because then it’d be easier to take such films a little bit lighter.…

  • American Honey

    American Honey

    ★★★

    “An infant, plunging its hands into a jar of honey, is instantly involved in contemplating the formal properties of solids and liquids and the essential relations between the subjective experiencing self and the experienced world. The viscous is a state half-way between solid and liquid. It is like a cross section in a process of change. It is unstable, but it does not flow. It is soft, yielding and compressible. Its stickiness is a trap, it clings like a leech;…
