    The plot, what little there is of one, is very Lovecraftian - endless flight through a seaside town, followers of an obscure sect pursuing you even in your sleep, locked up safe in your motel. But there's an overriding voice that is reminiscent of Shirley Jackson - events taking on intimate, sinister undertones that echo and echo through claustrophobic domesticity just starting to sprawl out into a post-war infinity.

    Here, we arrive at that same gas station twenty some odd…

    So...this may sound like midlife crisis crazy talk, but I've had it with here/where my life is at right now, and so I've come to a very important decision on where my journey is taking me:

    Grovers Bend, Kansas.

    I am serious. It looks amazing. I want E.T's mom to be my mom. I wouldn't even mind having to live on a farm because I would have an awkward Billy Zane to tell me about what life is like in…

    Compromise: ok we'll say hi to dad when we take a shortcut through the cemetery on the way to that rager (actually a community hall dance but Susan is spiking the punch) i love this fucking movie it's like fun size without any Nickelodeon moralizing

    We went to see the lake flooding (a lake flood plays a pivotal scene in the stupid novel I just finished which i fucking hope - as I'm starting in on selling off my possessions…

    he is going to paint this town red literally??

    Starting with that poor 'With any 30 liter purchase' sign

    Me, yelling: haven't you already done enough to that sign??

    Yeah, yeah. I know that was dumb but what do you want from me? I didn't get any sleep again last night and I need to go over the rewrite one more time before *THE SLEDDENING begins plus, there's this book I HAVE to finish before claiming I read it on…

    Pre-60s horror Tuesdays:

    The main character Jacqueline (who still feels like the main character despite being onscreen very little and only showing up about a third of the way thru this) reveals a dangerous secret to her psychiatrist. Back then, gayness was a mental disorder called 'homesexuality' and (especially if you were female, but this assumption is purely based on the statistical likelihood of being considered the legal property of others more often than men were) you could be forcibly…

    I finally found it. The most 70s thing I've ever seen. The look and feel of this - or maybe just the most 70s in a specific way I feel like I've been looking for all my life. Though my favorite of Romero's films that I've seen is still Day of the Dead, this is probably a very close second. All those narrow halls, blue carpeting, cork wallpaper and fold-out closet doors with the wooden slats on them. We have…
