Saw "Out Of Sight" with "A" today - we met at the cinema. She thought some of the characters' behaviors were unbelievable. I found certain of the cinematic effects interesting (the many short freeze-frames, the snow) as well as the views of Detroit. Then she followed me back to my place, where she saw the interior of a Rasch-flat for the first time. Later, she left.
Readers of this journal may have noticed I maintain several long-term friendships with school chums. I don't like losing people, and so this week-end I managed to reconnect with a girlfriend from my college days (the original, actually). We've had no contact for perhaps seventeen years, so now there's much email. Intrigued by this journal business, E looked at Eno's A Year With Swollen Appendices and bounced back with:
"Funny thing - I flipped through it and on page 80..."
16 March:"I haven't seen the movie "Truman Show", but isn't that the plot basically? how odd. It was Brian Eno's idea!!"
Good call, E! In other Truman news, here's some key verbiage from a month-old San Francisco Chronicle column I just read:
All of us have some Truman in our lives, only we've created the artifice ourselves.More quotes from articles about "The Truman Show" are available on my clippings page.
