Sometimes I get so blue.
People say I'm just a fool.

All the world, even you
Should learn to love the way I do.

Great Neck, L.I.

Dear Mr. X:

Thanks ever so much for the copy of "Flaming Youth." I had of course been reading it as it appeared in the Metropolitan and enjoying it immensely. It will be a great pleasure to start from the beginning and read it thru as I had missed several installments.

Who in the devil are you? Do you know at least a dozen people have asked me if I wrote it. I wish I had but I'm sure I didn't--so who did. Tell me immediately and oblige

Yours Admiringly + Gratefully

David Lynch

Perhaps surprise is not on the menu of today's moviegoers.

They want reassurance, domestic fairy tales come true, not the astonishment that Jean Cocteau demanded of art.

So all hail the American fringies, those filmmakers who make something different out of next to nothing.

David Bowie

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show

Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

Where do they get all of the magnificent story arcs for their scripts?

Who is signing passes for them to get on the lot?

What kind of cars do they drive?

How do they know my office number?

Jane And Paul Bowles

Paul hired a driver, a young Moroccan, Mohammed Temsamany, whom he dressed in a military-looking uniform with shiny boots and puttees and with a visored cap. In the Jaguar they drove south to Marrakech and then to Fez, where Paul began to see a good deal of the young Moroccan painter Ahmed Yacoubi, whom he had first met in 1947. Whe Paul heard from Jane that she wanted to return to Morocco, he suggested that he drive to the French border to pick her up. Paul invited Ahmed to come along with him.

With Temsamany in his uniform and Ahmed in his white turban and jellaba, Paul drove through Spain.

Jane was in very good spirits when they picked her up at the border. During the trip south, however, she objected every time Paul drove. She insisted that she always knew exactly what Paul was thinking. She said she felt as if she herself were driving when he drove and she could not relax.

"Friend And Foe" shines Northwest indie songcraft through a Chicago post-rock lens, illuminating the quiet recesses with an unpredictable, experimental light. See what others have had to say about this phenomenal album:

"Beautiful and ominous." (The Absolute Sound)

"Equal parts free jazz, Talk Talk, and XTC." (Magnet)

"This just might be what we've waited for." (Filter)

"It's got a good beat and you can dance to it." (Kool Marder)

"The girls just love them!" {President Obama)
