In Memoriam: Howard Phillips Lovecraft – He was Providence

Apr 03, 2011 No Comments

[I received this writing inside of a sealed envelope smeared with what can only be described as a mix of gelatinous ichor, black tea, and delicious homemade tomatillo salsa by way of a mysterious cloaked invalid on prosthetic legs of what appeared to be silver. Along with it came a hand-scrawled scrap of paper with […]

Feb 14, 2011 4 Comments

BLACK SWAN is director Darren Aronofsky’s late contribution to the world of cinema in 2010. On the surface this film is revelatory of the excruciating world of professional ballet, replete with arduous competition, mental and physical exhaustion, betrayal, and at the same time the utmost beauty and grace of movement. But in BLACK SWAN the […]

Feb 08, 2011 7 Comments
