That's What She Said & Are Movies Dead?

 October 30, 2023

   Got some old school babes on my mind. For the book, of course.

Daily Whip Out: "Fintastic Babe #1"

Daily Whip Out: "Jugs Iced Free Babe #1"

   I can do better, but that's what she said.

Are Movies Dead?
"The movies are, once again, not dead. Art forms are more like viruses than animal species: They don't become extinct: they mutate, recombine, go dormant and spread out again in new, sometimes unrecognizable ways which carry memories of older selves, encoded in their DNA. . .they are variously amazing, mediocre, corrupt, visionary and stupid, but their intrinsic qualities matter less than what we are able to make of them. They feed us lies, myths, propaganda and nonsense, which we alchemize into wishes and dreams."
—A. O. Scott, in the New Yorker


 A Dying Way of Life

"I knew as I was growing up something was wrong. I didn't know what. . .I knew something was over and it was not coming back"
—Larry McMurtry

"I have to think one set of values and traditions was being strongly challenged by another set of values and traditions. That is, I grew up just at the same time when rural and soil traditions were really, for the first time, being seriously challenged by urban traditions."
—Larry McMurtry

"If I didn't love the place I'd hate it violently."
—Larry McMurtry on his hometown of Archer City, Texas
