we got showtime thrown in free with our cable for some undetermined amount of time earlier in the year, so yay for me.
watching last night, had that feeling of getting confused and downright sleepy, and then suddenly snapped into being engrossed as lynch can sometimes do... def appreciate that it's not just a nostalgia piece and more of a culmination of what he's been up to in the intervening years, even if i don't necessarily always *enjoy* it.
spoilers okay here?
cuz a couple waiting for "something to happen" while staring at a black glass box getting their faces chewed off is not exactly subtle.

the first time i ever heard of tiger balm was in a cosmo sex advice column when i was a teenager. yes, they were recommending rubbing a bit on each others' junk before doing it. *shudders*
song to song - whoooo boy. a very latter day malick-y Terrance Malick movie. some pretty shots but way too much whispery voice over. not interesting love triangle (Rooney Mara/Ryan gosling/Michael fassbender) turns into a not interesting love septagon. all the music cameos (black lips, iggy, big freedia, patti smith) are I guess energetic/more authentic looking than staged fake movie concerts,but all kinda unnecessary.
our cat goes ridiculously bonkers whenever she sees another cat. we have two cats regularly showing up in our yard lately. one is in heat and humps the sidewalk. the other was peeping in our bedroom window last night, making our cat scream bloody murder and run room to room trying to fight/intimidate/scare off/whatever the other cat. fun?
Neon Demon-watched it yesterday, and a day later think I kind of loved it. glossy trash, evokes much better things (kubrick, cronenberg, lynch) while being pretty defiantly empty. silly ridiculous gore, good sound design and score. would totally understand if someone hates it tho.
listlessly watching 120 minutes on MTV classic. Just saw nick cave "mercy seat" and dinosaur jr "just like heaven" videos, but now it's front 242 and nitzer ebb time so maybe I really should go to bed.
