Merry Christmas Cotton Candy Screenshot of the day

Cotton Candy Clouds
From Ryland Walker Knight to you, dear readers.


  1. Is that from Miami Vice? Watched it again yesterday, the director's cut. I don't know if I like the musical changes during the climax (the "In The Air Tonight" cover). But the film looks fantastic on my brand-new HDTV. . . .

  2. Yeah, I didn't get that far...check out this comparison. HDTV, eh? Does this mean even less time above ground? I wish I could watch The New World on HDTV. Or Children of Men: you gotta go see it.

    I got Tokyo Story for Xmas so I can finally say I've seen an Ozu. I'll try to write about it once I get to it. For now, tho, I'm gonna be busy with getting back into school and ignoring the fact that I'm miserable already, missing Allison.

  3. I don't know that I can spend less time above ground . . .

    I've an extensive list of things I need to watch now that I've got the dope setup: The New World, Hero, House Of Flying Daggers, Kill Bill, Punch-Drunk Love, Seven Samurai, Playtime, Princess Raccon, The Searchers, Celine And Julie Go Boating (DVD just arrived!) etc etc. Basically everything visually interesting I own.

    We're getting Children Of Men in a week, you can be sure I'll be trying to arrange a showing of it.

    Did you like Tokyo Story? Was it everything you thought it would be? I really do need to see it again.

  4. He's basically correct about the Director's vs. Theatrical cuts of Miami Vice. Both are very good, but the Theatrical's without a doubt superior.

    I do still really like the opening shot of the Director's Cut though. But the more I think about it, that's the only change I like.
