too much typing—since 2003


spot the setup

From the Department of Missed Opportunities:

In this week's "News of the Weird," the story concerning one "Mount Lee Lacy": it's truly a shame that doing so would have essentially given away the punchline, because if ever a story cried out for the headline MAN BITES DOG, this is it.

In desperately seeking a transition from the last paragraph to this one, the only thing that comes to mind is "biting" - rather unfortunate, but what can I say. Anyway: I watched Silence of the Lambs last night, for the first time in probably a decade...and I had forgotten how incredibly young Jodie Foster looks in that movie. This is most noticeable in the opening jogging sequence, and particularly in the "night vision" sequence in "Buffalo Bill"'s house. (Both times, I suspect, it was quite intentional.)

I'm also wondering if any other movie managed to place both a member of Wire (Colin Newman) and The Fall in its soundtrack...
