festive and festival  
I'm feeling pleasantly punchy since yesterday afternoon, my brain getting downright silly to entertain itself. Far nicer than the self-mutilation its been getting up to lately. Now I just need a fun-filled, sunny weekend to keep it going.

Also of excitement, the catalog for the Philadelphia Film Festival is now online and I'm beginning to plan my schedule. You can check it out here: http://www.phillyfests.com/home.cfm

the second I saw this, it reminded me of something from the first chapter of william gibson's Count Zero:

"The room was a tall cave. Bare white plaster reflected sound with too much clarity; somewhere beyond the clatter of the maids in the morning courtyard was the pounding of surf. The sheets bunched between his fingers were coarse chambray, softened by countless washings.

The woman beside him stirred in her sleep....

He raised himself on one elbow to look at her. A stranger's face, but not the one his life in hotels had taught him to expect. He would have expected a routine beauty, bred out of cheap elective surgery and the relentless Darwinism of fashion, an archetype cooked down from the major media faces of the previous five years.

Something Midwestern in the bone of the jaw, archaic and American. The blue sheets were rucked across her hips, the sunlight angling in through hardwood louvers to stripe her long thighs with diagonals of gold. The faces he woke with in the world's hotels were like God's own hood ornaments. Women's sleeping faces, identical and alone, naked, aimed straight out to the void. But this one was different. Already, somehow, there was meaning attached to it. Meaning and a name....

Allison. That was her name."

cheers,

alex
