here first. until we are there.

i’m in the middle

of watching ‘science of sleep.’ in the middle because the disc just keeps failing. and it fails in the spot where he (gael) finally shows stephanie his one second time machine. anyway, the last scene before that was gael in his dream world collecting beautiful things — all these stuff toy, big white stitch objects made of felt and wood —- while she is knitting a scene with a piano knitting machine.

and he asks her to hold his hand so he could fall asleep.

i’m bingeing on movies, books and music — and TV. i love studio 60.

i met a different paul auster in his collected works. he has this calm sense of surprise concerning the coincidences he keeps experiencing. i recognize as the ability to recognize patterns in your own life, in seeing that life can be a story. something that is rife and heavy with meaning, just dripping with significance, all these layers of it.

which is why i think i was rendered silent by someone who asked why i couldn’t just see the face value of things.

you’re such a contradiction. perhaps you are asking me to stop reading you.

My phone’s on vibrate for you
Electroclash is karaoke too
I tried to dance Britney Spears
I guess I’m getting on in years

My phone’s on vibrate for you
God knows what all these new drugs do
I guess to have no more fears
But still I always end up in tears

My phone’s on vibrate for you
But still I never ever feel from you
Pinocchio’s now a boy who wants to turn back into a toy

So call me
Call me the morning, call me in the night
So call me
Call me anytime you like

My phone’s on vibrate
For you, for you

(rufus wainwright – vibrate)

and yes, no sleep.

    i just finished reading auster’s “Brooklyn Follies” and loved it so much. Will definitely get more of his stuff. Any recommendations as to which I should read first?

  2. For his non-fiction, read invention of solitude!i really loved in the country of last things, but it was a painful read. dystopia has never been so real as in this book.but of course, the new york trilogy is still your best introduction to him. how’s law school?
