David the Goliath

June 16, 2005


The less I hear of David Lynch the more obsessed and antsy I become. Come ON already, Mr. Lynch. Every time I skirt an article that mentions his name I get to thinking about how happy I'll be when I'm watching his new work, how filled with utter satisfaction at being alive in this wondrous universe. Idle Type refers me to a great Variety article on Lynch's new flick, Inland Empire.
"Making a film is a beautiful mystery," Lynch says. "You go deep into the wood, and you don't want to come out of that wood, but the time is coming very soon when I will have to."
This wood sounds like a helluva place. You know you were born to make movies if you have to go into the dark wood, which exists only in your own head, every time you want to shoot. Oi, Cee Pee, you like to make the movies, can I hitch a ride to the wood or summat this weekend?

Yes, where was I, right, David Lynch...I find it very interesting that the man has switched to digital video after having performed such mastery over film for so many decades. To all the film school types who still think the film medium is "like, waaay real", news flash, that shit is turning obsolete faster than you can say "cut!". Isn't that right, Mr. Lynch, sir?
"For me, there's no way back to film. I'm done with it," Lynch says. "I love abstraction. Film is a beautiful medium, but it's very slow and you don't get a chance to try a lot of different things. With DV, you get those chances. And in post-production, if you can think it, you can do it."
*shivers shivers* So very true, true, and more true. I have just purchased my very first digital (still) camera myself. I stopped taking pictures two years ago when I got fed up with film and had no money for digital. But now, sweet digital data is what my life will be written in. After eons of research, drooling, lowering of standards, and general stinginess, here is my new baby, the Canon Powershot A520.

My dearest Neha, I will touch base with my contacts and see if it is possible to find the coordinates for this "wood". I have a feeling its going to be quite the ordeal, but alas so is my life. We are coming soon David!

When the world gits ye down, darling Cee Pee, just remember the words of the wisest sage of all Dog the Bounty Hunter, "6 men can carry you or 12 men can judge you. You decide!".

Oooh... [drool] I have a (primitive) Canon Powershot A60. I love it. It does things that I haven't even figured out how do to yet but I'm craving more megapixels. I was hesitant to buy because I knew that as soon as did they would come out with the camera I really want for less money but I had been looking for a while and my husband dragged me out to buy it.

Oh nice, the A60 or A75 were what I initially wanted, then this puppy came out and so did my tax return! But really, as long as you're sticking to regular prints the Canon image quality is unbeatable. I was drooling over the SD series but it's hard to spend so much when you know it's going to be worth 3 bucks in a few months.
