…”basin seat”…



“I’m sorry I can’t come to the blog right now, but the latest edition of THE FORGOTTEN is up at THE AUTEURS. Please leave your comments, if you have any, over there.”


(I think this one’s crazier than the last, which is a good thing in my book. Michael Powell fans should find it of some interest anyway. Maybe George Perec fans also. And will the title of this post be explained? Possibly.)

    Haven’t got round to seeing Sebastian yet, but totally love your multiple variations on the name.

    Have you ever thought of a second career setting crossword puzzles? Cryptic ones, of course.

    Keep up the great work!

  2. Thanks!

    I didn’t mention that the film uses anagrams in its Richard Williams title sequence, a device picked up by the Robt Redford movie Sneakers some decades later.

  3. That’s because Dirk was a neurotic, brilliant emotional cripple. DO check out his swan song, Daddy Nosltagie where he’s paired with the beyond Sublime Jane Birkin as his neglected daughter.

    Great screen-grab of Sussanah York in downtown L.A.

  4. I’ve been urged to compel you all to put your comments over at The Auteurs! They’re a relatively new place and want lots of comments to make it look lived-in.

    That movie does indeed have an amazing hi-rise view of London, quite removed from the real place.

  5. Yes, it must be said that this place of yours is looking pretty lived-in these days.

  6. Some of those early Shadowplay posts are decidedly dog-eared. If you go back to last December the pages positively flake off the screen. Well-thumbed, that’s the word for them. Yellowing around the edges.

  7. Yeah, if you hold some of those worn posts up to the light, you can see right through them. Worn away, like a well-loved teddy bear.

  8. Or a well-loved nylon stocking. Heh.
