    Yeah, I watched it years ago. Was rewatching Snatch today and remembered Vinnie Jones in that film. Need to rewatch SS5+ too, it has been a while...

    Was little surprised to see the pimp funeral scene from Truck Turner show up on A Suitable Wardrobe, of all places. That post has accompanying commentary from one-time prominent SF poster RJMan, now just generally prominent.

    hmm ~ this place seems to have turned into the stylish movie thread, appendix A.

    a different direction is what i present -- usps/ebay free boxes, priority size large, far too big for sending shoes.
    surgical procedures
    retain only first five inches in height
    bandage resultant box together
    wait for bizarre expression on agent's face​

    As an art object, I appreciate that. But as a practical thing, isn't the purpose of the free boxes that you (i.e., USPS) then have dozens of same-sized things for easy packing/stacking/shipping? One oddball could ruin it!

    It seems a bit tortuous and the product of a malign mind assuredly.

    Vincent Van Gogh
    I know this painting is overexposed, but I don't care. I've always liked the story behind it. If I remember right, Van Gogh painted it while convalescing (if you want to call it that) at the asylum in St Rémy, near Arles. The period was productive for him, and he painted about 150 pieces. He liked to work outside, in view of the landscapes he was painting. But after a particularly bad bout of depression, he was confined to the asylum. He painted Starry Night during this confinement, doing it from memory and from his imagination.

    "It was while gliding through these latter waters that one serene and moonlight night, when all the waves rolled by like scrolls of silver; and, by their soft, suffusing seethings, made what seemed a silvery silence, not a solitude: on such a silent night a silvery jet was seen far in advance of the white bubbles at the bow. Lit up by the moon, it looked celestial; seemed some plumed and glittering god uprising from the sea."

    "There is, one knows not what sweet mystery about this sea, whose gently awful stirrings seem to speak of some hidden soul beneath; like those fabled undulations of the Ephesian sod over the buried Evangelist St. John. And meet it is, that over these sea-pastures, wide-rolling watery prairies and Potter's Fields of all four continents, the waves should rise and fall, and ebb and flow unceasingly; for here, millions of mixed shades and shadows, drowned dreams, somnambulisms, reveries; all that we call lives and souls, lie dreaming, dreaming, still; tossing like slumberers in their beds; the ever-rolling waves but made so by their restlessness."

    from Moby Dick

    haha, had my fair of abysmal papers, glad it didn't spoil the painting though


    Here's something totally different, Yuichi Yokoyama creates what you could call experimental mangas, he's mostly interested in depicting mundane activities in very aggressive and dynamic ways, wordless characters all looking very antagonistic and menacing towards each other while accomplishing these activities, there's also entire books centered around unexplained fights taking places in random locales (dining room, public library...)

    A big chunk of his work is also dedicated to the subject of massive, unfathomable, often unmanned landscaping machines creating enigmatic terrains and structures for purposes that remain unclear, it's like looking at alien public works that obey to a completely hermetic logic


    Very weird.

    Cycling, arguably the most photogenic sport out there, where it's not enough to just be good, you must also look good.
