Been working on some things in the background over here at Boredom Pays inc. but mostly have just been absorbing as much art as I can.
I’ve been obsessing over some of Kubricks films. Like, I just watched Eyes Wide Shut last night and it completely floored me. Such a fantastic film and incredibly relevant to a lot of the things I’ve been thinking about relationships over the past few months. Plus, the way it’s shot, the dialogue, the pacing, colors acting and use of music? Holy Christ.
Also, been reading a lot of R. Crumb comics. It has taken me a long time to come around to reading a lot of his work because I find some of it pretty offensive have had a hard time getting past some of the pornographic (not because I find it offensive, just uninteresting) elements of some of his work. And… I don’t quite know how I feel about his work quite yet but I’m blown away by the total honesty and complete lack of self censorship he seems to apply to his work. It’s just… refreshing. Even when some of the things he talks about are uncomfortable to sit through. I dunno. The more I read the more I fall in love with his work. So good!
