Hi there! It's been wintery. Heavens is running a little late. But it's turning out really well and both Peter and I are excited about the 5th episode, we're also both pretty busy with work and other projects. In other news, I recently directed a music video for my friends Titans of Industry. Below: Staged reenactments of Studio Watching Patch at work. Did I ever tell you that I did not go deep into the Borges labyrinth? I got really interested in the first essay while taking the wrong bus early in the morning. Had to take a cab after that. Never forgave that massive book. I actually returned it to the library without even finishing that first essay. It didn't help that I found an Ida Lupino biography at a yard sale.

At first I was only interested in Borges because he collaborated with Adolfo Biuy Casares. The stories I read of his seemed cold and academic and didn't really grab me. Then I read Dreamtigers last month and now I am really discovering his incredible imagination and preoccupations. I'm reading a really big-ass book of his essays now. I'm going in deep guys. Deep into the Borges labyrinth. If you care to join me a little you can check out this "Mirror Man" movie that's pretty good. It also features an interview with Adolfo Biuy Casares, which I was pretty excited about! Even though it's kind of brief!
