Whole lotta Criterion geekery going on round my parts, and this post on Collection guy Peter Becker's blog about deciding how to design the cover for the CC edition of Night in the City is just feeding it. As is Criterion Contraption, L.A. dude Matthew Dessem's very entertaining chronicle of his attempt to watch every single DVD in the collection. Last night A. and I went to the newly opened SIFF cinema at McCaw Hall in the Seattle Center, 50 feet from my old apartment (sigh) and saw Rashomon, and hopefully I'll be seeing more in their Janus Film archive series as well. Geek geek geek etc.
I used to sell hologram bolo ties at the Mall of America
