Mr. Mojo Rising

This guy is heading back to Singapore shortly. I've been re-doing his original cape. A puppy mauled the first one. Here he is hanging out in the Yukon woods back in the fall. (and he is so not singing 'All By Myself' to himself. Not).
M named him 'Mojo'.

I watched an Emily Carr documentary tonight  'Winds Of  Heaven' @ the film festival. That was very great. So much good footage. All I want to do now is make a totem pole. I've been thinking about it for awhile now.

btw. That Joan Rivers' PIECE OF WORK documentary is excellent. Highly recommended. My jaw dropped on 2 or 3 times. I couldn't believe the stuff she was saying. She is merciless. And amazing. 75! Unstoppable. 

"Never Let Me Go"

I'm on a Carey Mulligan jag so i got 'Never Let Me Go' and 'The Greatest' out of the friendly neighborhood movie rental joint Up Here in Whitehorse. (CM makes good choices. i like to watch shtars rise 2 fame, fame. GO CM).

NEVER LET ME GO (a 2010 British dystopian drama film based on the 2005 novel of the same name written by Kazuo Ishiguro) is so, so, so good. It is My Kind Of Movie. I'm 3/4s the way through because i was watching it so late last night and weeping willow and had to 'pause it' for 24 hrs so that i may collect myself for the final 1/4 heartbreaker.

It is about eternal love and clones. In England.

It's weird that i would 'advertise' a movie but I'm only trying to let you know it's so good & WATCH IT. cos when we tell each other these things we are really only talking about ourselves.
it's a human condition.
to talk about things this way. 

And besides. Next time we see each other we will have something to talk about.

I'm also on my omnipresent 'the EXORCIST' jag (research for a project) and found this great image above which fits (dovetails) nicely with the lisa germano album art for 'lullabye for liquid pig. In classic Ahlers form, i still havent listened to the album.  In other classic Ahlers form, i've probably already 'blogged' this image but.  There Is No Time Like the Present).

what's this business?

NicksBucks and Room With A View. Once Helena Bonham Carter guest starred in an episode of Miami Sonny's girlfriend! What a shock that was.
