Kens Visit!!

Ken had an amazing life.  It would have been so interesting to have lived during that time.  Not only did he live through the 60’s and the 70’s he was extremely influential.  The Alternative press helped shape the culture by getting art and poems out to the general public.  They did not do it for money or fame.  They did it because someone had to share the amazing work that was going on and that someone was Ken and his wife!

 

Amélie

The thing i like most about Amélie was the fact that the movie was in french.  It was kept in its original form and not dubbed over.  I was able to understand most it without reading the subtitles and it made the film feel much more surreal.  Paris was the central hub of surrealism and Amélie was not lacking in surrealist undertones.  I also enjoyed the fluxus style movies that Amélie made for the man with the brittle bones.  It inspired me and Rebecca to make our Fluxus style final project.  Over all, the development of characters and cinematography made Amélie a move that everyone should see.  Not just surrealist enthusiasts.

The LAKE

Rumor has it the old man still wonders around in his handmade rowboat ,endlessly drifting through Crest Lake.  Looking for his wife, he is endlessly unsatisfied.  The rest of the underpopulated town knows his wife’s fate and what became of her fragile body that humid august day.  And to some extent, the old man knows too but to jolt his aged wondering memory would do no good. So thats how it went and he continued peacefully, not knowing.  Then one day he received a letter.  and the nostalgia overwhelmed him.  The return address was familiar, as was the wonderful smell of the perfume
