This Gun for Hire/The Blue Dahlia
(1942/1946) The perfect model for a movie actor is a short person with a big head. Alan Ladd fit these specs as if he were designed by special order. The small but fierce Ladd starts off the Stanford's excellent film noir/pre-Code festival in two films with his equally diminutive lead, Veronica Lake. In This Gun for Hire (somewhat based on a Graham Greene novel), Ladd plays a cat-loving hit man who goes up against Nazi collaborators under the nervous protection of ace villain Laird Cregar. A little amoral blonde singer at Cregar's club (Lake) confuses matters. BILLED WITH The Blue Dahlia, the better picture. It deals with a pair of army buddies who return from World War II to a dismal new life. Ladd's wife (Doris Dowling) is sleeping around, and his child is dead, thanks to her negligence; his buddy Buzz (William Bendix, never better) has a plate in his head that gives him violent headaches and potentially murderous spells whenever the music gets too loud. The script is by Raymond Chandler, but the cop-out ending is strictly from Hollywood. (RvB)

Word of the Day for Thursday April 6, 2006

hobbledehoy \HOB-uhl-dee-hoy\, noun:
An awkward, gawky young fellow.

For early on, girls become aware -- as much from their
fathers' anguished bellows of "You're not going out dressed
like that, Miss" as from the buffoonish reactions of the
spotty hobbledehoys at the end-of-term disco -- of the
power of clothes to seduce.
-- Jane Shilling, "Soft-centred punk", [1]Times (London),
October 27, 2000

His memories, even only reveries, of incomparable women,
made me feel like a hulking hobbledehoy.
-- Edith Anderson, [2]Love in Exile

in the IEF framework the medium (“the solvent”) is represented by a continuous medium characterized by some specific macroscopic physical properties, in particular its dielectric permittivity. the molecular system under scrutiny (“the solute”) is assumed to be immersed in such continuous medium, or better in a cavity of proper form and dimension (the molecular cavity) created inside it.

miles davis & filmographie & l'ascenseur & lift

Corría el año 1957, y Miles Davis estaba en el entonces punto culminante de su carrera, tras haber grabado el año anterior las sesiones de su primer gran quinteto (con John Coltrane) y, en el presente, haberse enfrentado a una original formación orquestal a cargo de Gil Evans en Miles Ahead.

La popularidad de Miles en Europa era cada vez mayor, y a finales de año fue invitado a ofrecer una serie de conciertos en París a cargo de un combo en su mayoría local que conformaban Barney Wilen (saxo tenor), René Urtreger (piano), Pierre Michelot (contrabajo) y el americano Kenny Clarke (batería). Cuando el trompetista llegó al aeropuerto parisino allí se encontraba esperándole uno de sus mayores fans: el director de cine Louis Malle. Malle estaba trabajando en su largometraje L’Ascenseur por L’Echafaud ("Ascensor hacia la horca"), y aprovechó la visita de Davis para solicitarle grabar la banda sonora de la película. Miles aceptó, y con ese gesto abrió la puerta a uno de los proyectos que más iba a aportar a su música, a su búsqueda y al jazz en general....

bukowski / the great slob

The Great Slob (from "Septuagenarian Stew" 1994)

I was always a natural slob
I liked to lay upon the bed
in undershirt (stained, of
course) (and with cigarette
shoes off
beerbottle in hand
trying to shake off a
difficult night, say with a
woman still around
walking the floor
complaining about this and
and I'd work up a
belch and say, "HEY, YOU DON'T

I really loved myself, I
really loved my slob-
self, and
they seemed to also:
always leaving
but almost

the real bukowski!

coltrane / hot supreme

Juzo Itami, the director of the Japanese film "Tampopo," may be the most impenitent hedonist the movies have ever seen. As a filmmaker, he revels in sensual pleasure, and the spirit of his film is exultant, orgiastic. The movie has been described elsewhere as "Zen and the Art of Noodle-making," but its spirit couldn't be less Zen-like. Itami isn't interested in detachment. He's a zesty, immoderate connoisseur of pleasure-taking in all its forms -- food, sex, movies -- and he jumbles them all together here into a hilarious concoction. It's half movie, half dessert-topping -- a film gourmand's lusty dream... read further: By Hal Hinson, Washington Post Staff Writer, June 17, 1987

(1986) Juzo Itami's comedy about the endless human desire for food is full of delightful interludes, including a small child's first introduction to the delights of an ice cream cone after a strict health-food upbring. (MSG) by http://www.metroactive.com/movies/capsule-ta.html

Nobelprisvinderen Knut Hamsuns mytiske bøger bliver med tiden ikke forældede eller uaktuelle. De har tværtimod vundet kampen med tiden og er blevet uforklarligt moderne...

Knut Hamsun Lever!

Information 21-11-2005
På vandring med vores tanker møder vi igen Hamsun. Fæstnet dybt i vores indre væsen rører han os stadig.

Sagt om Hamsun (Sep 2005)

Norske konge tilgiver Hamsun (Nov. 2003)
Jeg bukker mig for mange års pres med en kort artikel om Hamsuns forhold til nazismen (også på engelsk). Artiklen har jeg skrevet med det formål at kunne referere nye Hamsunlæsere til et kort og brugbart svar på dette komplekse spørgsmål, og samtidigt med det håb, at det polemiske kan stoppe dér. Hamsuns vante læsere bruger ikke meget energi på spørgsmålet.
