time code

 How'd this one sneak up one me? All About Lily Chou-Chou must be the first movie to be based on an internet novel (go ahead, name another). It's also about one man's obsession with Hong Kong pop star Faye Wong, who I've been prone to describe in embarrassingly fawning terms ever since Chungking Express. The Voice has a review.

 Similarly, I've been wondering what Mike Figgis has been doing since Timecode, his last experimental film that touched buttons with web geeks interested in new narrative techniques. Apparently his new film, Hotel, uses a similar four-screen mechanism. Shift has the scoop.

 I have something to confess: my adoration of Ellen Feiss. That's all.

 In other Apple advert news, parodies are showing up of the Switch campaign, such as here and here and here and here and here.

 Gimme. Or even better, gimme.

 A funny and fascinating collection of True Porn Clerk Stories.

 A 1951 newspaper clipping of William Burroughs' William Tell act.

 Bjork has a new site. It looks bloggy.

 Just when you thought Camille Paglia had become inconsequential and unimportant... she becomes inconsequential and unimportant.
