160. Found notes on } David Lynch’s “Boat.”

--> “At the start of the film boat, a voiceover appeared. That is a girl’s voice….” “When this voice talking… trying to cope with the flashbacks that she’s receiving.” “She woke up in a forest, the light was so bright that she couldn’t….” “…[W]e can see forest… we can see water….” “…[V]oiceovers they seem more knowledgeable about what’s going on in their lives during the moment and what point changed it forever. The women in Boats seems not to know anything about what happened to her prior and what is happening during the moment.” “She is tired and wants to sleep…. She begins to describe what are on the boat just like the string with strange shape.” “The film starts with a tree in a forest, the light is so bright that we can’t see anything clearly. …[T]here is too bright… the bright light changes into dark night….” “Then everything became dark, the girl’s voice appeared again, ‘boat still moving fast, I feel tired…’.” “The camera turned to the man and he said ‘It worked.’” “…[T]he story stopped with the picture of the moon. ... We want to see beautiful things….”

158. Ghosts & } trifles.

“Worse than myself” is a phrase taken from “The Uncommon Prayer-Book,” a story by M. R. James. At The Smart Set, I wrote about Oxford World’s Classics’ latest reprint of James’ Collected Ghost Stories. Also discussed: The Ring, Kate Bush, H. P. Lovecraft, and It Follows. At least have a look at Shannon Sands’ charming illustrations. (See her illustration for “Casting the Runes” above.)

For SHARKPACK, a response to the poem “Traveler’s Monologue” by Cassie Pruyn—“a horse with a second mouth. Mouth and mouth inside its mouth. Duplicitous.”

Rose Metal Press authors were invited to contribute to the Song of the Week series at Coldfront. I wrote about “Nunu” by Mira Calix. Poets off poetry, it saysnot so!
