  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner is brutal and ambiguous. This essay on seeing it for the first time: it’s right on. This take is more critical than I was for the first 10 years of loving Blade Runner. At some point I could see that a cop tasked with killing a bunch of people is a really strange…

  • Quotes of the Day

    “Monsieur, azonnal kövessen engem bitte.” –Gaff “Lófaszt, nehogy már. Te vagy a Blade.” –Gaff “That gibberish he talked was city speak, gutter talk.

  • Soy Cowboy: Lily Pads & Rock Cod

    After high school, it became something of a fetish of mine to travel from San Diego to Los Angeles and do various sightseeing. One of the things I (and my friend Chris) used to hit was the Art Center College of Design gallery. For us, Art Center was the pinnacle of cool, of talent, of…

  • Neat rumors about a third version of Blade Runner…

    Neat rumors about a third version of Blade Runner. Blade Runner is one of my favorite movies, so this is tasty news.

  • Especially Nina Brosh…

    Especially Nina Brosh. These Nina Brosh photos sort of remind me of Blade Runner – evoking early 20th Century, but also spun in a peculiar, futuristic manner. Blade Runner is supposedly set in Los Angeles, 2019 So how close are we to the bleak world of Blade Runner? We’re in a dystopia already. Just not…
