“Hello, I’m Leos Carax, director of foreign-language films. I’ve been making foreign-language films my whole life. Foreign-language films are made all over the world, of course, except in America. In America, they only make non-foreign-language films. Foreign-language films are very hard to make, obviously, because you have to invent a foreign language instead of using the usual language. But the truth is, cinema is a foreign language, a language created for those who need to travel to the other side of life. Good night.”

Director Leos Carax accepts his award from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association for best-foreign language film for Holy Motors.

Cosmic owls are not what they seem.
2013 was the year I finally got around to watching Twin Peaks and Adventure Time. After watching them back to back with mentalguyart and yutrzenika, we couldn’t help but start drawing parallels between the two. mentalguyart and I have decided to do a series of occasional AT/TP mash-up images.

“The poet’s, the writer’s, duty is to write about these things. It is his privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart, by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past. The poet’s voice need not merely be the record of man, it can be one of the props, the pillars to help him endure and prevail.”
