I'm deranged.



I bet you didn't know it, but the Robert Blake trial is about to enter its fourth week. I know. Who cares.
But is anyone else kind of amazed that Lost Highway is never brought up when journalists/pundits cover Blake? I know, I know, it's a David Lynch film that most of the population has never heard of. But this thing has been dragging on for nearly four years and I have never heard anybody mention it. Consider: (1) it was Blake's last "major" role before "the incident" and (2) it's the tale of an Angeleno who, in a fit of paranoid, jealous rage, murders his wife and then constructs an elaborate alternate reality to deal with the trauma. (Lynch says the film came to him when he saw post-trial O.J. on the golf course, looking totally at peace.)

I'm just sayin'.

Totally off topic but why the fuck does SFJerkoff have a column in the last 3 (or is it 4, i've tried to block it out) new yorkers? none of them being the least bit interesting, and i haven't even read what he's written this week. i didn't mind TOO much when he had one every 6 weeks, but they seemingly didn't think that was enough of his bullshit. maybe they're just publishing all the articles before they fire him (one can hope). i'd take that fricke guy from rolling stone over this douche anyday and i hate fricke.

that's all.

oh, and yea, i can't believe that no one's brought up the coincdences between the trial and "lost highway".

I think you're right on track and not many people are willing to admit that they share your views. delirious lost is an AWESOME place to discuss LOST.
