From Maurice Pialat's Le Garçu, his final film, which I saw Friday night at BAM with a number of Brooklyn film nerds before watching the Rockets break down. This shot is, as Dave put it, really cinematic on top of, as we boys may put it, really sexy. And that turn on is really cool, too. I may write something more coherent about its more safe-for-work qualities later. But it's late now and I should pass out. Got plenty to do tomorrow. --RWK

I don't hate the Lakers ... I like them, I guess. Mostly bc its fun to watch a great player be great. That being said, Ron Artest (haircut and all) is so cool and Kobe is so easily put into his place as an LA brat. have you seen his face when he's winning??? ewww. much less losing. Fuck a Lebron/Kobe matchup. it wont be close. I hope a more passionate "team" goes on to play the Cavs, who very much deserve to beat anybody they end up against. The Rafer thing is weird. If he did it to anyone but a Celtic, id probably be more skeptical of him now. but i sympathize with him. fuck you Doc, fuck you Ed House.
Also, I wasnt able to extract the one post on its own, but on free Darko (a blog I go back and forth on), today's post about Dirk was really great. Its called "What's Safe, Sound and Vulgar." It has to do with Dirk specifically and race relations in the NBA generally. I highly rec'd it. thanks, sincerely, cuyler.
