slogged to the end of Black Mirror out of some trudging obligation.

The humour shines through with bloody Belinda Carlisle juxtaposed with a burial scene straight out of Modern Warfarin, and the bloody robot bees man -

Overall, definitely something I'd show to my imaginary unruly 9 year old children if I'd ever bothered to perpetuate my DNA.

Ho hum.

Storyville - Notes on Blindness

Utterly spellbinding documentary on Theology Professor John Hull's descent (entrance?) into a sightless world in the 1970s/80, captured on audio tape, (personal memoirs, recorded interviews etc), those words being lip-synched by actors. HIs wife being terrified he was entering a world where she couldn't follow, his sense of when his newborn baby was looking at him, his dream of his daughter, of seeing her for the first-time, of seeing those "beautiful brown eyes that everyone talks about" and then waking up and feeling utterly bereft... and his ultimate positivity. Heartbursting. Storyville is a National Treasure, I think.


Have just watched this. His description of rain & how if it could be transposed into his house he'd be more able to recognise space & objects by the different sounds it makes is wonderful. It is lovely.

Yes, a sonar of sorts.

The Tom Waits doc from yesterday on BBC4. Not so keen on his 70's work and persona but will have to explore some of his material after Raindogs, on the strength of the footage in this doc.

Talking of Mr Waites, I worked with him on a rather cool pilot last year. It seemed to be a hallucinogenic occult Latinos in L.A. sort of a show for Hulu. Sadly I don't think it was picked up. The director was a very nice chap also.

Hah!

The YouTube algorithms can take a person to some strange places.
