Slicing up Eyeballs

Un Chien Andalou is on Netflix. This excites me. For those of you that don't know, Un Chien Andalou is a silent surrealist film made by Salvador Dalí (and director Luis Buñuel), and the Pixies track Debaser makes reference to the film in both the chorus and lyrics such as "slicing up eyeballs..." It was playing on the projector screen behind the band when I saw them in Hollywood for one of the original shows that was part of what was supposed to be a "limited" Doolittle 20th anniversary tour. The band actually extended the tour over to many other international cities over the next couple years.

With all that said, I now plan to actually watch the film, which I'm sure will be a mind-bending experience.

If Two Cents Could Buy Real Change: Bipartisan America

Are you all worked up after the debate? Stress levels running high, and you're ready to pounce on the first tweeter or facebooker or blogger that says something with which you don't agree? Congratulations. The government and media have succeeded in turning you into a pawn. My suggestion? Eat bacon and look at cute cats on the Internet instead. Then vote for someone other than the two major party candidates.
