its been a long time since i've replied to anything on
i was just sorting through 2783 messages in my
frameworks folder, and narrowed it down to 286
messages that i want to read.... damn... i gotta
switch to the digest version.... i just never get
around to it.

and this is one of them.

i've been in amsterdam for the past 4 months and
eating a lot of couscous.... and every single time i
eat couscous... i think of fassbinders ali:fear eats
the soul. literally, everytime i eat couscous, or
hear about couscousl, or think about couscous... i
think of different scenes from that film... even
scenes that have nothing to do with couscous at
all.... the two of them sitting at the table in the
garden park, the restaurant, the dance floor, the
hallway, the stairway....

so needless to say, even though it's been years since
i've seen that film, i've been thinking about it a lot
lately.... and now i see a thread "sort of" about it
here. bizarre.

anyhow... freya... sounds to me like you might be in
the mood for "in the mood for love" by wong kar
wai..... maybe you've already seen it... but if not,
it's a good one... and not as upsetting as our daily

take care,
