Well, NYE celebrations in Oz were somewhat muted (can't think why), but at least the only Australian NYE tradition that matters went ahead without a hitch, & by that I mean the annual (30 years running!) TV airing of CAN'T STOP THE MUSIC #HappyNewYear2022

According to ancient wisdom, a new Diane episode dropping on New Year's Eve heralded a bountiful and prosperous year to come

It's Diane 88. Seasion Three, Episode 17 in detail. We go deep into the woods and see ourselves coming back the other way. (And they aren't even woods.) #TwinPeaks #DavidLynch #MarkFrost

I realize this will be inconvenient for those of you who may be obliged to remain, say, twelve years old for a decade or so, but we all knew there would be sacrifices

I've decided: since time has for all intents & purposes stopped, none of our birthdays that have taken place since the start of the pandemic count. Thus, I have been 36 for the past 2 years, & 3-goddamn-6 I will remain until my next post-pandemic birthday, even if that's in 2092

For the unfamiliar: Sayadian was, under the handle of "Rinse Dream", the director of New-Wave-Surrealist-art-sex-freakery classics CAFE FLESH and DR CALIGARI (& also the poster artist for DRESSED TO KILL & BODY DOUBLE). His visual sensibility is as identifiable as a fingerprint.

In fact, I think you’ve rekindled my love of Silk Stalkings + we’re just gonna keep going with the love. That staircase from before? Apparently that’s where Detective Rita Lee actually lives!

Every single thing about this piece is absolutely perfect, from central thesis to gorgeous prose. Professional poets are the only people who should ever be allowed to publicly voice opinions about superhero movies

This piece is so, so great: "BATMAN RETURNS feels sort of like a comic book that got left out in the rain, trampled into a mud puddle, and then taken home by an outcast pervert who drew weird doodles on all the pages"

New today on the site: “We Have To Live Out Our Precise Experimentation” - @eccantwell on BATMAN RETURNS and its “unfettered embrace of the twisted and the pathetic, the askew and the abject.”

Not to subtweet any extremely bad New Yorker articles that every goddamn writer I know is currently retweeting into my timeline, but I'll be fucked if I'll take writing advice from any article that cites Will fucking Self as any kind of authority
