They Told Some Stories Like You've Never Seen

Ruins --- flowers outside the mall

I can't seem to ever put together the usual kind of book/movie/music overview mega-post that is the main purpose of this blog (and I'm off to Montana/Indiana tomorrow, on an airplane of all things--I can hardly believe it; I've been looking up at the sky in awe--so don't expect one until August), but enjoy these photos for now. I discovered, a while back, Robert Adams' collection of photos of the Northwest coast, This Day, and it was an amazing read, one that I'll forever aspire to. I’d love to write fiction that replaces narrative with the kind of momentum this book generates.

All the above photos taken with a cell phone, and not my own. I have every hope of buying a camera sometime soon. If anyone can recommend a nice and inexpensive one, please do so in the comments.

Bonus: Four images from Battle Royale (Kinji Fukasaku, 2000). The first one, in particular, is the reason I watch movies.
