ex machina

until last weekend, i had never heard of jesus' son - luckily, i hang around people who prevent me from falling into a monochromatic void filled with technobabble. anyhow, in a perfect example of attentive filtering, i just ran across this review of the new movie based on the book:
"Alison MacLean's film may appear to be another in a rather truncated and peculiar line of movies that perhaps began with Drugstore Cowboy: the needle nostalgia film. These are movies about people shooting heroin and questing for meaning in the seventies, made, one surmises, for people who may or may not have quested for meaning and shot heroin in the late eighties and early nineties while wearing seventies clothes. I hope this doesn't sound too glib and dismissive, however, because Maclean's movie, like the much-revered short-story collection by Denis Johnson on which it is based, happens to be a real work of art, which these days is about as rare as finding someone who still shoots heroin, as opposed to snorts it."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
