01/05/2006: "Salmon and Pollock"
On my snowy drive home tonight I thought about what I could do to find my joo joo again (hello joo joo, yah itís Elise, can I come over? *please*? I think I left my t-shirt at your place).
Then I remembered my DVD collection. Zombie films are great when Iím in the zone, but the best thing for getting me there is an artist biopic. I have an entire collection: I Shot Andy Warhol, Crumb, Girl With a Pearl Earring, Surviving Picasso, Camille Claudel, Frida, Modigliani, Vincent and Theo, Basquiat etc...
Anyway, I made up a tasty meal of blackened Alaskan salmon and some steamed veggies and ended up watching the film Pollock. Seeing another artist (especially one who's life was such a wreck) made me feel a lot better. Hey, misery loves company (yah, misery? This is Elise, I think I left my T-shirt at your place).
