7 Days of Badalamenti: Day 7 - Dance of the Dream Man


If there's a more iconic piece of music out there from the last forty years, I'm not sure what it is. Saving the greatest for last - although the show's iconic theme "falling" could be argued to hold that title - thus ends my seven-day observance/tribute to one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century. A heart-rending loss and, if you'll indulge in a moment of maudlin sentiment, a very large reminder that as we age and move toward our own outro from this reality, the icons we encounter and make a part of our own lives will leave and force us to remember that, yes, it is all deteriorating around us. We'll always have the man's music, but knowing he is gone feels a lot like when we lost Bowie - a large chunk has disappeared and left a hole in things.

But, as Dr. Jacoby might say, we carry on. Well, Major Briggs would probably say that. Jacoby would probably recommend doing some blow.


After Christian Bale's performance in Amsterdam, he's back on my radar. Here's the trailer for his latest film, The Pale Blue Eye (great title!):

Not sure what to make of this yet, other than it is gorgeous. I really dug Scott Cooper's previous flick, Antlers, so while there's almost no chance this will be in a theatre anywhere near me, I will be waiting for its release on Netflix on January 6th.

Understanding what I want is the only way to achieve it. Sounds like a no-brainer, however, when applied to fiction writing, I can assure you, it is not.
