Introduction

In an effort to track my viewing, I have decided to imitate my friend Cam Moneo’s approach of taking snapshots of films and logging them on a blog. I think he said it best in his own introduction to his site, that such a blog “does go to show you that nearly every film is graced with at least one memorable image.”

For Cam’s blogs, see: 2010, 2011.

And I’m back!

After months away
Eyes without sleaze to clean them
Are rinsed in scum juice.

A fable ’bout motherhood
