The Hot Fuzz Connection (Or, Call me a Commie): Having not yet seen the movie Hot Fuzz, I’ll have to take Source Dorks‘ Gus at his word when he writes: “On display in the current [Walker] exhibition Paper Trail: A Decade of Acquisitions is a print by Fiona Banner called Break Point which reproduces, in red text, a description of one of the climactic action sequences in the movie Point Break. The same scene serves as the main pay off for the movie Hot Fuzz, which you must be some kind of communist to have not seen by now.”

Lynch goes deep: Utne Reader podcasts an interview with filmmaker David Lynch on the connection between painting (Lynch’s first love) and film; the origins of the title of his new book, Catching the Big Fish; and Transcendental Meditation, which he’s been practicing daily since “a Saturday morning, 10:30, July 1, 1973.”

Krushed: “The art blogs of the moment are eclipsing traditional forms of commentary, exploiting the boundlessness of cyberspace to diversify our notions of art and the art world,” writes Artkrush. So how come none of our blogs made the cut?

    Having seen Hot Fuzz I can say that you must be some kind of communist terrorist if you don’t see it.

    Also, regarding Mr. Lynch, I read an interesting article about him preferring DV to film:

    I’m through with film as a medium. For me, film is dead. If you look at what people all over the world are taking still pictures with now, you begin to see what’s going to happen.

    I’m shooting in digital video and I love it. I have a Web site and I started doing small experiments for the site with these small cameras, at first thinking they were just like little toys, and they were not very good. But then I started realizing that they’re very, very good — for me, at least.
