Why there's no PathÈ in Pathetic

Used to be you'd see people at the US Open in their tennis whites and carrying a racket, as if they just wanted to be ready, just in case Rod Laver's doubles partner twisted his ankle, and he'd turn to the stands and say, "Mind helping me finish this set?"

In the same deluded way, a month ago, I took four Netflix DVD's off the dresser and put them in my bag, I guess so I'd be ready to watch them at any moment.

[Note: Everyone else should use GreenCine, of course. I use Netflix because, until I started essentially paying them for the privilege of storing their DVD's, my charter member fee-for-life and my personal viewing rate was ridiculously unprofitable. Now that I'm apparently not watching DVD's at all, maybe I should make the switch to the GreenCine alternative.]

[FYI, they're The Office: Season 1, Spirited Away, Pasolini's The Gospel According to St Matthew, and Dumont's L'HumanitÈ]

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
