Ghostville

1-ghostville_039small

It’s hard to tell time when time won’t tell you.

(I need the Clockmaker, come on back though.)

2-ghostvillet_032small

You can’t play chess if the Kings and Queens have departed.

(Talkin’ ’bout a revolution?)

3-ghostville_038smallfix

If a picture is leaning one way, leaning the other way won’t straighten it.

(You see what I did there.)

4-ghostville_035smallFix

No one expects the Serbian Rokenrol.

(Give it up for Vlada i Gile!)

5-ghostville_041small

A downward step can begin an upward journey.

(But don’t count on it.)

Noir

Hollow Triumph

Paul Henreid: You’re a bitter little lady.

Joan Bennett: It’s a bitter little world.

The Big Sleep

Humphrey Bogart regarding Lauren Bacall:

She was worth a stare. She was trouble.

noir2small

The Big Steal

Robert Mitchum: I don’t usually make it a habit to butt into women’s affairs,

but what’s this guy Fisk to you?

Jane Greer: Don’t change your habits on my account.

noir3small

Ace in the Hole

Jan Sterling: I don’t pray.

Kneeling bags my nylons.

noir4small

Farewell, My Lovely

Dick Powell: I caught the blackjack right behind my ear.

A black pool opened up at my feet.

I dived in.

It had no bottom.

noir5small

Detour

Tom Neal: Money. You know what that is. The stuff you never have enough of.

Little green things with George Washington’s picture that men slave for, commit crimes for, die for.

It’s the stuff that has caused more trouble in the world than anything else ever invented.

Simply because there’s too little of it.

noir6small

The Big Steal

Jane Greer to Robert Mitchum: What I like about you is you’re rock bottom.

I wouldn’t expect you to understand this,

but it’s a great comfort for a girl to know she could not possibly sink any lower.

noir7small

The Woman in the Window

Edward G. Robinson to Joan Bennett: There are only three ways to deal with a blackmailer.

You can pay him and pay him and pay him until you’re penniless.

Or you can call the police yourself and let your secret be known to the world.

Or you can kill him.

noir8small

Blade Runner

Harrison Ford: [narrating] I don’t know why he saved my life.

Maybe in those last moments he loved life more than he ever had before.

Not just his life – anybody’s life; my life. All he’d wanted were the same answers the rest of us want.

Where did I come from? Where am I going? How long have I got?

All I could do was sit there and watch him die.

Enchantment

Who can tell me if we have heaven,

Who can say the way it should be;

enchantment1small

Earth’s last picture, the end of evening

Hue of indigo and blue.

enchantment2small

Moonlight holly, the Sappho Comet,

Angel’s tears below a tree.

enchantment3small

A new moon leads me to

Woods of dreams and I follow.

enchantment4small

A new world waits for me;

My dream, my way.

enchantment5small

I know that if I have heaven

There is nothing to desire.

enchantment6small

Rain and river, a world of wonder

May be paradise to me.

Get Right With God

Get down with him

grwg1procSm

I would risk the serpent’s bite
I would dance around with seven
I would kiss the diamond back
If I knew it would get me to heaven

grwg2procSM

‘Cause I want to get right with God
Yes, you know you got to get right with God

grwg5procSm

I would burn the soles of my feet
Burn the palms of both my hands
If I could learn and be complete
If I could walk righteously again

grwg4procSm

I would sleep on a bed of nails
‘Till my back was torn and bleeding
In the deep darkness of Hell
The Damascus of my meeting

grwg6procSm

I asked God about his plan
To save us all from Satan’s slaughter
If I give up one of my lambs
Will you take me as one of your daughters?

grwg3procSm

‘Cause I want to get right with God
Yes, you know you got to get right with God

On the Extinction of the Venetian Republic

venexia1
Once did She hold the gorgeous east in fee;
And was the safeguard of the west: the worth
.
venexia2
Of Venice did not fall below her birth,
Venice, the eldest Child of Liberty.
.
venexia3
She was a maiden City, bright and free;
No guile seduced, no force could violate;
.
venexia6
And, when she took unto herself a Mate,
She must espouse the everlasting Sea.
.
venexia5
And what if she had seen those glories fade,
Those titles vanish, and that strength decay;
.
venexia4
Yet shall some tribute of regret be paid
When her long life hath reached its final day:
.
venexia7
Men are we, and must grieve when even the Shade
Of that which once was great is passed away.
.
