Odilon Redon - Eyeballs Ablaze

(no subject)

So far I have been rejected as a prospective employee by:
Merrill Lynch
the 92nd Street Y
a diamond wholesaler

Tune in next week to find out who else doesn’t want to hire me!

In other news, my efforts to pimp the Fourth Doctor/Romana II to brooklinegirl inspired me to pop my copy of City of Death into the VCR. Hee! I had forgotten just how bad the FX were. The forced-perspective set of prehistoric Earth: lame. The model-on-fishing-line alien spaceship: lame. The time-lapse dissolves depicting the results of the unstable temporal field: lame. The removing-his-human-mask-to-reveal-his-true-face effect: extraordinarily lame (both the human and jagaroth masks are very bad, and the alien’s head is obviously larger than the actor’s).
