Sorry for the light posting. Been busy with some other projects, other gigs, and whatnot. Also bothered by several thoroughly dispiriting events of the week. "Topics" might go up some time today at The Auteurs', that'll be fun. (UPDATE: Et voila.) In the meantime I'll be spending the Columbus Day weekend away from the intertubes if I can help it, so enjoy this little evocation of pig-headedness and futility, from one of Manny Farber's top films of 1951, and I'll see you late Monday.
