New Trailer: ‘Orange Is the New Black' Season 2 - June 6
Rinko Kikuchi for Jalouse China December 2013 by Jumbo Tsui
One day we were shooting “Portlandia” downtown and we went to eat in the lunchroom of this church where they were having an art show. This season’s shoot was really hard; I felt very pushed and challenged, and I was tired and disoriented a lot. I remember sitting down and seeing this painting on a canvas. It said: “If you can, please wake up.” It’s this weird, dark, intense phrase that almost sounded like something like a kid would say to his parents. And that became my mantra for the whole rest of the shoot.
I spent two weeks chasing down the artist— he was the security guard at the building. I told him how much that painting meant to me and how it had really gotten me through the shoot and he said, “I would be happy to sell it to you if it means that much to you.” So about a month ago, I drove over to his house and bought the painting from him.

Emily, I would prefer to discuss this in private messages.
Like the naked leads the blind.
I know I’m selfish, I’m unkind.
Sucker love I always find,
Someone to bruise and leave behind.

And this is how it starts
Take your shoes off in the back of my van
Yeah my shirt looks so good,
When it’s just hanging off your back
The college radio DJ has played 22 mountain goats songs in a row without comment, and I feel like someone should call and make sure they’re ok.
« Can you see? The two lovers over here. The man with the hat and the red-haired girl. »
What i find very interesting in the Nighthawks of Hopper is the couple at the bar who slightly touch their hands. Or maybe they’re strangers and they share important information for a dangerous mobster or maybe they’re cops and take a break after a long journey? Perhaps the barman who smile at them is a dangerous murderer and they’re going to catch him just after Madame had finished her peanuts?
