Did you mean: Scallions
ooh- I see I should have googled that first. The ones I’m referring to happened in the late 90s/early 2000s and were simply gatherings where we watched favorite Scully-centric episodes, played games, ate food, and raised money for charity. Looks like there’s others that have cropped up, which may be perfectly fine but I claim no affiliation with. Especially if the word slash is involved.
#streetcar named desire
Wow, I only got 4 :( How was streetcar? I love Gillian Anderson! Have you watched the Fall?
Streetcar was very good, I highly recommend it if it’s in your area. (it appears to be showing in quite a few places and there are October dates
). Gillian Anderson is one of those actors who so fully inhabits a character that you almost forget it’s her. She’s amazing (and also performs much of the show in precarious footwear, which probably contributes to your impression of Blanche’s instability), and the rest of the cast is solid as well. Putting theater onscreen can be challenging, but there are so many shifts in camera angle (almost too many) that you lose the static feeling of staring straight ahead at a stage on a flat screen. One odd thing is that the production was done in the round, and the stage itself turns continually, which with the shifting camera angles sometimes was a bit disorienting, and occasionally resulted in lines being delivered while the camera was focused on someone’s back or behind a post. Also the transitions between scenes are kind of jarring. But those are nitpicks, overall it was great.
Thanks for reminding me about The Fall! I posted about it earlier in the year and haven’t gotten around to watching it. It’s weird, I seem to be able to waste endless hours online, but have a hard time forcing myself to watch anything on my TV, despite having a Roku and thus access to much great stuff.
btw, that Guardian “Scully or Blanche” quiz is a blatant ripoff of my popular “Scully or Sagan” game that I trotted out for a number of Scullythons in the early 2000s. Yes, I said “Scullythons”. If I can find the quiz I’ll post it here, but as this was a couple of defunct PCs ago I’m afraid it may be lost to time/inaccessible hard drives.
This is what looks like a press release or an advert from their old record label “53rd and 3rd” for their first EP in 1987. I don’t know who wrote the piece but the artwork is by Aggi Wright from The Pastels and it clearly depicts Eugene eating jelly tots off Frances’ stomach.

Gutteridge wrote this at age 17, geesh, what was I doing at 17, sulking and that’s pretty much it.
(from Pitchfork, so you may have seen it, but if not you should. Chris Richardson’s youtube comment from 6 months ago is perhaps unfortunate, given present circumstances, but still kind of funny)
Wait, so if that London National Theater production is live and showing in Boston at 7pm, then they’re doing it in London from midnight to 2am? I mean, I assume by “National Theatre Live”, it means it’s really live and really at the National Theater? And now word has come in from one of my Vancouver buddies that he’s seeing it on the 21st, so.. does it start earlier in Vancouver? Or are they really doing a production at 3am? Are they selling tickets at that time, or just performing for cameras? Or is it actually recorded earlier? I’m so confused..
Hang On - Peter Gutteridge
