You know, I think I'm more interested in reading your blog and your writing (over other dark fiction authors) because you're a paleontologist, but now that I know you used to be a drag queen as well...

There is also something I wanted to ask you. A long time ago on your blog, I vaguely recall you mentioning that part of the reason you wrote Silk is because you were encouraged by either a therapist or a style of therapy, to sort of mythologize your own psyche. Am I making this up? And can you tell me more about it?

Well...I went through a number of rather incompetent therapists between 1987 and 1989, and then I found a woman doing strictly Jungian analysis. She's still my therapist (though I only see her very occassionally now). And yes, she's the one who encouraged me to use my writing as therapy.

Hmm, I picked Raising Arizona and you went with Lebowski. Truly, whichever one I consider the funniest depends largely on which one I've seen more recently. They both make me giggle stupidly. My favorite overall Coen, though, remains Miller's Crossing.

Actually, none of their films have disappointed me, with the possible exception of Blood Simple when I rewatched it years later, having all their subsequent films to compare it to. If not for the sublimely slimy M. Emmet Walsh the movie would be substantially less interesting.

And part of the retroactive Blood Simple boredom would probably entail rewatching Frances McDormand as the comparatively dull Abby after having seen her triumph in Fargo. She was only just starting out, and the role didn't give her a lot to work with.
