“Clear moments are so short.
There is much more darkness. More
ocean than terra firma. More
shadow than form.”—Adam Zagajewski, “Moment,” translated by Renata Gorczynski, in Tremor (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 1985)
The cult series’ creator walks us through the four seasons that never existed.
really interesting article, my favorite part is this. quote from show creator:
”I did a Kickstarter campaign for BlackBxx, and I had a person who donated $1,500, a really generous donation, and I had something in there, the Kickstarter-type stuff, “I’ll take you out for dinner.” And I did, I took him out for dinner. It was his wife’s birthday, and he said, “Would you mind sending my wife an email? She’d get a big kick out of it.” And I sat down, and I thought, “I’m going to get this guy so laid.” He was going to give it for her birthday or Christmas or something, and he wanted me to write a note. I sat down, and I just wrote a scene with Jonesy and Samson at Christmastime, and it was like putting on the most comfortable pair of shoes I’ve ever had in my life. It was like, [exhales] “I can’t believe how good it feels to be walking around in these shoes.” The dialogue just spilled out, and they were alive and three-dimensional. The characters are still alive, and they have so much to say, and it was joyful writing it, and then sending this to another person who got immense pleasure from it”
he wrote more of the story, just for one special person. how beautiful. what a gift.
