In A Lonely Place (1950) – Ending Scene (3/3)

When he gets home, Dix checks up on Laurel. He finds she is an aspiring actress with only a few low-budget films to her credit. They begin to fall in love and, with Laurel assisting him, Dix finds new energy and goes back to work with enthusiasm, much to his agent’s delight.

Dix remains notoriously erratic, however; sometimes he behaves strangely. He says things that make his agent Mel and Brub’s wife Sylvia (Jeff Donnell) wonder if he did kill the girl. Lochner sows seeds of doubt in Laurel’s mind, pointing out Dix’s long record of violent behavior. When he learns about this, and that Laurel has not told him of her meeting with Lochner, Dix becomes furious and irrational. With her a terrified passenger, he drives at high speed until they sideswipe another car. Nobody is hurt in the collision, but when the other driver accosts him, Dix beats him unconscious and is about to strike him with a large rock when Laurel stops him.

Laurel gets to the point where she cannot sleep without taking pills. Her distrust and fear of Dix are becoming too much for her. When he asks her to marry him, she accepts, but only because she is too scared of what he might do if she’d refused. She secretly makes a plane reservation and tells Mel she is leaving because she cannot take it anymore. Dix finds out and becomes violent, almost strangling her before he regains control of himself. Just then the phone rings. It is Brub with good news: Mildred’s boyfriend (named Henry Kesler, the same as the film’s associate producer) has confessed to her murder. Tragically, it is too late to salvage Dix and Laurel’s relationship.


Ya voy en la segunda taza de café

Hola, te cuento Mariana.  El cambio de horario. Se puso tan obscuro a las cinco y media que me levanté de la siesta pensando que era de mañana. Ya voy en la segunda taza de café.

Yo soy de hacer, no de estar. Cuando mi marido me dice, “vamos a sentarnos en la sala a pasar el rato juntos”. Yo le agrego, “¿y a ver por la ventana?” 

¿Ya paso el mes Mariana? ¿Se vale hablar el tarot?

Te pregunto por mis afirmaciones porque (llenar a su gusto) entonces aquí es donde lo del tarot regresa. Cuando construyo mis afirmaciones les busco una foto. Tomo de como representan los conceptos en las barajas para inspirarme.  

¿Qué opinas?

Blue Cell: Der Blanke Hans (Original Mix)

What is a blue cell?

Small round blue cell tumor: a group of childhood tumors that is characterized by a similar appearance under the microscope. The appearance is that of small, round, primitive cells that stain blue with conventional staining techniques for biopsy analysis. The small round blue cell tumors include neuroblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and the Ewing’s family of tumors. Sometimes other tumor types are included in this group. In any case, small round blue cell tumors are malignant tumors that are hard to distinguish from each other using conventional microscopic analysis. Specialized laboratory testing, including molecular diagnostic tests, are used to differentiate one type of these tumors from another. It is essential to determine the exact type of tumor, because the treatments for these tumors are different based on their type.

REMIND (FR) – Orpheus (Original Mix)

The story starts in 2013 where a longing to share avant-garde music culminated in the creation of the channel – an outlet intent on showcasing nothing but the most distinctive four to the floor sounds.

Mia Mendi has relentlessly evolved moment to moment, both stylistically and conceptually. Fast-forward to present day and the name now represents an artistic duo obsessed with uniting melancholic ambience, loaded drums and modulating melodic leads, through producing their own tracks and DJing.

This is esoteric production beautifully sewn together with the threads of bedlam – made to move you through a string of sombre dreams.
