Southern California architecture in Lawrence, Kansas

Posted in Cinema, Kansas, Photo with tags on September 8, 2014 by Dylan Thomas Hayden


The Granada movie theatre in Lawrence, Kansas was still around when I was a kid, though it had a different marquee, and the bus station had moved further down Massachusetts Street. This photo from October 1938 taken by John Vachon is one of the tens of thousands of documentary images compiled by the Farm Security Administration, part of FDR’s New Deal during the Great Depression. The entire archive is now available online.

Outsider?

GB:
Many of us would like to think that we relate to you because we’re outsiders. For many you epitomize that “outsider” characteristic. Would that be a fair assessment of you or is it wide off the mark?

John Lurie:
I am not sure what you mean by “outsider” here. I try to stay as close as I can to what I feel is real, ignoring whatever the popular trends are. I am not sure what I am outside of. I think that anyone following the trail of babble and unaware of what’s really real is actually the outsider, even if there are a lot of them.

From this recent interview.

The Gilded Bat, one of my personal favourites among Edward Gorey’s books, clearly shows the influence of Feuillade’s Vampires.
