We Must Wait

tellthebees:

Nothing interrupts the placid flow of a Ken Burns documentary like the voice of Werner Herzog reading an edict from the nazi ministry for propaganda outlawing both blacks and jazz music. Jesus, that startled me.

"I think there are specific times where film noir is a natural concomitant of the mood. When there’s insecurity, collapse of financial systems - that’s where film noir always hits fertile ground."

Anonymous asked: How do one get to take Werner Herzog in a trip to a wierd place in the world?

First one must progress from shallow to deep by degrees: walk, with no supplies, the breadth of the Siberian tundra. Write down everything you see and perceive. Then burn what you’ve written. Steep the ashes in a black tea and inhale but do not drink. The specter of Herzog will appear and he will go with you to no more than three places you’ve never been. After your journeys, and if he finds you to be adequately prepared for the responsibility, he will give you an iguana. Take care of this iguana, for it contains your soul.
