Sinking Hearts is a gothic soap opera in the tradition of Dark Shadows, Twin Peaks and True Blood. Except that it incorporates drag, gay sailors and the work of Kafka, so… there’s that.
In Sinking Hearts a psychic Navy wife named Misty Nagel moves to a secluded submarine base in Washington State with her sailor husband and bitch daughter. There are lots of questions to be answered, and with the help of her alcoholic neighbor and new BFF, Crystal Firby, Misty intends to answer them. Questions like: Is Misty's husband, Chuck, a total fag? Will Misty's 12 year-old daughter Madison beat her to death with a brick? Where are all the neighbors disappearing to and what's with all these giant insects, anyway? Find out the answers to these questions and more on Sinking Hearts!

Let's discuss Harold Pinter.
I stole this Cecil Beaton photograph (another, not too shabby), just flat stole it like this is the Internet or something, from a New Yorker profile written by John Lahr a few years back. It's an incredibly foxy photograph and it accompanies a really great profile that you should definitely print out and take with you on your July 4th Holiday Vacation, or your Canada Day Holiday Vacation, or Whatever, because how better to celebrate a long weekend than to read about a dude who used his Nobel lecture to drop the following science:
You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It's a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.
Then he quoted Neruda! Grrrrrrowl. I think I need a glass of water.
