Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Oh wow! That's Ennis. With another Cassie. And he's still not much fun, totally not caring, immersed in wistful thoughts and probably rather wishing she'd be gone.

Almost all of the photos are Brokieish. The one you posted and the one with the woman (Alma!) at the kitchen-sink stand out as the most Brokieish to me.
The interior design of the indoor photos could be taken right out of our movie. Everything looks cheap, old and trailer-ish. The mood is bleak and the people look so very damned lonely, even when they're in company. I think it's the loneliness more than anything that makes the photos Brokieish.

Another thing the photos have in common with BBM is that they are photographs but look like paintings. Just like the interior scenes of the Twist farm look like (Vermeer) paintings.

Great find, Katherine! :)

I love all of these photos! Very Brokieish indeed. I think Chrissy is right that what ties them together most is the loneliness of the subjects. The one of the woman at the sink looks like a blending of Ma Twist and Alma. The furnishings remind me of growing up in our town in Ohio, too.

I'm glad Chrissy replied, because, although I got an email notifying me of your post, Katherine, it was nowhere to be seen. Turns out I had you on ignore. I have absolutely no idea how that happened!  ???

Brokieish or not, that room is so 1970s!  :laugh:
