Good Sunday Morning, Wonders in the Dark readers,
I was very fortunate to interview authors Eric Beetner and J.B.Kohl, on my blog yesterday afternoon, but due to the fact, that I don’t get as much “traffic” I decided to ask Sam Juliano, if it would be all right with him if I could
share my interview with his readers, as I give authors Eric Beetner and J.B.Kohl’s book one more push…before Eric, embark on a trip to China with his wife, to adopt their second child…Well, here it goes, I hope that you enjoy it too!…By the way, I have also posted a question and video for you at the end of the interview.
and Once again Thank -you, Sam Juliano.

It’s when two people are joined with God” Watson’s Bess responds to the question of what matrimony is in the opening sequence.  That’s one way of looking at it, but it’s more indicative of the strictly Presbyterian upbringing of her remote island (Shetland or Orkneys, it’s not made entirely clear); she is, from the outset, looking like she’s ready to meet her maker.  So much so that when she eventually does leave this mortal coil, it’s as if she’s returning home and it’s hard to feel any sorrow.  Certainly that is what Von Trier seemed to be saying, with his miraculous bells from on high.  (more…)
