    you mean only images and nothing else? no kind of internal 'feel'?

    i said he could carry on making docos remember! just he has no imagination so should stay
    away from films. grizzly man was hilarious. herzog is not a real human hes a self-conscious caricature, like
    will self. hes great in that sense but it means he cant do art.

    i guess if you're born deaf/blind that also makes creating internal images a bit of a challenge
