Zhao Qing Dinner


I dreamt that I had live versions of these either in my bed or on the seat next to me along with a bunch of other wriggly vertebrate/invertebrate creatures. No actual silverfish, per se but certainly a sloppy loose amalgam of translucent wormy immature live seafoody bits.

Pussy n' Banana

By comparison, my cat almost puked on my head in bed this morning.

The Snake.

A comedy about a guy who joins a body image help group under false pretenses to pursue a bulimic girl after his buddies tell him a normal sized girl he was hitting on was too fat. Dark, funny douchery; the character exploits the bulimia, but the film does not. All the nobodies in it perform their asses off.

Dig In!

Sheer marketing genius, all those hoses, reminiscent of delicious sausage.
I can't help thinking though, that if this was in Hindi, Tony Bourdain'd be sucking them down.....
I gotta assume that the 10% ethanol adds flavor, or get you drunk while you eat 'em...

New Millenium Tattoo Zeitgeist

I saw this gent and as he turned his head, I said "Is that a Marlboro pack on the back of your head?!?!?!"
He said "Sure is -look at this."

He then explained in one Zen line that I can't remember that we basically live in a world run by corporations and that he realized the best way to deal with it was to embrace it.

Then he said "Wanna see the 420?"

Monty's Right Profile

I had a recent conversation with a successful professional, who had never heard of Montgomery Clift - I was nonplusssed, owing to her apparent high degree of intellect but I also realized that exposure was exposure, so I strongly recommended A Place In The Sun and From Here To Eternity

The most interesting thing about his relationship with Elizabeth Taylor, (they were best friends) was that she saved his life:

I also told her about one of my favorite Clash songs, The Right Profile chronicling his tragic post-crash addiction and depression.

Say, where did I see this guy?
In Red River?
Or a place in the sun?
Maybe the Misfits?
Or From Here to Eternity?

Everybody say, "Is he all right?"
And everybody say, "What's he like?"
Everybody say, "He sure look funny."
That's...Montgomery Clift, honey!

New York, New York, New York, 42nd Street
Hustlers rustle and pimps pimp the beat
Monty Clift is recognized at dawn
He ain't got no shoes and his clothes are torn

I see a car smashed at night
Cut the applause and dim the light
Monty's face is broken on a wheel
Is he alive? Can he still feel?

Nembutol numbs it all
But I prefer alcohol

He said go out and get me my old movie stills
Go out and get me another roll of pills
There I go again shaking, but I ain't got the chills
