Apres Breakfast….

Smoking a Don Thomas with the sci fi channel on. They’ve become the clearing house for a whole new generation of B movies. Right now it’s “Fangs”: genetically altered bats and Corbin Burnsen. The tone’s similar to “Lake Placid” (one of my favorite movies of recent years, chock full of barely sublimated homoerotic tension between Oliver Platt and Brendan Gleeson and plenty of bear references). As for Fangs – it’s a pallid time waster with computer generated bats. Of course the fat guy dies – (fat guys are now the acceptable casualties in horror movies, but only if they’re white) And just now a hipster kid character said -“can we download some MP3’s?” like it was porn. One of those embarrassing moments when you see that a scriptwriter has NO clue. Of course it’s not like if I’m some online whiz.
Hmmm for second time I’ve been aproached by by this 18 year old online. Completely unnerving. I’m at the age that I realize I could (and very nearly did) have a kid that would be seven years older than this one. That’s a thought to kill the libido. What’s the difference between “daddying” and “fathering”?
This cigar is very satistfying. Not that there’s anything freudian there.

It’s a diffferent thing when I acutally get enough sleep.But I have to resist my current habit of reaching for the radio or the TV within the first minutes of wakefulness. Now I’m left with shreds of this moring’s dreaming, and the TV’s yammering. Current house configuration has the TV directly across from the bed. First thing seen in the morning, last at night. Sometimes, I feel pinned bye the great eye. I used to read, I think, some time in the distant past. Even draw. “But TV gives so much, and asks so little!” Well I need to ask myself more.

A lot of what you think is….

Suppose you want to start a band right now. My suggestion is that you go and THROW OUT EVERY LP AND CD AND MP3 YOU OWN. Do you like a particular song? Recreate it from memory. I’m saying this because of the god-awful music videos used as bumpers on theN, and all nickelodeon related channels. All of it is a hideous goulash of sounds swirled together for “mouth feel” like mcnuggets. All of coming from the fact that folks are in the habit of recreating records and indexing their sounds via their music collections. Better everyone should have to go back to transmitting orally.
What else is there to crab about? I bought a hideously overstyled corkscrew today at Bed Bath and Beyond. Buffaloed by faux functionality. And I lost out on an Nancy daily I was bidding on. Out sniped.
