Dear You...

You are getting sleepy.
You want you to come over and sing "Nice Dream" with me.
We shall dance around in our underwear.
You will Watch "Red" with me while we drink red wine and only speak French.
You will bring me Sushi and comic books.


Barnes

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn burn burn like fabulous yellow roman candles Kerouac We are all lost at sea, washed between hope and despair, hailing something that may never come to rescue us.

A trilogy of 3's a co.

So I realized that for three nights in a row I had dinner with three different couples. I wonder if the couple-friends from back home can't wait to once again make plans for four instead of juan solo. Something has to change. I don't know what. I will have to confer with Brooke who is a good cheerleader for me in these manners. For some reason I thought of the names of the first three girls I ever liked and they are all weird: Nilka, Zuleika and Sonia. My mum put in my jackass dvd copy thinking it was kangoroo jack. I wasn't around to see her reaction.

[ Runaground - James ]


For every woman you will leave an open door
You find yourself thinking why can’t I have more?
You say there’s nothing you can do
You tried your best but you were only being you
Oh no
She’s gone
Back wherever she came from
You watched
Her go
Your reaction’s far too slow

You don’t know what you’ve got until you’ve lost it all
Might I suggest you find a softer place to fall

Austin Film Festival comments

+ Prey For Rock 'n Roll

At first it started as a comedy, then it took a very nasty turn into melodrama. At first I was not into it but by the end of it I liked all the characters and wanted more. Gina Gershon was supposed to be there to introduce the film but instead she was at sound check. I was mad and disappointed. It was great to see Lori Petty, Tank Girl herself, in a movie.

+ Pieces of April

Oliver Plath and Patricia Clarkson are great. The director introduced the film, apparently he wrote "What's eating Gilbert Grape"? and that movie was filmed in Austin.

+ Breakfast with Hunter

Hunter S. Thompson rules. He has way too much fun with fire extinguishers. Forget Ozzy, give this man a TV show.

+ Mystic River.

B O R I N G.

+ Elf

Funny and adorable. I want to see it again when it comes out in November. One of my fave lines is "This is buddy the elf, what's your favorite color?". Also, Zoe D. is cute.

+ Girl with a pear earring.

Boring and Scarlett wasn't hot in it at all.

Shin Jingi-naki Tatakai

There's no greater movie going experience than going to The Alamo Drafthouse for a midnight showing of a new highly anticipated flick. This time it was Kill Bill. They were selling Kill Bill panties. All the girls went mad for them. I was very much so looking forward to this film. I grew up on Anime + Kung Fu + Samurai Saturday at 3pm cinema when I was a kid. It did not disappoint. It makes your brain spin for a while. I've got to see it again.

" All I can say is, if I went and saw “Kill Bill,” I wouldn’t be able to even think about seeing another movie until I saw “Kill Bill” again. I’d feel like, “That’s a movie like sex. That’s a movie like drugs,” you know? “I can’t even think of another girl until I’ve had another piece of that p—y. I’ve got to get high on that drug again, like, tomorrow.” - Q.T.

The Making of Kill Bill


Lost, still not found

I went to see Lost In Translation again tonight. Before the movie, they ran trailers for Caddyshack and Where The Wild Buffalo Roam. The movie makes me melancholic and happy concurrently. What does Bob say to Charlotte in the end? On Monday I read some indie Filmmaker magazine that had Sophia on the cover, they were making a deal about how Scarlett looks like her. I hadn't really noticed. One thing I did notice is that there were a lot of Charlotte sitting around hugging her knees which reminded me of a photo Sophia took of Kirsten Dunst that I scanned once.

I want these Andy Warhol toys. How can any self respecting Velvet Underground fan not want a Japanese Andy Warhol Vinyl Banana? I went comic book shopping with the pirate, she was very excited about El Cazador#2. She ended up buying two other comics. A new comics geek in the making.

Sunday Morning

Sunday morning, praise the dawning
It's just a restless feeling by my side...
Sunday morning and I'm falling
I've got a feeling I don't want to know

Too often, Sunday spells silence around here. I perform a one man play called "How can I make this Sunday be lazier than the one before?" I sat around, picked some songs for the October Mix, and kept fine tuning The Current Crush mix. I decided I want to serenade someone with The Beatle's "This Boy". If only I could play guitar. If I only I knew who to sing to. The other night I sang some Rufus for the pirate while driving. Sunday is over. For some reason it is hard for me to fall asleep Sunday nights. What I want is to go run around. A little strawberry wine with some Tom Waits and "Motion Picture Soundtrack". I'll even sing "If you wear that velvet dress" if I get really drunk.

Anyways, write me. you. now. don't wait. say hello.



[ Bottle of You - Joseph Arthur ]

bottle.jpg

You're a tether ball
Fastened to the end of my head
Who you are and who you want to be
Are competing at opposite ends
And when they hit you back and forth
You squeeze tight around my neck
Darling i can barely breath
But i know that you mean
Absolutely no disrespect


School of Rock

schoolofrock.jpg
Last nite I went to see School of Rock with miss. pirate. The movie is an instant classic! Run, don't walk to go see it. Now. Right This Minute! This is the most fun to at movies I've had all year. The right way to put it is that IT ROCKED! Also, you can listen to the soundtrack at the website.


[ Lush Life - Nat King Cole ]

sweetheartthedrunk.jpg

I`ll forget you, I will
While yet you are still burning inside my brain.
Romance is mush,
Stifling those who strive.
I`ll live a lush life in some small dive...
And there I`ll be, while I rot
With the rest of those whose lives are lonely, too..
