And the best thing about Easter if you’re me

All the candy’s cheap tomorrow.

Hope everyone’s been having a good day — this weekend has been rest, recuperation and more, god knows I’ve needed it. It’s beautiful outside and I’m looking forward to either trying out an old recipe I like or else trying a new one for the hell of it — we’ll see how I feel — but either way it’ll make a great dinner. Spring’s here and my mood is already well on the up.

More books, music, politics and more to talk and think about soon, trust me — including a couple of fine purchases I snagged for free yesterday at Amoeba…

A film script waiting to happen

Thanks to Phil/unperson on ILM, I have now been made aware of this story, a Myspace blog on the fracturing of the band Brain Drill. This is another one of those ‘really, you’ve got to read it yourself’ deals, but let me quote a bit that had me casting actors in my mind for the respective parts:

Sure enough we get pulled over rite outside of salt lake city utah. Emediatley after the 3 of them had just smoked a blunt. So needless to say the car completely smelled like weed. So the cop comes up to the window and the first thing he says is ” i smell pot”, so sure enough they take us out of the car and they completely search the entire van. They tear everyhting apart and even use a k-9 dog to sniff out everything. Sure enough they find all of marco steve and jeffs weed, they find 6 pipes and they even find jeffs 8th of mushrooms. At that point i was convinced that we were going to jail but for whatever reason they let us go. After we pulled away i (dylan) told them ” from now on the rule of the band is to not ever bring weed pipes or other illegal drugs into the van and also not to smoke inside the van” jeffs response was ” i don’t think thats gonna happen bro”

Not to mention the ending:

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WEREN’T PAYING ATTENTION LET ME JUST SAY IT AGAIN… THEY LEFT!! THEY LEFT!!! THEY LEFT!!!! I DID NOT KICK ANYONE OUT!!! THEY LEFT!!!! HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY THAT??? THEY LEFT!!!!

As Roxymuzak said on ILM, “That part makes up for the lack of punctuation in the rest.”

And I kinda assume that’s my shadow in the corner. But who knows. Welcome spring and happy Easter in any event!
