#57. Dirty Animals, White Stripes, Conan O'Brien, U2

"Dirty Animals" went over relatively well. There was a lot of silence regarding it, so I can't really say how exactly it was regarded...I don't know how obvious this is, but Conan O'Brien has the best theme music out of the late night yucksters. It's also good to see him supporting the White Stripes this week. When I find me some money, I'll be getting their White Blood Cells and most recent Elephant albums. I've heard nothing but good. Also, very soon I'll be the proud owner of every official U2 album. Unless I'm horribly mistaken, and then the case will be that my semirelentless hunt for the lot will continue...

#56. Boomtown, Renaming Movies

Thanks to the season finale of Boomtown, I was able to keep up my streak of not seeing the last hour of The Ten Commandments. Speaking of which, if a movie can spend so much time not featuring its titular subject, I propose several name changes to past Hollywood features:

Citizen Kane to "Rosebud"
Star Wars to "Death Star Trench"
The Usual Suspects to "The Real Keyser Söze"

#55. Invasion of the World Featuring the Ballad of Joe Starbucks

I think I have my favorite password for this site. No, I'm not going to say what it is. I just thought the thought was prescient. It was on my mind. Aren't you glad I have this site? I'm sure you are. What is it that I talk about, anyway? Absolutely nothing, and not in the good Seinfeldian way either. That is, unless you consider me a sufficiently wacky character. Then perhaps there is some worth to this intermittent babbling. Wouldn't that be reassuring?

If they were to elect a Big Man Blogger (or what have you), I suppose I'd have to do a lot of bribing...

I'm on the cusp of writing a story entitled "Invasion of the World Featuring the Ballad of Joe Starbucks." Previous to this, I have finished writing "Bizarro Lives," a wacky tale of Yoshimi the Japanese Immigrant Who Reads Horoscopes, and all I have to do is make sure nothing terribly obvious is wrong with it. They feed on that sort of thing, you know.

#54. Blogger's Crossroads

Should I keep this going or what? And what is this "or what?" option anyway? These are questions that do not lose me any sleep.

#53. I Blog

Would I AM someday become I BLOG if some nut tried hard enough to put that out there?

#52. Hannibal Lecter

Yah, so I haven't seen Manhunter or Red Dragon (or Hannibal or all of The Silence of the Lambs), so I'm free of the bias one way or another. So many say that Manhunter is the best Lecter film out of the lot, but then there's always a tendency to say the earliest of a lot is the best (haven't noticed that?). I'm wondering what I would think.

#51. Bizarro Lives, Dirty Animals, The Impressionist

The percolation for "Bizarro Lives" is encouraging. This is another story developed around the same time as "Dirty Animals," but a much different story, something I strive to do. If it comes forth as easily as "Dirty Animals," which was eventually finished later on the 3rd, I'll be a happy man. It's exciting when this sort of thing happens. Then it's on to editing another story, "The Impressionist," which was taken to be too offbeat in its original form. I hate going back to work on stories, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.

#50. Dirty Animals

There's no greater feeling for a writer than when he's on a roll. I've written at this typing most of a short story that's been cooking for the better part of a year, and all in a single day. I'm pleased with myself. The title of the piece is the very enticing "Dirty Animals."

Yah, I'll put up with the shit for a bit longer. This time it'll be on my terms...
