p.s. Hey. ** Dominik, Hey, Dominik! Having spent the vast majority of my weekend deleting files and foreseeing that this entire week will be eaten up by the same mind-deadening activity, I would have to say I agree with you. Ha ha, and ugh. Hopefully that’ll solve the problem because, otherwise, I’m at a loss. And, yes, the attempted hacking or whatever the hell it is continues nonstop at the same high speed 24/7. The blog is not exactly in the peak of its life cycle right now, let’s say. Thanks for the docuseries title. I’ll see if I can hunt it down somewhere. Interview told me it’ll be in their summer issue whenever that arrives. What?! (About the non-payment) I sure hope that’s been sorted out now. I will admit I have been wishing this deleting marathon had happened back in the day when I was doing a lot of speed. It’s the perfect speed activity. So thank you from my dreams. Love building a secret passage connecting your apartment to mine with a hyperloop transportation system so we could zoom back and forth and have a coffee and blab fest in each other’s cities whenever we want, G. ** David Ehrenstein, I met Paul Morrissey briefly once and he just glared at me like I assume he does with virtually everyone. There wasn’t a peep of evidence of ‘New from Nowhere’ online anywhere, which is obviously why it wasn’t included. Thank you very much for sharing your Morrissey-related wisdom and knowledge, as always. ** Misanthrope, Interesting fantasy about your death situation. If I was a psychiatrist … I don’t think I’ve ever imagined what my death will be like. It just seems unfathomable. Well, good news, I guess, that your mom’s in the clear so far, but, yeah, it doesn’t sound like much of a relief either. Urgh. Hope your taxes weren’t too, err, taxing. Kayla’s a big Runaways fan? Cool. My favorite Runaways song is ‘Alright You Guys’. What’s hers? ** Jack Skelley, I coined that phrase? Cool, I feel snooty. Hooray about the Expat acceptance! Yes! Do you know when it’ll pop up, or, I guess, pop out? I missed your memes. I just labored over this problem child of a blog all of Easter. And watched ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’, which is dumbass as hell but fun. And ate a bunny. Chocolate. Dark. New week, dude! What’s the plan? ** Bill, Hi, B. Thanks for the bandcamp tips. I don’t know either of those, and I want to! Oh, ‘The Inner Scar’, yeah, it’s very cool, very then and as opposed to being very now in a good way. It’s something. It earns its keep. It has an effect. I would certainly spring for a viewing if I were you. ** Paul Curran, Hi, Paul. Oh, man, such a drag among drags: deleting files all day everyday. But whatever. The anthology comes out in the fall? Isn’t that right? I can’t remember. I guess you’re at a cabin by a lake. Sounds beyond dreamy. Not as dreamy as driving or training to Nintendoland, mind you. Big love. ** Chris Kelso, Hi, C. Thanks, man. I don’t know what a Ayrshire accent sounds like, but I will study it closely. James is mercurial, that’s for sure. Or that’s a polite way to put it, ha ha. I would love to go back to Scotland, and a pint sounds great even though I don’t like beer all that much. I don’t think I know ‘They Look Like People’, no. Huh. It might just be on this ‘illegal’ site I use that has a ton of horror on it, I’ll go check. Thanks a whole lot for the tip. ** Steve Erickson, I think his films are pretty solidly excellent up through ‘Blood for Dracula’, and then he got mostly lost, IMO. Brix and Mark were at Disneyland on the day the guy got beheaded on the Matterhorn?! Or maybe it was some other Matterhorn-caused death. Wow. Got to get that book of hers. ** Jeff J, Hi, Jeff. Me too, on the troubles being over, but it’s going to be an inescapable combo of painful and boring until they are, unfortunately. Yes, so shocking and terrible about Gian. Do people know what happened? I guessed a heart attack? Anyway, a huge loss. What a great press. I never met him, but we exchanged emails, and he seemed great. Yeah, really sad. Do you know what will happen with Tyrant now? For me, there’s a gradual but definite fall off after ‘Blood for Dracula’, which I think was the last of his films that had the ‘Andy Warhol presents’ preface, even though I don’t think Warhol had much of anything to do with his films starting with ‘Flesh’. Among the later ones, ‘Forty Deuce’ is kind of interesting, as I recall. Take care, bud. ** Okay. Today … well, what can I say that the post hasn’t already said? See you tomorrow.
