You know your sleeping pattern is fucked when...  Reply with quote  

you go to bed at 9 AM.
And it feels ok.

I watched American Psycho around 7 AM.
Big ups to Sneeb for recommending this to me.
This character was amazing. I haven't been able to pull the right words out of my head to explain how great he was...or how on point the character represented that aspect of our culture.

we're all psycho. some of us use better filters than others. Great research went into his character...and the actor was perfect.

My favorite part was when he was in the dry cleaners and he couldn't deal with the Asian lady. He started flailing his arms and was like "I can't understand you because you are a FOOL"
or something to that affect.

his commentary on contemporary music was the shit.

anyway, i am up now...and I am trying to catch up with life.
The Very Belated Personal Journals Record Release Show was a great success. I'm thrilled that so many people showed up.

My brain melted by the end of the evening...into the next morning. I had a lot of things on my plate. Thankfully it is all over and done with. And it all worked out. Phew.

If I didn't get to speak to you at the show, I apologize. There were so many people there who I knew...and so many things I needed to deal with...some stuff that didn't get dealt with at all.

I was happy to provide the audience with some spoken word treats. One of the poets (Alixa) was from the HBO Def Poetry thing, the others (Jared Paul, Mike Celleme, and Bernard) were from the Providence Poetry Slam Team. They all came through in the clutch and rocked the crowd with just words. That's a beautiful and powerful thing. I'd like to thank them all for being such a great part of the show, weaving in between performers and in and out of my set.

Joe Beats took center stage early in the night to display some of his new beats for the Non-Prophets album. It was interesting to watch him get uncomfortable about it even though the crowd was clearly enjoying themselves. he was like "Alright...I can tell y'all ain't really feeling it so I'm gonna end this." hahahaha. People were like "whu??"
I love those situations though. It was nice to give the peops a tasty treat of beats. Later on Joe bogarted his way onto stage during my set to...RAP. This was probably the most confusing part of the wasn't worked out or anything. He just popped up on stage in the middle of my set and was like "Hey man...I just want to rock this song real quick." heh. then he proceded to rap AT me....the Anticon Dis Song. It was interesting. What the hell am I supposed to do? I just sat there...smiling. I was actually impressed with his delivery...I'd like to hear more raps come out of Joe's mouth as long as he's not dissing me. Good shit though.

Jezuz--Messiah Carry (the Panti-Christ) and DJ Merf made wonderful use of their time on stage. I'd like to thank them for helping out with the evening and rocking the crowd even though most people didn't know who the hell they were.

Grand Buffet made it an official party, as usual. Van Halen "Jump" anybody? hahaaa. I love these guys for being able to make any situation FUN...and rocking the crowd no matter who is in attendance. Lord Grunge and Grapadon are great. They drove 10 hours to be there...and I am grateful for that. I hope to be included in their cd release party at some point.

Shalem came through in the clutch (as usual) and DJed through out the night, even though I was intending on doing so. By the time I finished up sound check, got our set list figured out, all my merch out of my house and into my car, I realized it was too late to grab a whole bunch of records and get to the club in time to dj. He hooked it up, while I stumbled around the merch booth trying to organize everything else. haha. it was hectic.

Our last performance together was a good one and it ended on an emotional note. We did many songs...almost all of the routines are shows have become popular for....I lap danced G-Dub...Shalem did an extended scratch routine to Mullet...Xaul Zan made a guest appearance in a coconut bra....Shalem and I slapped each other's face really hard....we showed pictures of our worldly excursions together....we ended the night with a hearty high five before going into Runaways.

I could spend some serious time explaining everything that happened on July 13 in detail, but you should have been there. heh.

Lupos is one of my least favorite places to play. the sound always sucks no matter what. the sound man is not trying to hear any advice. But we played there because we would have easily sold out any of the other club's in Providence. There were over 550 people in attendance, including:
Mommy (who left before I performed my Mother's Day rap)
the Rewrite Girl
the Specialist Girl
the Fairy with Broken Wings girl
almost ALL of my ex-roomates
and many old and familliar faces who warmed my heart

thank you. everyone. thank you.

and special props and peace to Shalem.
Perhaps he will share a project with Xaul Zan in the future.

Mary Harron is the shit for making this movie. For those who don't know she is one of the creators of "Punk!" zine in the 70s which inevitably coined that term. And John Cale's (from Velvet Underground) score only heightened the punk/anarchy aesthetic. I fucking love this movie.

A few memorable scenes:
Blonde Chick: "What do you do?"
Pat Bateman: "I'm into murders and executions."
Blonde Chick: "Oh really? I'm sorry to hear that..."
Pat Bateman: "Why as that?"
Blonde Chick: "Most people I've talked with who are in Mergers and Acquisitions don't like their job very much".

the other part I like was Pat Bateman getting nasty kinky in that threesome with hideous Phil Collin's "Susudio" playing in the background, which inevtably conveys the message that anyone having sex to Phil Collins is quite simply a psycho.

that's a great movie, I need to see it again, I love when he is trying to feed the cat into the cash machine and he doesn't shoot the one guard but does shoot the other.... I mean there are a lot of parts, but that probably made me and my friend laugh the hardest.

Thanks so much for writing all that out for those of us unfortunate souls who couldn't be there, it sounds like it was an amazing time.

yes, great movie.  Reply with quote  

i read pat bateman didn't even want to do the film at first due to the violent content. the studio wanted leo dicrapo to do it. mary wasn't having it. then pat bateman read it again, went over it with the director, and boom, we have a nutcase killing the homeless.

i like that collin's song. it's a token of my childhood.

and i as well have gone on three weeks with sleeping at 7:30am. I just stay up. there's nothing to be pissed or depressed about. so i play megaman 2 til my thumbs break.

yea i've got to say American Psycho is one of the better movies i've seen in a bit. like you said it was researched very well, but one thing for you not to see is American Psycho 2. I was like werd they have a sequel, and i never knew cause it was a straight to video release and lucly i work at a movie store and i picked it up. but, with most sequals, i was very disipointed. they turned a well thought out movie into something that seemed to have been trown together over a weekend full of movie watchin wich consisted of the movies scream and i know what you did last summer. well anyways if you want a good laugh and to just see it because you saw the first one go ahead, but remember i warned you.

ps. sage come to canada, please.

Oh man, Sage and you guys must check out Bret Easton Ellis' book, American Psycho. Mary Harron did a good job adapting it to an R rating and Christian Bale was excellent, but check out the book, especially if, like Sage, you were into the '80s social commentary. Wonderful stuff.

too bad they had to ruin everything and make an American Psycho 2 with that chick from That 70's Show...i havent seen it but i've heard its a disgrace to the novel and original movie having nothing to do with them a teenny bopper killer plot...i've heard that this sequel is pure trash...its a straight-to-video release too...

yeah man....  Reply with quote  

American Psycho is one of my favorites...I'm glad Sage liked it so we can one day converse about it. I've seen it too many times...I know most all of the dialogue.

Scenes that stand out to me are when Patrick Bateman is talking to the bum telling him he "doesn't have a positve enough atitude" and he "smells like shit". Then he finally stabs him to death because he "doesn't have anything in common with" him.

The whole Dorcier issue reminds me of my girlfriend. Long story.

I distinctly remember reading the book on a bus full of people I knew and was annoyed by. I thought of many many different ways to kill everyone on that bus many many different times. I highly recommend the book. One of my faves.
