Back in the ‘Shackle again

Tonight there is some Ramshackle. Ramshackle ’04. Ramshackle in the park. Bowen Park. 6pm. Near the river.


112. INT. THE WIND TUNNEL

July 30, 2004

Indiana sees the woshippers below start to leave the temple. He
looks at Willie and Short Round.

INDIANA
Okay — now listen — you wait here
and keep quiet. Shorty, keep an
eye on her.

Short Round nods and hands Indy his bullwhip and shoulder bag.
Willie sees Indiana peering down at the sheer drop below the
mouth of the wind tunnel.

WILLIE
Wait — what’re you doing?

INDIANA
I’m going down.

WILLIE
Down? Down there?! Are you
crazy –!

INDIANA
I’m not leaving without those
stones.

WILLIE
You’re gonna get killed chasing
after your damn fortune and
glory!

INDIANA
(looking at her)
Maybe…someday.
(smiling)
Not today.

Today I was established as the Creative Director at Keller Internet Marketing. We are going to burn this town up–with our new colour scheme.


Husky

July 28, 2004

Breakfast at the Husky House. Overheard a certain hairdresser from a local salon giving a waitress a 20 minute seminar on caring for your blonde hair colour. It’s all about “maintenance” apparently. When it ended she said, in a bored and half-annoyed voice, “Yeah, that’s something to think about.”

There was an extremely old man in a giant mint-green buick having problems. His buddy preened himself in the window directly in front of chelsea.

On the place-mat. I noticed there’s a town in Alberta called Deadman’s Flats. There’s nothing on the interweb about this town. It may not really exist. Population: 1 (Husky House gas jockey and chef).


Bosses

Last week, one of my bosses described one of my co-workers to a customer as “kind of autistic”.


Today’s Quote

“I prefer the company of peasants because they have not been educated sufficiently to reason incorrectly.”
~Michel de Montaigne (1533 – 1592)

Oh, Michel, how I miss you so…


Thoughts on “Temple of Doom”

July 26, 2004

Why?

Who read the script?

Why didn’t Harrison Ford say something when he signed on?

Where is Short Round now?


Today’s Patron of the Boundary Crescent More Than Movies

July 25, 2004

Grandma Death:

Named so for her frail body, withered skin, stringy grey hair and sunken cheeks. She buys lottery tickets somewhere but comes in to get a print-put of the daily 3. She’ll often get a bag of free popcorn while she stands in the window and studies the print-out. She still has her wits about her and is rather spritely for someone who must be at least two or three hundred years old.


Today’s Tao

“The 30 spokes of a wheel all join at the centre. The usefulness of the wheel lies in the emptiness of its hub.”
~Lao Tzu
