"He called me a baboon, he thinks I'm his wife."
"You'll get nothing, and like it."
"Your uncle molests collies."
"well... we're waiting!"
"There's a force in the universe that makes things happen. And all you have to do is get in touch with it, stop thinking, let things happen, and be the ball."

And now, you can learn the story of Mitch Cumstien:
In other film news, Elizabeth and Dan were over yesterday dropping off some stuff they need to store here while they're in Japan & we got talking about old TV shows. Elizabeth mentioned dhow she has seen the father from Good Times in a lot of stuff recently. I said, "John Amos" no shit. He's been in a million things. He was in Coming to America & Roots." She then asks, "What's Roots?" At first I thought she wsa kidding & then I thought I must have misunderstood her. Meanwhile, Dan is looking at her like she's crazy. As we realized she really didn't know what Roots is, we tried to jar her memory, assuming sh must know. Who the fuck is 29 years old & hasn't heard of Roots? She'd apparently heard of Kunte Kinte, but didn't know who he was. When I suggested that not knowing what Roots is was like not knowing what Saturday Night Fever is she didn't believe me, but then Dan chimed in w/ "yeah, that's a petty good comparison. They were both huge cultural moments in the 70s." I'm still not sure she believed us. She was impressed that Geordie LaFordge was in it though. Reading Rainbow has that effect on people, I guess.
