Tokolosh, I was serious before about the David Lynch movie idea. It would be done The Straight Story-style sort of with your friend. At first, it would just focus on his life for about half the movie & then would turn freakish as his face is becoming disfigured starting at the eyebrow. It would conclude with the opening of the Natural History exhibit after the doctors had extracted the fetal skeleton of his twin brother.

A friend of mine (younger) introduced me to one of his friends recently who is 31 (more my age) who told me a story that would make a good cautionary/morality tale as a movie or book (maybe a book would be best). He knew this girl in high school who was salutatorian. She was a real achiever & went to Brown University (Ivy League) & then she became an attorney. She eventually became a District Attorney in a county near here. Well, she met a man that got her into drugs, cocaine & crack specifically, & it wasn't too long before she had lost her career & everything else & then went to prison for seven years, but you could show her as having a double life & seemingly getting away with it for a time. So, she gets out of prison & then starts back up on the shit. She starts stealing & also selling her body for it and story could be developed where she is quite good at conning people and so forth...stories from drug lore. Finally, she gets killed because she owes dealers too much money. If it was a movie, it'd be cool to have Art Tatum's "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" as the theme of it & of course, throw in some contemporary hip hop in there too.

My home away from home. They have a giant Loveless poster in there I would kill for. The owner says he'll never sell it (the poster).

My former employer has some original Loveless promo posters still, I think.

Cool. Is he parting with them?

Yeah, I'm sure he would. I think there are still a few left. PM if you want the contact info.

My dream is that the owner, knowing what a good patron I am, will someday reveal to me that he's retiring and selling the store, and he'll hand it over to me for next to nothing. I can dream, can't I?

It could happen. When my friend's store closed after 20 years, he had a list of people getting "dibs" on the bazillions of cool promo posters he'd had up for years and years. My favorite (though I am not a huge fan, actually) was the one of Nina Hagen wearing a fetish mask and shooting green laser beams from her eyes.
