Incredibly interesting things worth talking out

I am
writing
these slasher
notes

prose
gets
it
s
he
ad
chopped off

that’s
my mind
frame
these days

better this
than
throwing
in the
towel
altogether

“I’ll
make ya
understand…”
-beatles

clap clap clap clap

so
still
job
hunting
a lot
of
waiting
and waiting
hoping
and worrying

sitting alone
in bed
much of the time
fine with it

reading writing notes
like this
about all
aspects of my life
or life that
spins around me
as I am sometimes
a statue or
clark puts it: a dead zombie

in
the evening
take a few pictures
in the park
even then getting
a little sun burnt

by the time I
get back
to the house
feel the
soreness in
my shoulders
tell myself
I need
even more
exercise
here in Houston
hear of a one-time 108 reunion
considered it
for a second
flying up to NJ for a short trip
in August
then…
nah, fuck it

Starman, another superhero comic I’m reading, reminding me of Moore’s Watchmen, very well written. It pulls me right along into the story and I can relate with the main character, how he doubts himself and is not ready to handle his next set of very different challenges; sooner or later faces up to them and develops his skills. Originally a narcotics dealer, he is the gritty street-wise antique collector dealing with the recent death of his brother and his kidnapped father. He could easily play Morrison’s first character, True Thomas, in Seven Soldiers.

Not sure what I think about these movie adaptations of comics. For quick entertainment, I guess I’m down with it. Comic movies I’ve liked so far: X1-2, Spiderman 1-2, and Hulk. Oh, and From Hell, though Moore wishes not to be associated with it. Whatever else comes out, I’m in favor of mostly on a superficial level, in the sense that the comics medium can be more lasting and enjoyable. Though I should be reading more these days, always more and more, I tend to slip into some TV and movie watching as well.

When we first got here, I was psyched to find that they were airing The Alfred Hitchcock Hour on late night TV. Stuff like that. And I’ve been listening to a lot of old time radio on the podcasts. Soon enough, by the way, Apple will make podcast subscriptions much easier, as they will be built into iTunes itself. I highly recommend to folks out there to check out nostalgic radio. Link One | Link Two | Link Three.

And while I’m on the linkage rampage, here are some new pics: Clark at the park.
