Fist Shaking

Bus, we are now at war. I may not strike today. I may not strike tomorrow. But you'll get what's coming to you soon enough.

Ha ha! You thought it would be easy living far from campus. Less hippies, you said. More access to pro-life brochures and "We Support Our Local Police Dept." bumperstickers, you said. Now you know. Now you know.

i feel your pain, yo. the santa monica buses have a tendency to wait until i'm exactly half a block away before leaving. curse them. curse them all.

I misread this post initially and thought you were referring to Bush going to war, not the bus, and going on strike, not striking at the bus in anger. "How did I miss this?" I thought, and was about to check CNN, but then I read Jason's comment.

Also, last night, I heard the Ass Merchants for the first time. Good show, Mr. Corn, good show.

sean--just so you know, i totally thought the same thing at first and for a good long time afterwards until jason posted and it all became clear.

I'm glad you liked the A$$ Merchants (the dollar signs are actually part of our name, but due to the pathetic insufficiencies of the english language, they must be pronounced as "s"es)! Perhaps Michele has the video tape of our live performance lying around somewhere. I consider that the highlight of our musical career.

Not to mention the best damn light show I've ever seen.

and the best damn shots of doorways and that one of the window with the shadows and the cars going by.

damn but i'm a brilliant cinematographer

and um....yes all the crotch shots. totaly unnecessay and mostly to be blamed on erica anyway.

Posted by: michele on February 11, 2003 01:05 PM

Oh yeah, I forgot about all that funny business. You really didn't get to see much other than crotches and doorways (which are praactically the same thing, if you know what I mean, heh heh). But in real life it was cool, lots of lights. Pretty.

The crotch shots were completely necessary. Some say that the crotch is a window into the soul. And I, for one, want everyone looking straight into my soul. Unwavering gazes for hours at a time are what I'm talking about. STRAIGHT INTO MY SOUL.

I got your soul RIGHT HERE!

i've got your propagated masses of mesopotamians RIGHT HERE.

Posted by: michele on February 11, 2003 06:05 PM

ahhhhh!!! hahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!! ok, i'm better now. a-hem. i take full responsibility for the crotch shots. that video is a work of cinematic genius. we must find a copy! let's search google for "prolonged views of merchant genitalia." that should do the trick.

Do you know that your work, Ms. Dobney, is banned in five South American countries?
