Bug Powder Dust

I finally saw Naked Lunch on Saturday. When I grow up I want to make movies like Cronenberg. I was only recently introduced to him when I saw eXistenZ in 1999. I really like how he twists a person's creation. He is pretty overt at times, but also subtle in a way that David Lynch isn't. David Lynch really seems to put people's insanity in the main point, but I think that Cronenberg likes to show that the insanity is in the creation. Or something. I need to see more movies by both of them. Tonight, Rabid is showing.

As a related aside, the song "Bug Powder Dust" by Bomb the Bass on the Kruder and Dorfmeister double album, The K&D Sessions, is all about Naked Lunch. After I finish Hagakure by Tsunetomo Yamamoto and A Primate's Memoir by Sapolsky, I will devour Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs. Look for the long lost WEstern Thought Wednesday to reappear this week.

Naked Lunch was great. Babies on faces? Not so great.

I'll believe it when I see it. And respond if it actually appears

You are such a freaking pessimist.

No, no you're totally right. But that doesn't stop you from being a loafwad.

Dude, you and fulsomegirl have got to see Naked Lunch.

That song is stuck in my head, its a little embarassing to be walking down the hallway at work humming "bug powder dust and mugwump j...., trying like hard to not blow my cover" to yourself. Thankfully no one has called me on it yet. They are all far to ... square (sure why not) to be familiar with the song. Or so my conceit goes.

I am just sitting here cackling evilly in my post-biking, cold weather voice.

That is such a good song and movie.

I want to go to karaoke night with your office.

Tragically, I have done Karaoke with my co-workers. And a major customer. It was not a fun experience - though I did gain schmooze points by correctly identifying which civil war army had the most generals with US Army bases named after them. I had a 50-50 and given my father's interests, the game was wildly tilted in my favor.

The crappy thing about schmooze points is they get you nothing when the schmoozee retires the next day.

Stupid schmooze points.

My guess would be the Confederate Army, possibly the Army of Northern Virginia if you want to get real specific.
