Yesterday was my 8th wedding anniversary and we went out to a wonderful dinner where I snacked on chicharonnes, spicy garlic barbecue shrimp, braised beef ribs in a mushroom barley risotto, bourbon cocktails, hoppy ales, and homemade blueberry ice cream covered in white chocolate chips.
Today, right now, my 80 year old dad is unconscious but recovering from successful open heart surgery to replace his aortic valve and perform a bypass, and I snacked on pancakes, peanut butter crackers, fudge, an entire one pound bag of carrots, chocolate sprinkles eaten out of my palm like a fucking animal, blistery microwaved veggie hot dogs dipped in ketchup, and straight chocolate syrup (just a little sip, really).
The point: I would pay good money for a recut Game of Thrones where I could choose the character that I wanted to follow – and that’s it – that’s the only scenes I’d see. I doubt this would be viable without first seeing the show proper, but I think it’d be a great way to explore a specific character.
When Cliff Burton wore that Misfits shirt—Zig Zags. When the Emergency Broadcast System interrupts that John Carpenter movie—Zig Zags. When a soggy pile of Thrasher mags and Jack Kirby comics spill out of a dumpster behind the Sunday School—Zig Zags. When the Ramones were scared of the basement and the Angry Samoans couldn’t find the right side of their mind—Zig Zags. When a kid breaks his elbow copying a WWF heel’s piledriver and starts laughing instead of crying—Zig Zags. And when the electricity goes off forever and torchlight reflects off chrome—Zig Zags.
