Jerri Blank... You're My Hero!



I simply CANNOT wait.
Right now, I wish I lived in New York. Or at least had a nice hookup with someone who works for the travel industry, so I could get my freak on and see "Strangers With Candy: The Movie", debuting in NY TODAY, JUNE 28TH. Gahhhh!
Damn hipster city.

Oh, but I'll be right there when it opens here in Chicago on July 7th. Hell, I'll be the first one in line, dammit!

(FYI- above is a picture of Jerri's real mom, after giving her child away in return for a pitcher of beer. LOVE it!)

That's awesome, a movie of Jerri's latest escapades. Along with Clerks 2, what a summer!
My mom is also a huge Ami Sedaris fan, loves her writing and audio stories on the NPR, I hesitate to tell her about Strangers, what we know her from, because it's so different from her autobio stuff with brother David.

Hope you like it.Being a young, mild-mannered , clean-cut lad, I myself am looking forward to Superman Returns, also opening tonight I think. But I will be waiting until a matinee show in the middle of next week, as I no longer enjoy doing the sardine thing with 2000 of my closest friends on opening weekends, and their coughing, chewing, whispering and the blue glow of their constantly checked cel-phones.And of course, any trip to the cinema these days could be called "Strangers With Candy".

But next Wednesday, it will just be me, and the shuttle bus of seniors in the theatre. And there's always the chance I'll catch the eye of a blue-haired sirene at the theatre. Win-win.

Next Wednesday, eh...don't be too surprised if 'someone' in the theater starts getting all Bobby DeNiro/Cape Fear obnoxious all over your ass during the movie...

Oh, and speaking of 'seniors' in theaters. Me and the woman behind this blog went to see 'Art School Confidential' last Friday night and the first thing she says when we walk into the theater (very loudly I might add) is, 'It smells like OLD PEOPLE in here!!'

Of course she was right. We were prolly the only folks in the place under 65.

I'm surprised your keen senses (seriously, they are always like hyper-acute) haven't noticed that wafting from the life drawing room.

Kind of a dirty old people smell.

Thursday at noon then, don''t need someone going all Cape Fear during my superhero movie.

*Sigh*... you just looooove that "old people" remark, don'tcha? Next time I'll mix it up a bit more, i.e., "the atmosphere reeks of Depends" or "my nostrils detect a twinge of Pepsodent"...

And Karl? Protecteth not thine mummy from the lewd Sedaris, for it is a ginormous element of who she is... and that is a silly person who enjoys making cupcakes and cheeseballs.

Yes, I don't want to steer her away from the real world like that, or people's other sides, but you weren't there after she decided to go with her girlfriends to see both Old School and The 40 Year-old Virgin. She was so upset when she came home both times.Not as much as after 50 First Dates but...

speaking of 40 year-old virgins, how was Life Drawing this morning Laura?

Hey did you catch the Fresh Air NPR interview with Amy? She talked about baking cupcakes, collecting uniforms and life in general. She would make a bitchin' friend - kinda like you lorelei and laura ly?

Mizz Danger, WAH! No I totally missed it.
But I do believe NPR's website has archives of all their Fresh Air programs, so mebbe I'll waste some more time on the 'puter today and dowload it.

And thanks for the generous comment. We all need to get together again, and SOON.

Don't forget to pick-up a bottle of "old people", from the makers of "new car smell". Just in case someone feels like doing something other than going to a movie.

Anybody going to the show with me won't FEEL like doing anything but going to a movie... but I'll totally bring it along, anyways.

And a bottle of "Pitted out T-Shirt". Fer dessert.

You want to borrow my bottle of "one-cheek sneak" ?

Laura says she won't mind if I loan it out, (wonder why)?

That way you're set for anything.

And I meant do something other than go to a movie, like bowling, or dancing, or whatever you young kids , with the rock and the roll, all gopped up on the goop, like to do.

Have a rip-roarin' time, you hooligans.

Yeah, Gramps! Sounds like an odorifous date! Cain't wait! How I long for the revival of Smell-O-Vision...
Nonetheless, I DO hope your skid-marked skivvies go for a bundle (no pun intended; well, mebbe a little) on eBay.

The whores out there'll buy anything.

Yeah, they can buy all they want, I'll make more. Chances are, I just did!

Smell-o-vision never died at our house. You should see Laura's kid run when I say I'm getting nervous.
