Wasn't there some rumor about it possibly being turned into a film or something?

Man you know like that part of the Wire where McNulty goes to the FBI profilers on his serial killer, and they give him a picture of himself, I've kind of felt like that from a couple of Onstad's Roast Beef strips
agreed.

Along the same lines, a friend of mine calls me "Nice Pete" on a regular basis.  His blog post from yesterday is maybe the closest yet that the Greg / Nice Pete venn diagram has come to just being a big circle.

that makes sense to me--i can totally imagine you coming home from quizno's and drawing up a profile of the guy who started the family business in 1909.

I asked the female for a Bacon Chipotle Club, and I agreed to the larger size (one foot). It was served open-faced, and I allowed for a squirt of pink-colored "chili" mayonnaise. I am glad that I did. The sandwich bites came alive and sang once inside my lips. I ate and ate, the pleasure of each mouthful growing like a fire inside me.

The inevitable follow-up of having metal get a lot of media attention.

I guess its back to smoking blunts in parking lots.

Whhhhyyyyy I'm glad you asked Big D

Hamletmaschine, Heiner Müller

Quote
1: Family Scrapbook

I was Hamlet. I stood at the shore and talked with the surf BLABLA, the ruins of Europe in back of me. The bells tolled the state-funeral, murderer and widow a couple, the councillors goose-stepping behind the highranking carcass' coffin, bawling with badly paid grief WHO IS THE CORPSE IN THE HEARSE/ABOUT WHOM THERE'S SUCH A HUE AND CRY/'TIS THE CORPSE OF A GREAT/GIVER OF ALMS the lane formed by the populace, creation of the statecraft HE WAS A MAN HE TOOK THEM ALL FOR ALL. I stopped the funeral procession, I pried open the coffin with my sword, the blade broke, yet with the blunt remainder I succeeded, and I dispensed my dead procreator FLESH LIKE TO KEEP THE COMPANY OF FLESH among the bums around me. The mourning turned into rejoicing, the rejoicing into lipsmacking, on top of the empty coffin the murderer humped the widow LET ME HELP YOU UP, UNCLE, OPEN YOUR LEGS, MAMA. I laid down on the ground and listened to the world doing its turns in step with the putrefaction.

Here comes the ghost who made me, the ax still in his skull. Keep your hat on, I know you've got one hole too many. I would my mother had one less when you were still of flesh: I would have been spared myself. Women should be sewed up - a world without mothers. We could butcher each other in peace and quiet, and with some confidence, if life gets too long for us or our throats too tight for our screams. What do you want of me? Is one state-funeral not enough for you? You old sponger. Is there no blood on your shoes? What's your corpse to me? Be glad the handle is sticking out, maybe you'll go to heaven. What are you waiting for? All the cocks have been butchered. Tomorrow morning has been cancelled.

There's a link to the best translation available, by Carl Weber. Basically dude is one of my favorite poets of all time, in any language. Criminally underappreciated and -read in the states; at the very least I think everyone should read that play I linked to.

/proselytize

PS. This:

"Müller himself directed a seven-and-a-half hour performance of Hamlet (in which Die Hamletmaschine was the play-within-a-play) in Berlin in 1990."

is fucking amazing, and I didn't know anything about it until today. If I had a time machine, I think that'd be at the top of the list.

Just finished reading Frank Miller's Ronin. The word "meh" comes to mind. The ending was pretty cool though and I guess it's also an important comic in an historical sense. Am about to begin reading Gaiman's The Sandman. I've heard nothing but good things about it so it better deliver. I'll post in this thread a lot more now that's it's summer, that's when i read comics.

actually, ronin is one of the few miller comics from that early on that no one really thought was all that amazing. sure, it was good for its time, but it hasn't made the longterm impression that other early stuff, like his work on daredevil and batman, did. i've never read it myself, but i've always heard that it was kinda meh, which is part of why i never bothered.

Anyone not reading Alec Longstreth's stuff is silly. I reread my super-sexy New Frontier absolute today and it was still moving. Also Runaways is rewarding the second time thru, though with Vaughn that's no surprise. My best friend returned my copies of All Star Superman, which he mostly hated, which was heartbreaking, and the first Seven Soldiers trade has me pretty excited. Also, I'm a nerd.
