I’m at the Allen County Public Library getting a geology lesson.
Books lie, he said.
Well, as a well-known giver of relationship I’d say that you should buy a pirate ship say,”hey baby, the sea is calling.” Then shove off while she cries and waves a hanky. You just stare at her wistfully while your crew raises the sails. You’ll disappear over the horizon and she will realize she has made a huge mistake.
Cut to two years later, you return to port with your treasure that you’ve stolen on the high seas. You’re a new man. Cold. Hard. Your skin is like leather from the sun. You have some new scars from quelling an attempted mutiny on your ship.
You look up as you dock your boat. She’s there, looking just as beautiful as the day you left. “I haven’t left. I’ve waited for you every day since you left.”
You don’t say a word as you step off your ship into the dock. You approach her, staring into her eyes. Your lips are mere centimeters from hers.
A tear falls down her cheek.
You grab her by the waist and begin to whisper:
"I boned all the mermaids. All of them."
Then you walk away to the end of the dock and dive into the water. Mermaids swim to meet you and you make out with all of them. They are topless of course because they are mermaids. It’s actually a pretty gross display of public nudity. Really unsettling because, I mean, mermaids are part fish. Is this bestiality?
Who knows, man. Not me.
Please write me these kinds of questions.
Last night was the reunion show for one of my favorite bands of all-time: Skavossas! It was like being 16 and watching these guys at The Backdoor—made me miss @lukesarasota. (at Columbia Street West)
Ben Nichols of Lucero cut a solo album about my favorite novel, Blood Meridian. My brother informed me of it yesterday, and I’ve already listened to it four times, and it made me restart the novel again.
I don’t know that Nichols captures the atmosphere of the book (nor should he bound to it), but I think he captures each of the characters and the bleakness of their lives.
